Acai Coconut Chia Parfait Recipe

Acai Coconut Chia Parfait Recipe

Not only are these chia pudding parfaits light, creamy and coconutty, but the nutrition benefits are countless—thanks to the fiber-filled chia seeds and antioxidant-rich acai powder. 

INGREDIENTS 

Blackberry Layer:

1½ cups coconut milk

⅓ cup Navitas Organics Chia Seeds

1 cup blackberries

1 tsp. Navitas Organics Acai Powder

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt

Banana Layer:

1 banana, peeled and mashed

1½ cups coconut milk

⅓ cup Navitas Organics Chia Seeds

1 tsp. sweetener of choice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Toppings (optional):

Coconut flakes

Blackberries

Banana slices

DIRECTIONS

For the blackberry layer: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, mashing the blackberries with the back of a fork. The mixture will be runny, but the chia seeds will absorb the liquid and create a gel after you let them work their magic overnight or for about 4-5 hours.

For the banana layer: Combine the coconut milk, chia seeds, sweetener, and vanilla in a bowl. Stir well, then cover and refrigerate with the berry layer.

Working in layers, distribute the blackberry and banana layers between 4 small mason jars. Top with additional berries, toasted coconut and/or banana slices.

Seal the jars with their lids and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
