Today I’m sharing a healthy and delicious Berry Chia Smoothie Parfait recipe. It’s vegan and dairy-free. It also possesses a wonderful texture thanks to the chia pudding combined with the smoothie. In addition, it’s packed with fibre and protein due to chia seeds and flax meal. Chia seeds are an incredible source of nutrition. I’ve listed some of the health benefits below:
HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHIA SEEDS
1 ounce of chia seeds contains 11 grams of fibre! That’s a lot of fibre.
They are rich in antioxidants, which prevent free-radical production. Free-radicals are responsible for damaging cells, aging and cancer
Chia seeds are loaded with protein. They are a weight-loss friendly type of protein unlike meat
They contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon!
They have shown to reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure
Chia seeds are dense in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and protein. In fact, they contain more bone-building nutrients than dairy!

This recipe is great for breakfast if you prepare the chia pudding overnight before you go to bed. You can make the smoothie in the morning.
