YOGURT PARFAIT WITH FRESH FRUIT & CHIA SEEDS 

I love to start off my mornings with a creamy yogurt parfait topped with superfoods. It's nutritious, light, & energizing with fresh fruit, chia & flax seeds, dark chocolate chips, & goji berries.

A great tip for yogurt parfaits is to soak your nuts for 5 mins so the nuts remain a crunchy texture, but aren't so difficult to eat. You can use any fruits & nuts you have on hand; the possibilities are endless.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup strawberry yogurt (or greek yogurt)
1 chopped banana
1 peach
4 strawberries
2 tbsp blueberries
2 tbsp raspberries
2 tbsp granola
2 tbsp pecans
2 tbsp goji berries (optional)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp flax seeds
2 tbsp dark chocolate chips

METHOD

Keep yogurt in the freezer to cool for 10-15 mins. While then, chop your fruit into smaller pieces.

Soak the pecans into lukewarm water.

Place yogurt in bowl, top with chopped fruit, granola, chia & flax seeds, & dark chocolate chips.
