Blueberry Nice Cream and Chia Pudding Parfait

Post by Megan Stulberg

Breakfast! Break that frickin’ fast! But seriously, breakfast is important and people should make it a priority to eat it every day. If you don’t have a hearty appetite in the morning — try this blueberry nice cream and chia pudding parfait that I whipped up. It’s light and refreshing, but filling enough to keep you going until lunch. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free and raw.

Ingredients…

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups light coconut milk (approx. 1 can)
  • 1 cup fresh whole blueberries
  • 1/4 cup 100% maple syrup
  • 6 tbsp white chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp pure vanilla extract

    Directions…

    1. Chop bananas. Place in plastic bag, then leave in freezer overnight.
    2. Whisk together coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla in large bowl or plastic storage container.
    3. Add chia seeds by the tbsp, stirring vigorously with spoon to prevent unwanted clumping.
    4. Cover bowl with cling wrap and leave in fridge overnight.
    5. Next morning, stir chia pudding then place back in fridge for 1-2 additional hours to help it further thicken.
    6. Next, make the nice cream. Remove frozen banana chunks from freezer. Using a food processor or blender, combine with 1/2 cup blueberries until smooth and creamy. Be careful not to over blend or else you’ll get a smoothie — which is also good, but not quite the goal here.
    7. When ready to serve, scoop chia pudding into mason jars or clear bowls by the spoonful. Layer with the blueberry nice cream, or top with remaining blueberries.

    Serve chilled. Makes 2 meal servings or 4 snack servings. Enjoy!
