This breakfast or filling snack ticks all your macro and micronutrient boxes, is super quick and easy to prepare, and easy to tote for those rushed weekday mornings. It's deeply nourishing properties comes from the organic raw super foods and grass-fed whey protein you will find in our Vanilla Bean Super Smoothie blend, as well as the nutrient powerhouse that is the humble chia seed, further boosting your omega 3 healthy fats, fibre, and plant protein. Make your chia pudding the night before and layer it with all your favourites and you've got yourself a delicious, decadent, and nourishing meal, that you can pop in a jar and take with you wherever you need.
For the Chia Pudding (serves 2)
- 4 tbsp Vanilla Super Smoothie
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 Medjool dates
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup coconut milk
For layering the parfait
- 1 sliced ripe banana
- Handful of chopped walnuts
- Shredded coconut
Blend all your chia pudding ingredients until smooth and creamy, and place in an airtight container in the fridge to set for 4 hours or overnight.
Once set, layer in a jar or glass with sliced banana, chopped walnuts, granola (recipe for our homemade version coming soon!), and shredded coconut.
Note: If your chia pudding is set quite solid, you can add some extra milk to break it up a little before layering - depending on your preference!
