Chia Seed Pudding with Raspberries & Goji Berries 

*makes 2 (+ extra chia seed pudding) 

Ingredients

For the chia pudding:

  • 2 ½ cups plant milk of choice (we used almond)

  • Fresh raspberries, for layering
  • Goji berries

The steps

To make the pudding:

  1. In a container, whisk together all chia pudding ingredients, except for the ½ cup of fresh raspberries. Cover and chill overnight or for at least 3 hours until thick. Once the chia pudding has thickened, transfer it to a blender, add in the raspberries and pulse until incorporated. 

To assemble the parfait:

  1. Start by adding ¼ cup each of Greek yogurt to two jars. 
  2. Fill each jar about halfway with the chia pudding.
  3. Top with additional raspberries, goji berries, and shredded coconut, and serve.
  4. The most important step of them all, enjoy with someone you love!
