• 1/4 cup chia seeds
• 1 cup coconut milk (full-fat)
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup fresh raspberries
• 2 tablespoons shredded coconut (optional, for garnish)
• Fresh mint leaves (for garnish)
HOW TO MAKE IT
In a bowl, combine the chia seeds, coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk well to ensure the chia seeds are evenly distributed.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and form a pudding-like consistency.
Once the chia pudding has set, give it a good stir to break up any clumps and ensure a smooth texture.
In serving glasses or jars, layer the chia pudding and fresh raspberries alternately. Start with a layer of chia pudding at the bottom, then add a layer of raspberries. Repeat until the glasses are filled.
Garnish the parfaits with shredded coconut and fresh mint leaves for added texture and freshness.
Refrigerate the Raspberry Coconut Chia Pudding Parfait for an additional 30 minutes to chill before serving.
Serve the parfaits chilled and enjoy the creamy and fruity goodness of this delightful vegan dessert.
