We have another holiday to celebrate today! And no, I’m not talking about Black Friday! It’s National Parfait Day!
Don’t roll your eyes at me! If you are a dedicated Black Friday shopper, then you need some fuel to get you through a full day of shopping and I have just the recipe!
I have never been a Black Friday shopper (I’ve always had to work) and after giving it a try several years ago, the crowds late morning were more than I could take. I’ll still be working this Black Friday but if any shopping happens, I can assure you it’ll be happening from the comfort of my living room and right online. I have no hate if Black Friday is your thing, but it’s not mine!
Regardless of how you’re spending the day, this Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding is a must-make!
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 can full-fat coconut cream
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 Tablespoons honey
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir and put in the fridge overnight or a few hours. When you’re ready to eat it, scoop some into a bowl and top however you’d like!
Sure, this is not your normal parfait, but it would make a great base if you wanted to alternate layers of toppings or extra coconut cream or pumpkin! Mmmm…I’m getting hungry just at the thought!
I used to eat a parfait for lunch every single day before Greek yogurt found it’s way onto the “my stomach does NOT want you to eat this” list. I would do Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and granola. It was one of my absolutely favorite lunches and to this day, I still love making versions with dairy free yogurt, fresh fruit and gluten free granola.
What are your favorite parfait toppings?
I really try to use chia seeds on as much as I can. I love pudding 🙂
Mmh, this sounds delicious! Now I am really hungry! Thanks for the recipe!
Happy Friday xxx

I’m totally the same way–I can’t stand the crowds or irate shoppers so always prefer to shop from the comfort of my couch.
This sounds amazing! Thank you so much for sharing–chia seeds are actually on my grocery list and would love to try this variation 🙂 hope you had a happy thanksgiving!

This looks delicious and hearty!
Ugh OMG I work attached to a mall and Canada always advertises Black Friday sales but it’s really a hype for nothing compared to the deals yall get south of us. I just had to make my way back from the gym through the mall and almost went postal. I can’t deal with the crazy crowds, it’s too overwhelming.
I hope you have a great weekend Katie~!
