Chia pudding & granola parfait


Don't you just love quick and yummy breakfast especially when it's bursting with bright colours in a jar?

Meet my Chia pudding and granola parfait with mangoes and poms!

It's creamy, healthy, perfectly sweet and crunchy from the addition of granola. Mangoes and chia coconut pudding is a match made in heaven and come granola and poms in the picture, it tastes even more delicious!!

Speaking of mangoes, monsoon has almost hit Mumbai and I am not ready yet to bid goodbye to Alphonso untill next season! Making the most of them and having them literally everyday in some form or other as Mango Colada smoothie bowl, Mango chilli lemonade, Mango and cream cheese ice-cream and Mango salad with mango-mint dressing!



Parfait is a layered dessert made with cream and fruits but getting more popular now as a breakfast item. Breakfast parfait is made by layering healthy ingredients like yogurt, granola and fruits together.

Extremely easy to make with few ingredients, this parfait shines bright as a dessert too. Its healthy and super-light, perfect finish to a meal. I just love how balanced this parfait is, creamy and crunchy with freshness of fruits. Lemon juice cuts through all the natural sweetness and makes it even more delicious! You must try it at the next party you host!


I have used my homemade Instant stove-top granola in this recipe which I have been having pretty much everyday either for breakfast with milk/yogurt or as a snack. Not only is it addictive with goodness of walnuts, black raisins and pumpkin seeds, it also has tons of fibre in the form of oats.

If you are into healthy breakfast then you are gonna love this parfait. Vegan Peach breakfast bowl, Vegan Chocolate and Banana chia pudding and Egg-less whole wheat chocolate pancakes are also some of my favourites from the blog!
