I love recipes that can act as both breakfast and dessert... this is one of those!
Layer up Toppers with chia jam and non dairy coconut yoghurt in my case- but you could use any plain flavoured sugar free yoghurt. Play with the flavours... why not try Vanilla Spice or Cinnamon toppers with a banana layer!
Chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients and perfect for energy and endurance since they take in water, forming a gel like consistency, and keep the body hydrated for long periods of time. Endurance athletes love these little seeds!
Recipe: Chocolate berry parfait
- 1 carton coconut yoghurt (or 1/2 cup yoghurt of choice)
- 1 tsp cocoa
- 1 tsp agave or maple syrup
- 1 cup raspberries (or strawberries)
- 2 tb chia seeds
- ¼ cup chocolate Wholeplus toppers
Mash the berries with the chia seeds and set aside to thicken for a few minutes.
Layer up the parfait in a drinking glass or small bowl. Serve immediately.
