The easiest way to stay healthy during the holidays // plan and prep. 👊🏼 Even just a tiny bit. Like…how about a 5-minute meal prep? That makes THREE breakfast servings. These little pecan pie chia parfaits are so simple to throw together.
Take a few minutes to mix together the almond milk with the chia seeds the night before. Then in the morning, layer with yogurt (dairy-free, if desired), warming spices, and roasted pecans. 🍂 And voilà, an easy, detoxifying breakfast that's great for digestion and full of omega-3s (chia!) and will keep you full until lunch (no 10am sugar crash with these babies). Here’s the recipe 👇🏼(makes 3 servings):
2 cups unsweetened almond milk (I like @)
2 Medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup yogurt (dairy-free coconut yogurt if desired), divided
collagen peptides, optional (I like @ or @ )
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, plus more if desired
6 tablespoons roasted pecans, chopped
Add almond milk, pitted dates, vanilla extract, and a big pinch of sea salt to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour mixture into a large bowl and add 1/2 cup chia seeds. Mix well and then divide the mixture between three jars or glasses. Cover and put into the fridge to set overnight.
In the morning, to one chia parfait, add 1/3 cup yogurt mixed with 1/2 teaspoon (or more!) of pumpkin pie spice and 1 serving of collagen peptides for a protein boost (optional). Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons chopped roasted pecans. Repeat for the remaining two parfaits whenever you're ready to eat them.
