Berry Chia Seed Yogurt Parfait Recipe
I love making my yogurt parfaits with Greek yogurt because it is thicker sometimes. Greek yogurt has a bit too much of a tang to it.
I like to sweeten it slightly, but I don’t want the added calories in my healthy breakfast. I generally choose stevia, monk fruit, maple, or honey to add a bit of sweetness.
Can you just put chia seeds in yogurt?
Yes, that’s all there is to it. You can add chia seeds to yogurt, shakes, smoothies, and oatmeal. It’s delicious.
Can I add chia seeds to yogurt without soaking them?
Yes, there is no need to soak them. Just sprinkle them in and stir.
Here’s what you need for a chia parfait
Chia seeds – You will need chia seeds to make the chia pudding in this parfait.
Parfait cups – You will want a parfait cup to make pretty layers of the different ingredients. Make sure they have long-handled spoons so you can reach the bottom.
Summertime means lots of fresh fruit, so this berry yogurt parfait recipe is perfect for breakfast. You can alternate which berries you use depending on the time of the year.
Or, if it’s winter time, you can use frozen berries from the freezer.
This works wonderfully for a quick, healthy breakfast. But, it also makes a great dessert or snack. I like to make several, so I have them on hand throughout the week.
