Something really awesome happened the other day. Blackberry cheesecake chia parfaits. Yesss. This recipe is a spinoff of this cheesecake recipe that I posted the other day and honestly, I don’t know which is better. My advice is to make them both, eat them both, and very soon you’ll love them both. It’ll be a beautiful thing.
Chia pudding is one of those things that I love but don’t eat very often. Then when I do eat it again I’m always questioning why I don’t have it more often. It is so so easy to make, packed full of all kinds of good things like Omega-3’s and antioxidants, and so filling as well. If you pair the chia goodness with fresh blackberries and some blackberry cheesecake then you have yourself a quick and nutritious snack that’ll keep you happy for hours to come!
