When my yoga teacher asked me to make some smoothies for her to serve to people during a yoga detox day I took my chance to introduce the people with a delicious creamy and lush smoothie, showing how delicious healthy vegan food can be, of course! Well I’d like to call this a mission succeeded because not only did I get a voice note saying the smoothies were delicious, Ive also been having this for breakfast the past three days, even my mom enjoyed it!…
Chia parfaits are my go to lazy breakfast meals, they require little to no prep and are convenient since they can be made ahead of time. Not only is it an easy breakfast, but it’s also a filling and healthy way to start the day. Just don’t forget to check your teeth afterwards, chia seeds love hiding away between your teeth, they love it!
For this parfait I used home-made my own chocolate cashew mylk, but feel free to use store-bought plant milks. If you can find a vegan chocolate milk just add cacao powder and a sweetener to the chia pudding, I left the measurements in the recipe below. I’ll make a post on how to make your own plant milks from scratch, it’s super easy. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your own liking, try adding different fruits or maybe topping it with some coco whip, no ones judging you, treat yo selves!
I had these with a bunch of citrus fruits and called it a breakfast. I’ll be working on more different easy and affordable breakfast ideas asap, I mean chia seeds are great for the bod, but since they’re such a “super” food not the cheapest. Always feel free to leave suggestions in the comments below.
Also I’d love to see your recreations, so feel free to tag me in your pictures on instagram.
There are all types of dietary restrictions, wether it is gluten, refined sugars, gmo’s, processed foods or oils, it always comes as a nice surprise when you find dishes that fit your dietary needs at a party, restaurant or any other occasion where there is food. Since I’m celebrating my one year anniversary I wanted everyone to celebrate it with me, I’ve already uploaded a recipe for blackberry bars but for those who are gluten and/or refined sugar free I’ve made another recipe for blueberry/raspberry coconut bars, oh and did I mention they are raw as well! Whenever it comes to food I want everyone to enjoy, and yes even if you’re not vegan I’ll make you enjoy these vegan treats with me, because they are just as tasty!
These bars are quite simple to make, the only time consuming thing is soaking the cashew nuts (this will make them nice and soft) and letting it all solidify in the freezer, but all of this won’t cost you any effort, the making of the recipe though takes about 10 to 20 minutes depending on how fast you work. Minimum effort, maximum reward, these are the types of recipes are the most convenient, of course I like spending hours in the kitchen and don’t mind getting my hands dirty, but not everyone has the time, or patience, so this one is for you!
You can have these bars with a cup of tea, on a smoothie bowl like I did or just eat them as they are.
You could also try adding toppings before they are solid like fresh fruits, such as berries, figs or mango, or maybe you want some hemp seeds on top!? They are your bars so make them however you like.
These bars will stay good for a while if stored in the freezer, which is what I would recommend. If you want to have one just take it out of the freezer and let them come to room temperature a little. Or take some out and keep them in the fridge, this way you’ll never have to wait for them to get soft.
