Breakfast Parfait


I feel so much better now and my appetite it slowly coming back. My creativity in the kitchen is still pretty much non-existing though. So I thought I'd share this old recipe instead (it's from my old blog in Swedish; my Swedish readers can check out the recipe here).

This breakfast feels so luxurious yet it's so good for you! Chia pudding + smoothie = lots of nutrients to start the day off in a good way. It's also quite satiating so that you're not hungry again after one hour or two. Top the "parfait" with whatever yummy toppings you have at home. When I made this recipe fresh figs were in season, but you could of course use banana, apple, peach, pear etc instead. It's also nice to top it with something crunchy. Here I used coconut flakes and dried mulberries, but you could also use granola or muesli.

Add a cup of tea or coffee and a magazine or a book and you have a great start to the day♥.

Breakfast Parfait

Serves 1

1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
2/3 cup (1 1/2 dl) oat milk (or other non-dairy milk)
Pinch of vanilla bean powder

1/2 lime, squeezed
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) oat milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) frozen blueberries
1 tbsp shelled hemp seeds

Fresh figs
Coconut flakes
Dried mulberries

1. Add the chia seeds, oat milk and vanilla powder into a small glass jar. Put the lid on and give the jar a good shake. Let sit for about 10 minutes and the shake again. Put the jar in the fridge over-night.
2. In the morning, pour the chia pudding into a big glass or into a bowl.
3. Blend together all the smoothie ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. Pour the smoothie on top of the chia pudding.
4. Top with fresh/dried fruit, berries, coconut, nuts, seeds, granola etc. Good morning!
