Chia Parfait with Pomegranate and Almonds

Chia Parfait with Pomegranate and Almonds |

If you’re looking for the perfect holiday breakfast, look no further. This chia parfait is not only beautiful…it’s healthy! And healthy is important…especially during the holidays. Because let’s be honest, I know you may have a little cheat here and there with some sweets and dark chocolate. Am I right?!

When I first focused on “real food,” one of the first bloggers I followed was Hannah Healy from Healy Eats Real. Her website is an abundance of delicious, healthy recipes and nutrition tips. I even highlighted her Spiced Kale Scramble recipe in my Gut Superfoods guide.

And that’s why today, I’m so thrilled that the lovely Hannah has featured my Chia Parfait with Pomegranate + Almond recipe on her website!

To see the full recipe, head on over to Healy Eats Real.

This beautiful pomegranate and almond chia parfait will delight your tastebuds. It's a healthy grain-free and dairy-free alternative to regular parfaits. 


  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds


  • Mix the coconut milk, chia, maple and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Stir or whisk until well combined. Cover and place into the refrigerator. (*This is best done overnight, but can be done during the day with a minimum 4-5 hours of refrigeration).
  • Remove the chia mix from the refrigerator and dollop a few large spoonfuls between two glasses.
  • Divide the slivered almonds on top, then some pomegranate seeds.
  • Dollop the remainder of the chia mix in the glasses, followed by the rest of the pomegranate seeds.
  • Serve immediately.

  1. One serving is 665 calories. Seems high? Is this an error?

  2. This is so simple to assemble and is great on taste too. I added roasted almonds for that extra crunch. I’ve been following your recipes. And every single one has turned out great :)5 stars

    • Hi Judith- So glad to hear you’ve been enjoying all my recipes so far! Will definitely need to make more chia parfait recipes as well :)
