Cake for breakfast? Well maybe not cake, but black forest chia parfait is healthy enough to stand in instead of your usual go-to.

But how exactly does it compare to the luxurious black forest cake?

Well, the "base" of the cake is the tastefully bitter and creamy cocoa chia pudding (adjust the amount of cocoa to your taste). The cream is replaced with yoghurt for a healthier twist, and the cherry factor is pumped up through the use of cherry jam (sweetness and acidity to complement the chocolate!) and chopped up cherries- the crux of any black forest cake, though instead of maraschino cherries, just use fresh ones!

Use the basic chia pudding recipe with cocoa powder, then layer it with mix cherry and vanilla yoghurt. This chia pudding parfait would be one of your favorite ever!
