Chia Seed Yogurt Parfait

IMG_2014

I’ve been eating these every single day for over a month now, and I absolutely love them. They’re super simple and delicious. The macro balance is pretty good, but these are NOT low calorie! I enjoy eating larger breakfasts and smaller lunches which is why they’re pretty high in total calories, but it works for my diet. That being said, there’s a LOT of protein! At the moment, I really enjoy blueberries and banana, but I’ve also been eating a lot of strawberry-only parfaits.

Ingredients

  • 200g plain Greek Yogurt (I like Liberte or Skye)
  • 2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
  • 28g frozen mixed berries (1/4 cup)
  • 12g granola (1/8 cup)
  • 7.5g Ground flax seed powder (1 tbsp)
  • 5g Hemp hearts (1/2 tbsp)
  • 40g blueberrries
  • 44g banana
  • 15g cashew butter (1 tbsp)

Optional!

  • 7.5g of unflavoured Allmax Isonatural protein powder
  • .5 tsp Maca Powder

Directions

  1. Set up your container and area.
  2. Add Greek yogurt, chia seeds, protein powder, and maca powder. Mix well.
  3. Add in frozen berries, mix gently.
  4. Pack the mixture down in your jar. On top, add your blueberries and chopped bananas, or whatever fruit you desire.
  5. Cut a small piece of saran wrap, and place it over the top, pressing it into the jar. I do this to keep the granola and toppings from getting soggy until I want to mix them up.
  6. Add in granola, flax seed powder, and hemp hearts.
  7. Screw on the lid, and leave it in your fridge overnight.
  8. When you’re ready to eat it, unscrew the jar and pull the piece of saran wrap out!
