Perfect Parfait

I had some leftover Put the Lime in the Coconut Smoothie and Blueberry Chia Pudding in the fridge from the other day, so naturally I decided to put together the most delicious pretty parfait for breakfast.

I added a few other layers of goodness for extra creaminess and crunch and here is what I ended up with!  A thing of beauty.  And so fun to dig into!

I simply layered the following ingredients in this order:

Raw buckwheat groats

My Blueberry Chia pudding

Tbsp of plain greek yogurt (lactose free) coconut yogurt would work great as well

Tsp of my Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Raw Buckwheat groats

My Put the Lime in the Coconut Smoothie

I topped everything off with a dollop of the Blueberry chia Pudding, frozen berries, sprinkle of chia seeds and some dried goji berries.

This was so much fun to create and even more fun to eat.  Such a wide variety of flavours and textures keep the tastebuds tantalized.

I use this chia pudding as a layer in parfaits, on top of greek yogurt, on top of oatmeal, etc.  You can also eat a bowl on its own with a little granola or your toppings of choice.

Ingredients:

1/3 c chia seeds

1 c frozen wild blueberries

1 c unsweetened almond milk

COMBINE BLUEBERRIES AND ALMOND MILK IN A BLENDER.  BLEND UNTIL SMOOTH.  THIS MIXTURE WILL YIELD ABOUT 1 1/4 CUPS.

ADD THIS MIXTURE TO A JAR WITH A LID, FOLLOWED BY THE CHIA SEEDS.  STIR TO COMBINE ALL INGREDIENTS WELL.

IT WILL LOOK A LITTLE WATERY, BUT DON’T FRET, A FEW HOURS IN THE FRIDGE OR BETTER YET, OVERNIGHT, AND IT WILL THICKEN UP NICELY.

(COVER AND REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT)
