Another very quick, easy and yummy vegan breakfast, chia coconut parfait is basically a fancy way of saying yoghurt with granola! Layers of chia seeds in coconut yoghurt and granola topped with blueberries, rasberries, another sprinkle of granola and just for fun, some Spring flowers. Nothing says Spring more than wild flowers and I couldn’t resist picking a few while walking with Bertie along the river this morning.
As I spooned this delish in my mouth, savouring the different textures of each layer I could feel the flowers blossoming inside my tummy with each bite (don’t worry I didn’t actually eat them!). Soft coconut yoghurt with little jelly chia beads, crunchy nola and bursts of berries. So good and so full of goodness! And…
It comes with the Bertie seal of approval.
I have used home made granola (links below) which is also quick and easy to prepare and great to have a stash of. I do recommend having a go at making your own, you’ll be surprised how easy it is and you’ll have delicious granola with no nasty additives and you can control the amount of sweetener you use. That said you can of course use the store bought kind if you prefer!

Oil free healthy Coconut Granola recipe.
Chia Coconut Parfait
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 200 g coconut yoghurt I use Alpro
- a big handful granola
- a handful blueberries and raspberries
Mix the chia seeds into the yoghurt, stir it up well and then put in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to let the seeds absorb the yoghurt.
Take the yoghurt & chia seeds out of the fridge and put a layer into the bottom of a glass or jar.
Add a layer of granola, don't skimp on the nola!
Top with more yoghurt and then heap with the berries and a little sprinkle of granola.
Dig in and enjoy!
