Description

Packed with fiber, healthy fats and skin-boosting superfoods like collagen and chia seeds, these Blackberry Banana Chia Pudding Parfaits are a great grab-and-go breakfast, snack or dessert.


Ingredients

Blackberry Layer

Banana Layer

  • 1 ripe medium-sized banana, peeled and well-mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder (for an added sweet caramel-y flavour) – see note
  • 10g serving collagen powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Toppings (all optional):

  • coconut flakes, blackberries, and/or sliced banana

Instructions

  • For the blackberry layer: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, mashing the blackberries with the back of a fork. (Alternatively, puree them in your blender.) The mixture will be very runny, but the chia seeds will absorb the liquid and create a gel the longer you leave them to sit. Let the chia seeds work their magic overnight, or for about 4-5 hours.
  • For the banana layer: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir well, then cover and refrigerate with the berry layer.
  • Working in layers, distribute the blackberry and banana layers between 4 small mason jars. Top with additional berries, toasted coconut and/or banana slices.
  • Seal the jars with their lids. These will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Notes

If you don’t have lucuma, feel free to add your favourite natural sweetener of choice, to taste. Lucuma is a low-GI natural powdered ingredient that also offers antioxidants, fibre, calcium and potassium, but you can add a liquid or powdered sweetener here if you prefer. The banana adds quite a bit of sweetness on its own, so you may find you don’t need anything else.
