Lovers Chia Pudding Parfait

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris

Ingredients

  • For the Chia Pudding
  • 2 1/2 cups plant-based milk of choice (I love coconut!)

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • For the Pink “Soft Serve”
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced frozen bananas

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Pinch sea salt

  • For the Parfait
  • 2 small jars

  • Sliced bananas, for layering

  • Frozen raspberries

  • Fresh flowers (optional – for the photo of course!)

Directions

  • Make the pudding
  • In a container, whisk together all chia pudding ingredients. Cover and chill overnight or for at least 3 hours until thick.
  • Make the soft serve
  • In the bowl of a large food processor, combine bananas, strawberries, vanilla, and sea salt. Blend until thick and creamy, about 2 minutes. Scrape the sides as needed.
  • Assemble your parfait
  • Start by adding your sliced bananas (if you have a small heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut your bananas into small hearts). Press the bananas firmly against the side of the jar in an upwards motion.
  • Fill each jar about halfway with the chia pudding. Layer in your soft serve until it spills over the top.
  • Add your raspberries and flowers and serve.
  • Enjoy with someone you LOVE!!!!

  1. LOVE chia seed pudding! I always make mine with coconut milk and I love that you can always change it up with different spices and flavours for variety. Too bad my other half thinks it looks “gross” haha! More for me. 😉

  2. Looks so yummy. Trouble was I wanted to print for my daughter to make and there is no nice printable format of the recipe. Hitting print gives me 15 pages.

  3. Can you make the soft serve ahead of time? Or does it need to be made right before serving. Also, how long is the chia pudding good once made in the fridge?

  4. Omg Jilly, looks absolutely amazing, not to mention super delicious! I’m definitely gonna try it out! Can’t wait to go and buy the ingredients! Thanks Jillian. xoxo 🙂 ♡

  5. Beautiful photos :). I’ve never used chia seeds before, but tried this at home for the first time. My husband loves it so much, I’ve had to make two batches already. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  6. Looking so Lip-smacking Pudding!!

    But the problem is I never used chia seeds in pudding.

    I cant wait to make it.

    Thank you for sharing this..
