So let me start off by saying that I was not a believer when I first heard of chia pudding. I never ate a ton of pudding as a kid, unless it was in the form of a popsicle. But this refreshing lemon and berry chia pudding parfait with the crunch of macadamia has won me over.
Chia seeds are high in fiber with approximately 11 grams per ounce.
Chia seeds boast 4 grams of protein per ounce.
Little to no added sweetener.
Lemon and raspberries? Hello!
Perfect healthy guilt-free dessert, snack or even breakfast
So if you are a non-believer like me, this is the gateway parfait. Try it!
Lemon raspberry macadamia chia parfait
1/3 c. chia seeds
1 1/4 c. hemp milk (or other non-dairy milk-use homemade for raw)
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. maple syrup or raw honey
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 c. raspberries
1/3 c. macadamia nuts. roughly chopped
In a bowl combine the ingredients for the chia pudding. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight. Once the chia pudding is set, line the bottom of 4 small jars with raspberries and macadamia nuts. Pour chia pudding on top until filled to the rim of the mixture. Top off with remaining raspberries and macadamia nuts.
