Cherry Chia Breakfast Parfaits

Super delicious Cherry Chia Pudding, topped with overnight Oats.

These Cherry Chia puddings are a true treat, easy to make and very nutritious. Protein packed chia seeds mixed with Cherries form the jam like base for these overnight oats. The oats are full of fibre and will keep you going until lunch.

Ingredients for 2:

  • 2 tbsp. Chia seeds
  • 1 C. pitted Cherries + 1/4 C. water
  • 2 tbsp. Agave
  • 1/2 C. Oats
  • 1 1/2 C. milk of choice
  • 1 vanilla bean, cut in half lengthwise and seeds scraped out

INSTRUCTIONS:

Chia Cherry mix;

The night before puree the Cherries with the water and 1 tablespoon of the Agave syrup in a blender until smooth. Add the Chia seeds. Mix well. Put in a container and store in fridge until morning.

Vanilla Oats;

Mix the oats with the milk, the remaining tablespoon of Agave and the vanilla bean scrapings. Put in a container and store in fridge until morning.

The next morning put out two pretty glasses and divide the Cherry Chia pudding amongst them. If the Chia pudding has become too stiff add a little more water and mix.

Top with the overnight Oats.

To finish off the parfait add more Cherries on top. Serve straight away.

Enjoy!

Black Forest overnight Oats

it’s like having dessert for breakfast…

This is a breakfast for when you feel like indulging, very chocolatey and creamy with a bit of tanginess from the Cherries. Basically it’s dessert for breakfast. For a quick version use yoghurt instead of oats.

Ingredients for the Oats:

  • 3/4 C. milk of choice
  • 1/4 C. Oats
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp.  Maple syrup, Honey or Agave

Put all the ingredients in a Mason Jar or glass and stir to combine, leave overnight in the fridge.

The next morning, blend the Oats until you have a smooth oat cream.

You can warm it up slowly in a heavy bottomed pan or in the microwave, or leave it cold. Both is delicious.

For the Cherry sauce;

  • 1/2 C. Cherries, pitted and cut in half
  • 1/4 tsp. Arrowroot
  • 1 tsp. Maple syrup, Honey or Agave
  • 1 tbsp. Water

Mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook until thickened, for just a few minutes. Add a little more water if necessary to get the right consistency.

For the Chocolate Shavings:

1 4 oz. Dark Chocolate bar 70%

Take one whole Chocolate bar, unwrap and put it on a piece of baking paper. Microwave on high for 40 to 50 seconds.

Shave curls slowly using a cheese slicer. Hold the chocolate steady with one hand and with the other shave, slowly. Put the chocolate curls on another piece of baking paper. You don’t have to use all the chocolate, just as much as you are going to be using.

To assemble:

Take a pretty glass and start with a layer of Oats, then spoon over half the Cherry sauce. Sprinkle with Chocolate shavings. Repeat. Finish with the Chocolate shavings. When you use warm Oats, the chocolate will slowly melt thru the Oats and cherries.

Enjoy!
