Chia Granola Parfait

This simple recipe requires just 5 basic ingredients. The four layers means that it is bursting with so many different flavours, textures and nutrients. This Chia Granola Parfait is surprisingly filling thanks to the fibre and omega-3 healthy fats in the chia pudding layer. Chia seeds can swell to up to 10 times their size by absorbing the liquid, which helps keep us feeling full. The yoghurt (which can be dairy-free) provides gut-friendly bacteria (the good kind!) that can benefit the gut microbiome.

If you’ve never heard of chia pudding, all it involves is chia seeds and your liquid of choice: water, almond milk or juice.

You could even prepare this Chia Granola Parfait the night before and leave it to chill in the fridge, ready to be devoured when you wake up! It’s equally delicious served as a healthy dessert after dinner.

You’ll want to make this for yourself ASAP, then serve it in little shot glasses to impress all your friends with this dazzling masterpiece! The recipe can be easily doubled/tripled depending on how many guests you’re serving it to.
