This magical parfait recipe comes from Jenny of Positively Jenny! It's not only whimsical & gorgeous but packed with healthy fats that help stabilize your blood sugar. (recipe below)
Note: This recipe consists of 3 separate parts and does take some patience to make. But, the results are so worth it!
1. Chia Pudding:
- 1 cup nut milk of choice (I love homemade or canned light coconut milk)
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Optional: 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes then stir again to incorporate chia seeds. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight.
The burcha recipe can be found on the Loni Jane website
Jenny soaks 1/2 cup burcha with enough water or nut milk to immerse it with extra liquid floating. Let it soak at least 12 hours for full nutritional benefits.
3. Pineapple Banana “Nice Cream”
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple (or fruit of choice)
- 1/4 cup thick yogurt (Greek is great, but Jenny likes Coyo coconut yogurt)
- Liquid if needed to blend
A food processor truly works best for this, however you can attempt it if you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix. Place all ingredients in a food processor (except the liquid) and let it run, scraping down the sides as needed, until it becomes creamy. If it isn’t turning into a creamy consistency, feel free to add liquid of choice a tablespoon at a time until it breaks down into your desired consistency.
Layer, starting with all of the burcha, then half of the nice cream, then as much chia pudding as desired, then the rest of the nice cream. Top with more chia pudding, granola, fruit, coconut chips, or anything you’d like.
This recipe comes to us from Tasty Plates by Vic & is filled with vitamins and minerals, such as potassium & magnesium. Plus, it has just the right amount of fruit to make it really delicious!
Ingredients for two smoothies:
- 1/2 a cup of fresh spinach
- 1 1/2 cups of chopped frozen spinach
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- 1/2 a cup of coconut water (regular water may be substituted)
Blend all ingredients in high powered blender until you reach your desired texture. Enjoy!
