Delicate pink chia pudding

This delicate pink beauty combines several of my breakfast favorites: chia puddings, smoothies and parfaits, so it is safe to say that it is a new favorite combo around here – I have already made it in three different variations, but this one is my favorite so I thought I would share it with you lovelies. Like I have said before I absolutely love chia puddings because they are so tasty, super filling, easy to make and they are jam-packed with nutrients (see my post on chia seeds and their health benefits right here).

Though this might seem a little complicated, it is actually super easy to make and you don’t have to add the figs, it was just an attempt to make it look a little fancy shmancy ;)

Ingredients:

Chia pudding:
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons chia seeds (buy it right here or here, affiliate links)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
Sweetener of choice – stevia, acacia honey, agave etc.
4 tablespoons skyr/greek yoghurt

Raspberry/goji smoothie:
1 cup frozen raspberries
2-3 tablespoons goji berries
1 banana
A little oat milk to blend – or whatever milk you prefer

Directions:

  1. Start by mixing all the ingredients for the chia pudding – except for the skyr/greek yoghurt – and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1/2 – 1 hour or overnight to allow the chia seeds to expand and soak up the liquid. When it is ready to eat you mix in the skyr/greek yoghurt, stir well and set it aside.
  2. Blend all the ingredients for the smoothie – only add just enough milk for it to be able to blend properly. Depending on the berries you can add a little sweetener (eg. liquid stevia) if needed.
  3. Now, start by adding about 2/3 of the chia pudding to a jar or bowl, mix the rest of the chia pudding with about 1/3 of the smoothie and add it to the jar as well, top it off with the rest of the smoothie and you are done, enjoy!

Note: The figs are purely decorational (I ate them as well of course), but if you would like to add them as well, then you simply add the thinly sliced figs before adding anything else to the jar – push them against the glass to make them stick and carefully pour the chia pudding and smoothie into the glass. You can use a spoon to hold the figs into place.

Messy tropical mango parfait

fil-15-10-2016-18-31-24
This layered mess is one of my absolute favorite kinds of breakfast parfaits with a tropical taste of summer. To make this messy beauty I simply layered banana/mango/pineapple smoothie, passion fruit, plain skyr/greek yoghurt, mango chunks and then started over with more of the banana/mango/pineapple smoothie, passion fruit, skyr and then finished it off with some more mango chunks, so good! Enjoy!

Blueberry breakfast parfait

Healthy parfaits are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast since they are not only super filling and full of nutrients, but they also look and taste absolutely amazing! It almost feels like I am having dessert for breakfast – does it get much better than that?! Haha well maybe if I had actual dessert for breakfast ;)

Parfaits might seem like a lot of work, but they are actually really easy to make and they usually do not take much time to prepare either. To make this blueberry breakfast parfait you simply layer blueberry smoothie (blend banana, blueberries, a little pure vanilla powder and almond milk), skyr/greek yoghurt, muesli, mixed berries (I used blueberries and strawberries), banana slices, more blueberry smoothie and some fresh blueberries to top it all off, enjoy!

What is your favorite kind of breakfast?
