Did you know that chia seeds can be traced back to Mayan and Aztec culture? This superfood packs a ton of nutrition, and works with coconut milk and fruit to create a creamy pudding.

I’ve tried a lot of chia parfait recipes, but this flavor combination is definitely my favorite (and my husband’s favorite). This recipe only takes 10 minutes to make and uses a limited amount of ingredients. I love making chia parfaits on Sunday and then grabbing them for breakfast all week.

Chia Parfait Calories

I’m not much of a calorie counter. I stick with the theory that I should always be putting good things into my body. And as long as I feel good and look healthy I don’t worry about calories in and calories out. However, chia parfaits deserve an honorable mention.

With the coconut whip topping and granola, this chia parfait clocks in at around 350 calories a serving. If you’re leave the coconut whip and granola off and just eat the chia pudding you’re looking at just 141 calories and 10.2 grams of fat (about 13% of your daily amount) per serving.

Tips & Tricks

  • Chill your canned coconut milk upside down in the fridge overnight. When you open it the next day the liquid will separate from the fat. This recipe does not use the liquid – but you can save it for a smoothie!
  • Let your chia parfaits sit overnight before enjoying. Chia needs some time to expand and soak up the moisture.
