Three Layer Chia Parfait

Here is a brilliant recipe from Irene and Victor at Erbology to inspire you! First of all, you’ll need to make a simple and delicate cashew nut cream.  Then, you will need to prepare a chia pudding soaked in your favourite plant-based milk (ours is obviously tiger nut mylk!).  You can play with different pudding and colours – this one has turmeric vanilla and one with red berries and cinnamon. In between the layers, sneak some fresh or frozen berries for a splash of colour. Last but not the least, top it with some delicious tiger nut granola with sea buckthorn and enjoy!

Method

Turmeric Chia Pudding

  1. Take one bowl and pour the tiger nut or coconut milk in it. Pour the chia seeds and whisk. Leave 1-2 minutes to rest, then whisk again. It will begin to harden slowly. Stir again and then leave for another 1-2 minutes.
  2. When the pudding is hard enough, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  3. Leave aside.

Wild Berry Chia Pudding

  1. Use the same technique as for the Turmeric Chia Pudding.
  2. Add the berries and mash them with the fork while you whisk in the pudding. It will begin to become a nice pink colour.
  3. Put aside in a different bowl.

Cashew Vanilla Cream

Place the cashew nuts in a high-speed blender together with the milk, maple syrup, lemon salt and vanilla. Blend well until the mixture becomes smooth enough. Put aside in a different bowl.

Now you can assemble your parfait.

  1. Start by choosing some glasses or jars you like, as I did.
  2. Put a layer of the cashew vanilla cream then add some mixed wild berries.
  3. Add another layer of pink chia pudding, then place another layer of berries and granola.
  4. Finally, add the turmeric chia layer. Garnish with berries and granola and that’s it! Bon Appétit!
