Blueberry Pie Chia Parfaits

 Blueberry Pie Chia Parfaits | Easy, healthy prep-ahead breakfast.| Vegan, paleo, dairy-free, and gluten-free. | Loveleaf Co.

I go through serious phases with breakfast (lots of smoothies and smoothie bowls, obvi). But there's a non-negotiable: breakfast must be EASY (I'm talking 5 minutes or less). Or made prep-ahead style, a little wake-up gift to my future-self. 

These little blueberry pie chia parfaits are so simple to throw together, they basically make themselves (because simple is always best in recipes and in life). Take just a minute to mix together the date-sweetened almond milk with the chia seeds and divide between glasses or jars the night before.

The mixture will work it's magic and set overnight, turning into a creamy, spoonable chia pudding. When you're ready for breakfast, just layer with all the blueberry pie goodness; some yogurt (mixed with collagen peptides if you want a protein boost 💪🏼), blueberries, and some chopped nuts. 

And chia seeds? They're little powerhouses of protein and healthy fat that naturally expand in liquid. Full of health benefits, they're detoxifying, great for digestion, full of omega-3s, and will keep you full until lunch (no 10am sugar crash with these babies).

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add almond milk, pitted dates, vanilla extract, and a big pinch of sea salt to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour mixture into a large bowl and add 1/2 cup chia seeds. Mix well and then divide the mixture between three jars or glasses. Cover and put into the fridge to set overnight.

Repeat for the remaining two parfaits whenever you're ready to eat them.
