Romance of pink chia pudding, berries and coconut yogurt crowned with pitaya heart makes a perfect festive breakfast.
Dipping my breakfast spoon slowly and carefully into the fluffy, light, yet oh so creamy dairy-free parfait, I have a light bulb moment as to the name of this delicious creation. Deriving from the French word ‘parfait’ meaning ‘perfect’, this dish really is!
The playful, cheery pink and purple berries remind me of a stunning morning sky rising over Bondi Beach, and the snow white velvety goodness from the heavenly coconut cream makes for an all round mouth-watering experience!

As a vegan, people are constantly asking me if I’m certain that I have enough protein and omegas in my diet. I’m sure some, if not all of you lovely vegan readers can relate to this question! Chia seeds have become one of society’s most well-known superfoods and are a great way to boost the nutrition content of any dish! In my pink chia pudding berry parfait I know that the chia seeds will not only add a smooth and tasty element but add protein, fiber, omegas, fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants to my breakfast, leaving me feeling fuller for longer and providing my body with so much goodness! Your body will thank you too, just wait and see!
