Raspberry Chia Seed Parfaits, festive and fruitful!
These parfaits would make a wonderful holiday breakfast…or healthy dessert!
I forget how much I love chia seed pudding, it’s so incredibly easy to make and good for you! I love how one food provides fiber, protein, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals all in one shot! Plus, the variations are endless! You can add cacao to make a chocolate treat or top with fruit of your choice such as berries, kiwi or bananas. You can even try adding granola for extra crunch!
I took my “go-to” chia seed pudding recipe and added cloves and cinnamon for the holidays, which is highly recommended! The combination of the spice and milk reminded me of a chai latte!
