Chia Pudding Parfait (with Two Flavors)!

2 servings
2 hr 5 min

I know, chia is so 10 years ago. It never got old for me! I am still forever amazed by chia's food properties and how it grows in size and stays crunchy, but soft and creates a pudding inherently on its own. It really is as cool as those old chia pet commercials :D


Now, there are certainly lots of health benefits to chia, but I

am no expert, so please do some research on what those are. I do know it has a bit of protein and a fair amount of fiber. Essentially this means it keeps you fuller for longer. I know this is the case for me, which is another reason I

like it so much!


One version I inspired from chunky monkey and used bananas and

walnuts. I made a tiny bit healthier with cinnamon instead of chocolate, but

throw that chocolate on yours if you enjoy it!


For the other, I used raspberry, pomegranate seeds, and chopped

pistachios. I didn't think that would be my favorite, but it really was

amazing. The pomegranate seeds are not to be skipped, they add such a nice

crunch.


Enjoy!

Tips
  • The best part of chia is adding in whatever flavors, spices, herbs, nuts, seeds, fruit, that YOU love. Have fun with it :)
  • Use whatever milk you have on hand. If you are vegan, oat and almond milk are favorites for me. Generally, I like whole milk for mine.
