Immunity Boosting Chia Seed Parfait

Sitting here, in my home, mid-quarantine.

Hoarding TP & antioxidants, for the forseeable forever.  

 

This could go one of two ways. 

1. I could crawl into a hole and drown myself in pandemic documentaries and knock-off N-95 masks.

 

Or 2. I can get freaky with some kitchen staples, get on  offense and put the"health" in global health crisis.

 

I digress.

Ripe juicy mango (hi vitamin C), flavonoid-rich blueberries, immune-supporting black-elderberry syrup, creamy probiotic-packed yogurt and crunchy granola clusters make this layered beauty a quaran-ten out of ten in my book. 

Then again, coming from someone who's worn a robe past 10am for 3 weeks straight and is slinging dad-jokes like its their day-job, maybe don't just take my word for it.

Hope this jar of sunshine finds you well this week, my loves. Sleep, sweat, & suck down those immunity-boosting anthocyanins. We've got this. 

Prep time: 2+ hrs

Assembly time: 5 min

Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 cup non-dairy yogurt (I love Nancy's Probiotic Oatmilk Yogurt - any flavor will do)

  • 1 cup sliced fresh or frozen mango

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 4 tsp black elderberry syrup (or sub blackberry or blueberry jam)

  • 1 cup low-sugar granola, store bought or my favorite homemade recipe, linked here

Directions:

Begin by stirring together the chia seeds, almond or coconut milk and the maple syrup, and leaving to thicken in the fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is best!). 

Once the chia pudding has thickened up, remove from the refrigerator and fold in a few large spoonfuls into each of the two mason jars. Next, layer in some of the sliced mango, non-dairy yogurt, a teaspoon of elderberry syrup (or jam) and a few spoonfuls of granola.

Repeat this process - now layering in more chia pudding, blueberries, non-dairy yogurt, elderberry syrup (or jam) and another portion of granola. 

Top each jar with more sliced fruit and garnish with a sprinkle of granola.

 

ENJOY!
