A low-carb, sweet breakfast parfait with chia seeds and fresh berries – health in a glass!

Did you know?

Chia seeds were an essential food for the Aztecs and Mayans, who valued them for their ability to provide sustainable energy. 'Chia' is the ancient Mayan word for 'strength'.

Begin your day with a symphony of berry notes and the understated elegance of chia seeds in our Chia & Mixed Berry Parfait. This no-cook delight whisks you away to the sun-drenched fields where berries bask in the golden morning light, ripe and brimming with sweetness. A refreshing twist to morning rituals, it's as visually appealing as it is palate-pleasing. Delicate layers of lush, homemade berry compote and creamy coconut milk chia pudding are artfully spooned into clear glasses, creating a veritable feast for the eyes.

As you savor this healthy and sweet breakfast creation, imagine strolling through the farmers' market, the fragrance of fresh berries in the air, with each spoonful capturing the simplicity and wholesomeness of nature's bounty.


Carefully selected, these ingredients come together to form a delightful, nutritious morning treat.

Chia seeds are not only a superfood packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein, but also have a fascinating story that dates back to the Aztec and Mayan civilizations.

  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey, or to taste (substitute with a sweetener of your choice for vegan option)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 100 g fresh blueberries
  • A handful of fresh raspberries
  • Mint leaves for garnish (optional)


This easy-to-follow guide ensures you create a perfectly layered and utterly delicious breakfast parfait.

  1. In a bowl, mix the coconut milk, chia seeds, honey, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  2. Let the chia mixture sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the seeds to swell up and form a pudding-like consistency.
  3. Meanwhile, take half of the strawberries and blueberries and purée them together to create a fresh berry compote.
  4. Begin layering your parfait by spooning some of the chia pudding into the bottom of two glasses.
  5. Add a layer of berry compote over the chia pudding.
  6. Next, add a layer of sliced strawberries, whole blueberries, and raspberries.
  7. Repeat the layers until the glasses are filled to the top.
  8. Garnish with mint leaves for a refreshing touch and a pop of color.
