Ingredients

For the granola:

  • One batch of Andy’s Fairfield Granola (link to recipe in notes) Note: This will make way more than you actually need, but it’s a great snack to have on hand!

For the stewed strawberries:

  • 1 ½ pounds strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto

For the chia pudding:

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla coconut beverage
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tablespoons honey I prefer Heavenly Organics Acacia Honey

Instructions

  • First, prepare the granola according to the recipe (link in notes). Cool and store in an airtight container or resealable bag until ready to use.
  • The night before, prep the stewed strawberries and chia pudding. For the strawberries, combine all ingredients (strawberries, sugar and amaretto) in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until strawberries have released their juices and turned slightly syrupy. Remove from heat and let cool. Once strawberries are mostly cool, place in an airtight container in the refrigerator overnight.
  • For the chia pudding, whisk together the chia seeds, coconut beverage, vanilla and honey. Let mixture sit for about 10 minutes and then whisk again, breaking up any clumps. Place in another airtight container in the refrigerator. Let sit overnight.
  • In the morning, remove chia pudding from refrigerator and stir one more time. Let sit for 10-20 minutes after stirring to let it really set up nicely. Once pudding is set, distribute it evenly among four serving vessels (this could change depending on what size “vessels” you are using; I used stemless wine glasses.)
  • Remove the strawberries from the refrigerator and spoon on top of the pudding in the individual glasses. Next, sprinkle on a generous serving of granola (I’d say ¼ - 1/3 of a cup, depending on how indulgent you want to be.) Top with a little drizzle of honey, if desired.

Notes

  1. You can find the recipe for Andy's Fairfield Granola here.
  2. These chia pudding parfaits were delicious on the first morning, but got even better by the second morning. Simply wait to add the granola until right before you're ready to eat so it doesn't get soggy.
