Chia Pudding Parfait

Chia Pudding Parfait

Chia pudding is a breakfast life-savor. When I taught living foods at the Tree of Life, my mantra to students when a creation didn’t go as planned was ‘It’s always edible.’ That’s beauty of a plant-based foods. It’s hard to ruin minimally process, wholesome ingredients. This recipe is a classic example.

I was originally trying to make snack bars for this recipe but they wouldn’t stick together. No problem! It’s now a crumble. Just whip up some chia cream and you’re set to mix and match a medley of meals.

Swirl a dollop of chia cream in your morning smoothie or eat it plain as pudding. Top the crumble on oatmeal or add more tahini and roll into calcium-rich, energy balls. Or, go all out, and make this delicious fresh fruit parfait. Pear is pictured, but many fruits will work wonderfully – think peaches, plums, and cherries.
