I Quit Sugar | Chia & quinoa parfait


They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for me, it’s my favourite. It’s a chance to get creative, combine flavours you wouldn’t normally and make something so decadent, it could quite easily be eaten at any other time of the day. I loved making overnight oats, so this recipe was totally up my street. It looks so pretty in the glasses – and believe me, tastes even better. This made 6 tumblers, but obviously will make more or less, dependent on the size of your glasses. I also made mine without the berry sauce, so will use my recipe. But just google I Quit Sugar grown up berry sauce for that recipe.
Ingredients
  • 140g quinoa
  • 6 tbs chia seeds
  • 750ml Almond Milk
  • 4 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 8 tbs full-fat unsweetened thick Greek-style yoghurt
  • 4 handfuls frozen berries, chopped
Method
  • Cook the quinoa according to the packet’s instructions
  • Put in a bowl and add the chia seeds, almond milk and cacao powder. Mix well and leave in an air-tight container for 2 hours
  • Layer each glass – begin with the chia and quinoa, add the yogurt, top with berries and repeat
  • cover each glass with cling film and leave in the fridge
The parfaits will keep in the fridge for up to five days, so perfect for making in advance and having every morning before work. Don’t they look pretty!

  2. Ooh they look great! I've wanted to try chia puddings for ages but I didn't know what it would taste like so I was scared to try! x

  3. The texture is quite weird - it's quite bubbly but crunchy. I think I prefer overnight oats - much safer option too :) xx
