Chia mousse Parfait

Posted by

A healthy breakfast to begin your day is the definitive Chia Mousse Parfait. It is prepared with almost the same ingredients as chia pudding.  I prefer calling it a mousse as coconut cream lends a lovely texture to it. 

I always use coconut cream or milk or sometimes both as the base. However, I do tweak it once a while for variety with a little Chocolate, fruits, spices, etc.

In the following recipe, I used powdered berries for that gorgeous color; Fruit purees are always a great option. I use ripe fruits and berries to compensate for the low sugar.

I have shared the recipe of a few chia parfaits before on Instagram, but this is my first blog post on chia mousse. Enjoy
