Chocolate Cherry Chia Parfait

Chocolate Cherry Chia Parfait

Cherry season is coming up, and that means it’s time for some cherry creations!  I was inspired by my love of chocolate covered cherries and my regular parfait regimen to create something like this: a parfait complete with loads of cocoa, chia seeds, yogurt, and of course, a handful of granola.

It has come to my attention that this decadent jar of goodness could also be called a black forest parfait, which for some reason makes me visualize black bears eating off a cherry tree.  However, I think chocolate cherry chia parfait has a nice ring to it 🙂 Either way, its absolutely delicious and tastes insanely dessert-like.  

Despite it’s indulgent taste, it is actually quite balanced.  Full of antioxidants, protein, and energizing nutrients, you can feel great about digging in.  So, let your taste buds do a little dance and grab a big spoon!
