Apple Chia Seed Pudding Parfait-this pudding is versatile enough to be served both as a dessert, a breakfast, or in place of whipped cream! It's jam packed with nutrition!
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • ⅓ cup/2 oz. white chia seed (I use this so my kids can't see the chia seeds, can use black)
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 3 oz. of dates (~4-5)
  • To assemble parfait:
  • 2 cups apples (1 large apple, small dice/cut into bite sized pieces, no need to peel)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • water to sauté
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into a Vitamix and blend, except assembling ingredients
  2. Saute apples in 1 tablespoon of water (just enough to prevent sticking, but not too much to steam, add in cinnamon, cook until just softened, about 3 min
  3. Layer pudding, apples, pudding, and end with a layer of apples
  4. Top with some pomegranate seeds for holiday color, granola or
  5. maple chipotle walnuts
  6. for a kick!
