Recipe: Summer Fruit Chia Breakfast Parfait #vegan #glutenfree

Hi Friends!  We have been so busy over here with my sister's wedding and family in town but I wanted to take a quick minute to share a delicious breakfast that S and I have been loving!

It's super simple and I got the idea after heading to the grocery store for my regular almond milk and seeing this Silk Cashewmilk. I had some chia seeds, fresh mangos and nectarines in my pantry. 

And of course because S is the best helper she was all about it!

I used 1/2 cup of chia seeds mixed with 2 cups of cashew milk. Then added 1 TBS of vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp of almond extract. I feel like almond extract goes so well with fruit. But maybe I would have added cashew extract if such a thing existed!  And add 2 TBS sweetener. I used brown sugar. You could use maple syrup or honey too!

Give it a vigorous mix and store in the fridge for about 12 hours. Allow it to set up. Chia seeds get all gel like when they sit in liquid. So a pudding consistency. 

Then layer it with fresh ripe summer fruit and enjoy as a snack or for breakfast like me!

Tell me, how do you use fresh fruit?  Have you tried chia pudding yet?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. This looks delicious! I wonder how it would be sweetened with agave? If I make it that way, I will let you know. :)

  2. I love making chia pudding. I haven't tried with the cashew milk though. Looks amazing!

  3. MMMMM! That looks lovely. I haven't tried it with mangoes but I do love them so I am sure it is delicious.

  4. These look super tasty!! I have made chia pudding but I haven't tried it with cashew milk. I think I may like that taste better.
