Vanilla Almond Chia Parfait

Chia Parfait 01

To start the new year refreshed, I decided to cleanse my body by doing the Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox Program to get rid of all the Christmas indulgence. During this 12 day cleanse, my diet is mainly plant based, and I am avoiding all dairy, meat and sugar amongst other things. Over the next 12 days, I will be sharing some of the recipes I am making. I have developed a pretty delicious plant based menu to ensure that I can fill my days with beautiful, fresh and colourful foods!

As my first cleansing breakfast, I made a vanilla almond chia parfait . It is so simple, yet delicious and filling. Eating this parfait is a great way to start the day! You can prepare the chia pudding the night before and assemble the parfait when you wake up for a quick breakfast.

For this parfait, I layered the chia pudding with a blend of apples, almonds and hand picked partridgeberries. As a variation, you could replace by any fruit you have on hand such as pears, peaches, blueberries or strawberries.

It is so delicious, I will certainly be making a few variations of this for my breakfast over the next 12 days. When the cleanse is over, I will definitely be making a chocolate version!
