Summer is definitely the best time of the year to enjoy raw breakfast every day. There’s nothing better than a bowl of refreshing chia pudding on a hot summer morning. I confess, I still eat my regular bowls of steaming oatmeal quite often (don’t judge me, oatmeal is just too good to skip) but I also love chia pudding and smoothies in the morning and this Berry Chocolate Chia Parfait is the combination of both AKA happiness in a bowl.

This is sort of an unconventional parfait as most parfaits are served in tall glasses in layers rather than in bowls. I didn’t add any granola or yogurt to this one either but feel free to add some if you want! You can try out my easy Maple Banana Granola I posted a while back and if you live in New York, top it with Anita’s coconut yogurt which I absolutely love and miss every single day (pls ship it to me to Europe I beg you).

Berries and chocolate go so well together that I tend to eat them every single day. If you’re craving even more of berry & cacao goodness, you can check out my Raw Maqui Berry Buckwheat PorridgeCherry Blueberry Oatmeal with Acai, or this delicious Blueberry Baked Oatmeal.

    Loved all the pics. If you don’t mind, would you like to share your camera setting?
    Coming back to the post, great post. Didn’t know, you can incorporate chia seeds into chocolate. Must be yum.
