Chocolate Coffee Chia Seed Parfait Caras Kitchen

Dessert? Nah this is breakfast and its damn delicious. Adding cold brew coffee to chia pudding might be the best. thing. ever. After making chia seed pudding for years with almond milk a light bulb went off in my brain that maybe I should try mixing it with coffee and see how that goes. Turns out its awesome. lol.

Dont let the look of this decadent smoothie/parfait/chia pudding fool you. It is packed full of vital nutrients so you can feel your body livin. I used Nutiva Organic Plant Protein Superfood Powder in the smoothie part and the ingredients are very nutritious. i.e. reishi, shitake, moringa, sea buckthorn, kelp, chard, kale, beet and more. Best part is it tastes great.

You get a protien/healthy fat/caffiene kick all in one. Go make this!
