Immunity Boosting Chia Seed Parfait

Immunity Boosting Chia Seed Parfait

Did you have your anthocyanin today?
Whip up a parfait! This recipe includes a ripe juicy mango (high vitamin C), flavonoid-rich blueberries and black elderberry syrup, creamy probiotic-packed yogurt and crunchy granola clusters that make this layered beauty a quaran-ten out of ten in our book.

Prep time: 2+ hrs

Assembly time: 5 min

Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup non-dairy yogurt (I love Nancy's Probiotic Oatmilk Yogurt - any flavor will do)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh or frozen mango
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 4 tsp black elderberry syrup (or sub blackberry or blueberry jam)
  • 1 cup low-sugar granola, store bought or your favorite homemade recipe

Directions:

Begin by stirring together the chia seeds, almond or coconut milk and the maple syrup, and leaving to thicken in the fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is best!). 

Once the chia pudding has thickened up, remove from the refrigerator and fold in a few large spoonfuls into each of the two mason jars. Next, layer in some of the sliced mango, non-dairy yogurt, a teaspoon of elderberry syrup (or jam) and a few spoonfuls of granola.

Repeat this process - now layering in more chia pudding, blueberries, non-dairy yogurt, elderberry syrup (or jam) and another portion of granola. 

Top each jar with more sliced fruit and garnish with a sprinkle of granola.

Enjoy it!
