    Chocolate Chia Pudding & Peanut Butter Parfait

    Chocolate Chia Pudding & Peanut Butter Parfait

    Chocolate Chia pudding & peanut butter parfait anyone? It's time to treat yourself! To satisfy that sweet craving why not make it a healthy one? This parfait is not only nutritious but also super delish and easy to make. It is raw vegan, healthy and delicious! 

    Chocolate chia pudding:
    🌱 3 Tbsp.  Chia seeds from Sun Pyramid Health
    🌱 ½ cup chocolate almond milk
    (let sit overnight or for at least 20 minutes in refrigerator)

    Peanut butter layer:
    🌱 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
    🌱 ¼ cup soaked cashews (in water overnight or for 3 hours)
    🌱 2 t Tbsp.  Almond milk
    🌱 1 Tsp. Maca powder 
    🌱 ½ banana
    🌱 1 tsp xylitol
    🌱 2 ice cubes

    In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth; if too thick you can add a tiny bit more almond milk. But careful not to make it too runny.

    Serve with the raspberries or berries of choice. I topped with chopped Sun Pyramid Health Cocoa Beans for a little crunch. Enjoy!

    Benefits of Chia Seeds

    Aside from the omega-3’s, chia seeds are a little nutritional powerhouse so they’re a good food to include in your diet regardless. They’re high in fiber, protein, antioxidants, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and manganese.

    Chia seeds are one more superfood to add to your whole food arsenal. They’re easy to use and can be used in everything from smoothies, to baking, to oatmeal and to dressings and sauces. My favorite way to eat chia seeds is to make chia seed pudding and as of late my favorite variety is this peanut butter and chocolate chia seed parfait!
