Chocolate Raspberry Chia Parfait

Cheers to wellness with what kind of reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream!

A layered chia pudding parfait is a great way to start the day. Even though it looks like dessert , it’s still really healthy- for real. The chocolate layer is avocado, cacao powder, a date and some water while the pink layer is raspberry, banana, lime, avocado and water. The chia pudding is made with chia seeds, coconut milk and just a touch of maple syrup. It’s like a pretty cup of fibre. How sexy is that?!!
