Regardless if you’re new to your vegan journey or are a veteran wanting to explore a new snack or breakfast option, we have the perfect parfait recipe for you!
Our overnight raspberry chia parfait recipe is delicious, will make your stomach full and is full of nutrients you need to power through your day!
Raspberries are the star of this parfait. Raspberries protect the body from high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Raspberries are also a great source of fiber, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, and manganese. Raspberries have both a sweet and tart taste; so we recommend using monk fruit sweetener to help balance out the tart taste. However, you are free to use the sweetener of your choice.
Chia seeds are one of the best foods you can eat to fuel your body. Fun fact: “Chia” means “strength” in Mayan. With so many nutrients and health benefits packed into the small seeds, it’s clear to see the chia seed fits its name. Chia seeds are full of antioxidants, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and over 7 vitamins and minerals the body needs. Chia seeds also promote heart health, bone health, digestion, and healthy, regulated blood sugar levels. Chia seeds have a mild nutty flavor that pairs well with the sweet and tart of the raspberry. While they are small, they do pack a crunch for texture.
If you prefer to have more of a crunch texture element added, you can add granola. Some of our favorite granolas are: Paleonola grain free granola, superfood granola, and cluster granola.
This is a perfect light but filling and satisfying breakfast or snack option that is very high in nutrients. We are confident you are going to love this parfait recipe just as much (or maybe more) than we do!
