Chia seeds are a “super-food” (like one of those ones you should make a point of eating). They are rich in anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, they are the only food that is higher than flax seed in omega-3. Chia seeds are also rich in manganese and calcium — important bone strength and growth components. It is also rich in iron and protein.
This parfait tastes great with any fresh, sweet fruit and it is topped with whipped coconut cream. It has a similar texture to tapioca pudding and it will take on the flavour of what ever you add to it. Add a little vanilla or chocolate and you have a whole new breakfast!
What we love: So quick and easy! Lasts for about 5 days in the fridge. And it can be delicious (and so healthy) to just add a couple tablespoons to hot cereal in the morning.
What we love less: There is nothing not to love! All healthy, all great tasting!
