layered acai chia pudding

I’m a big fan of chia pudding, but sometimes, a plain chia pudding just doesn’t do it for me.
One of my new favourite ways to eat chia pudding is combining it in layers with a smoothie into a parfait! I love the combination of flavours and textures you get as you dig your spoon into each layer.
I’m not sure what to call it exactly…it’s some sort of hybrid between a chia pudding, and a smoothie…a choothie? I don’t know, I guess I’ll have to work on that one.

The bottom of this layered acai chia pudding is packed with acai berry powder for an extra antioxidant punch!
If you don’t have any acai, you can simply omit it from this recipe, or add any other superfood powder you have on hand. (blueberry powder would work great!)
You can also mix fresh fruit in with the chia pudding if you like too. A 1/2 cup of mashed blueberries or raspberries would be delicious!

A delicious chia pudding made with layers of acai chia and berry smoothie



Layer 1:

Layer 2:

  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries

  4. Next, in a blender, blend all ingredients in layer 2. Carefully pour into your cup on top of the chia pudding.
  5. Garnish with some fresh fruits, and enjoy!
