Mighty Chia Pudding Parfait

I am not much of a cook. Mostly I chop vegetables for salads or stir fries or to “warm them up” in the oven. However of the last couple of months I have become a little bit more daring and it is due to a fabulous cookbook: The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Lidden. It is a vegan cookbook, but all the recipes are easy to follow and most of the ingredients are in your cupboard. One of my new favourites is the

Mighty Chia Pudding Parfait:

3 tablespoons (45ml) chia seeds

1 cup (250ml) non-dairy milk (almond or coconut are my favourite)

1/2 teaspoon (2ml) pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 to 3 teaspoons (7-15ml) maple syrup or agave nectar to taste

fresh fruit, whatever is in season or to your liking

1. In a medium bowl whisk together chia seeds, milk, vanilla extract and syrup. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 2 hours to thicken.

2. Serve the chilled pudding in glasses alternating with layers of fresh fruit and/or granola. You can also add ice cream to the mix.

As you can see super-easy and very quick prep-time. Then you pop it in the fridge and pick it up whenever you fancy something sweet.

Do you have a favourite summer desert?
