Kiwi Matcha Chia Parfaits ~ Vegan


parfaits top

Happy Sunday, beautiful! Did you remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour? I do NOT like it when the time bandits steal my hour in the spring. I have to wait six whole months to get it back! Well, at least we’ll have daylight longer and that’s good for us, since we’re starting to set up our new garden. Yay! I’m even going to build my very own greenhouse. So excited for that. Stay tuned… I’ll be sharing pics of the process.

I’m on a matcha kick right now… well, still. I have found the BEST matcha tea, too. It’s from a wonderful company called I Eat Real Food. Ceremonial grade without the ceremonial price. Still a bit costly but less than others and even better in taste. It’s not bitter at all and has a beautiful emerald green color. AND (bonus!) if you use my personal coupon code at checkout, Helyn247, you’ll get 10% off! You’re welcome. 🙂 

So here’s another recipe fitting for St. Patty’s Day! Only because it’s green. I don’t think Ireland is known for kiwis or chia seeds; and certainly not for green tea. Haha! Anyway, this dessert is so simple to prepare and so elegant to behold, not to mention scrumptious to eat. I hope you’ll try it for St. Patrick’s Day or any day!

Health trails,

Helyn Signature

    This sounds so good but, I don’t drink any kind of tea except herbal. Is there a replacement for the green tea? I’m going to make this with just the vanilla chia because it sounds so refreshing. Thanks!

      Hi Teresa! You could blend half of the milk with a handful of fresh spinach for a lovely green color without compromising the vanilla flavor. Or for a twist and an additional layer of flavor, a handful or peppermint leaves. Hope this helps! xo
