Mason jar breakfasts may be my favourite thing. I’m always that girl at work, toting around my mason jar breakfast and my mason jar smoothie. #Basic much?
But seriously. Mason jars are so cute and fun and therefore mason jar breakfasts are in my permanent rotation. My absolute favs:
Today I’m comin ‘atcha with another mason jar breakfast: Strawberry Chia Pudding Parfait. This breakfast is similar to a yogurt and granola breakfast, but it’s dairy-free and so much healthier! Layers of thick Greek-style Vanilla Chia Pudding are layered with pureed strawberry and banana, all topped with fresh strawberry slices (and crunchy granola if you like!)
I’ve just had the most lovely soul-reviving weekend. J was out of town and I was left with two glorious days with absolutely nothing on my calendar. It’s been a long time since I had a weekend so open! I did the perfect amount of errands and cooking and relaxing and am now approaching this week feeling rejuvenated.
On Saturday I knew I wanted to get an early start on some errands, and so I’d set Cherry Coconut Chia Pudding in my fridge the night before. Cherries and toasted coconut pair so lovely together, they were perfect additions to this chia pudding. I’m working through a giant basket of the first local cherries of the season – I just can’t get enough!
Chia, chia the magical seed. I’ve already talked about how much I love chia in Overnight Oats, and now we have this magical Vanilla Chia Pudding.
Why is it so magical, you ask? A sprinkling of chia seeds mixed with milk and thrown in the fridge overnight turns into a rich, thick pudding that is a great substitute for your morning yogurt. And, chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for brain health.
Sounds like it one-ups yogurt, wouldn’t you say?! 😉
