Chia Seed Parfait

 

Chia Seed Parfait 2 Ways 

 

Oh my Chia! Did you know that in only 2 Tbsp of Chia seeds, this incredible native ingredient from South America, you can find 11gr of fibers, 4gr of proteins, 9gr of saturated fats (5gr of which are Omega3), 18% of the suggested daily intake of calcium as well as 30% of manganese, 30% of magnesium and 28% of phosphorus?

On top of this, Chia seeds help your organism to lower cholesterol and regulate the level of sugar in the blood. So this is a great way to keep your heart feeling GOOD starting from the very first meal!

 

Recipe for about 4 portions

Strawberries & Vanilla Pudding

Chia Seeds ¼ Cup + 1 Tsp

Ripe Banana  60gr

Oat Milk  1 Cup (230gr)

Citrus or Orange Blossom Honey  1+1/2 Tbsp (24ml)

Vanilla Extract  ¼ Tsp (2ml)

Lemon Juice  ½ Tsp (2.5ml)

Lemon Zest  1gr finely chopped

Pinch of salt

Optional: Beetroot Juice 1 Tbsp

 

  • Transfer the following ingredients into a blender: Sliced banana, sliced strawberries, oat milk, honey, salt, vanilla, beetroot juice and lemon juice. Note: Beetroot juice is optional, but recommended if you wish to get a very bright pudding.
  • Place the chia seeds into a bowl and pour the liquids over the seeds mixing gently with a wisk. Add the finely chopped LEMON ZEST and keep stirring every 5 to 10 minutes. The mixture will be quite liquid at the beginning, but it will reach the right consistency within a few hours or overnight. We make this mix not too dense so it will keep nice and creamy even after 2 days!
  • Transfer into a container and store in the fridge overnight.



Avocado & Turmeric Pudding

Chia Seeds  ¼ Cup

Ripe Avocado  70gr

Oat Milk  1 Cup + 3 Tbsp (285gr)

Citrus or Orange Blossom Honey  1+1/2 Tbsp

Turmeric Powder  ½ Tsp

Pinch of Salt



  • Transfer the following ingredients into a blender: Sliced avocado, oat milk, honey, salt, turmeric powder. Blend until smooth.
  • Place the chia seeds into a bowl and pour the liquids over the seeds mixing gently with a wisk. Keep stirring every 5 to 10 minutes. This mixture will be more consistent than the other one as we want to achieve 2 different level of creaminess in the end.
  • Transfer into a container and store in the fridge overnight.



How to serve:

Place a couple of spoons of avocado pudding into a glass jar or a normal glass.

Dice a couple of sweet strawberries and place them over the avocado pudding.

Add 2 spoons of strawberries pudding on top.

Finish with some thick Greek yogurt which can be seasoned with a drop of vanilla and little honey or another sweetener of your choice.
