Sometimes as a mom, I get stuck in a rut making the same things for my family. You may think, “you’re a food blogger, you must make amazing meals all the time.” To which I would reply is exactly why I don’t always feel like getting creative in the kitchen. I exhaust my mental capacities brainstorming ideas for the blog that when it comes down to cooking dinner, it’s easier just go with what I know!
I came to the conclusion that I don’t necessarily have to reinvent the wheel each time I make something for my family, I can easily change it up by modifying what I already do. I’m impressed my tired brain thought of that, haha!
Chia pudding has always been a great go-to snack to keep in the fridge. Instead of the typical chocolate and vanilla variations that usually grace the refrigerator shelf, I created this fun and healthy rainbow version to surprise the kids!
Little do they know each pudding is full of wholesome, antioxidant-rich ingredients! We know chia seeds are rich in fiber, protein, omega-3’s, and more, but each color also contains nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables, like blueberries, raspberries, mango, spinach, and kiwi.
It really doesn’t take long to blend each color up either. If you stick to basic color theory (thank you fine arts degree!) you can blend each color up from light to dark and not even have to rinse out the blender! It literally took less than 20 minutes to blend up each color, stir in the chia seeds and pop them in the fridge. Then the chia seeds expand and do the rest of the work. 🙂
This parfait is really the perfect treat to brighten up your day! Please tag me in your pics on social media too! I love seeing your creations!Print
