Berry Pomegranate Chia Parfait

Berry Pomegranate Chia Parfait

Mornings are so much better when you have a cute and delicious parfait to enjoy – starting your day fresh with a vibrant and healthy jar of goodness just feels so good.

With plenty of textures to enjoy, this berry pomegranate chia parfait is so easy, so balanced, and super energizing!  It’s one of my favorite creations, and it’s the perfect fall treat when the ingredients are in season!  The berries, pomegranate seeds, apples, and cinnamon complement each other so well to create a surprisingly delicious flavor combination.  It’s the perfect balance of sweet, fruity, and tart.

You can totally chill the parfait in the fridge overnight for a quick grab-and-go breakfast (thank goodness for mason jars!) but it is also amazing served warm.  Feel free to adjust the amount of honey and cinnamon used to fit your tastes.  I personally like just a little honey and a lot of cinnamon.  It turns out great with unsweetened vanilla almond milk in the chia seed pudding (my personal favorite), but any type of milk can be used in the recipe.
