Filled with fiber and Omega-3s

The chia seeds and the raspberries that are in this parfait recipe are responsible for the amount of fiber found in this parfait. Each serving has 12 grams of fiber; now, that's approximately half of your daily fiber intake. If you happen to have Raspberry chia pudding parfait for breakfast, then you would have taken half of the fiber your body needs throughout the day.

Also, chia seeds are rich in omega fats. You will find that omega-three fats are very rare in most American diets and so if you want to include some omega fats, you can start with this recipe.

Add in some protein

If you would love to add in some of your favorite protein to this recipe, then consider adding some of your favorite collagen or protein powder. Ensure that the protein you are adding will not change the texture or the flavor of the raspberry chia pudding parfait. You can also use one that is not flavored at all or one that has a vanilla flavor. I prefer adding some collagen peptides since they do not change the texture or the taste.

A few tips when making this recipe

There are varieties of canned coconut milk inconsistency. I prefer full-fat and organic coconut. If the chia pudding happens to be very thick, I prefer to add a quarter cup of non-dairy milk like coconut milk from time to time until the desired consistency is met.

For aesthetics, white chia seeds are the best for this recipe than black chia seeds. This, however, does not limit you from using the black chia seeds, you can still use them, and the pudding will still look good and taste good. In the recipe, we also included the 3-ingredient raspberry sauce that is completely sugar-free.

I love it when served with some crispy and grain-free waffles and some little nut butter. If, however, you would like to change the flavor, you can try using cherry chia jam.

This recipe is a bomb since you can top or layer as you wish, and add what looks and feels significant to you. My most favorite and what I would love to advise anyone is to add grain-free granola such as nut-free paleo granola and also our paleo granola. Any of these granolas are set to make your chia pudding very tasty and very delicious.

For the chia pudding

  • Soak chia seed in coconut milk for 2 hours. Put all the ingredients of the chia pudding in a food processor or a blender and blend thoroughly until they are smooth.

Add the non-dairy milk until the desired consistency of the pudding has been achieved.

For the raspberry sauce

  • Put the raspberries and water in the pan over medium heat and let them cook for 5-8 minutes while you stir continuously. Once the mixture and especially the berries have been broken down, you can now add in vanilla then stir it. You can also add maple syrup and then simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Now remove from heat and let it cool. After it has cooled down.

Assembling the parfaits

  • You can layer the chia pudding and raspberry sauce as you like. Divide it into 4-5 jars. Add some granola if you want and any toppings that you would love.
