Orange Creamsicle Chia Seed Parfaits — these delicious, protein-rich, light and refreshing parfaits are perfect for a healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.
I love chia seeds, they are a super food, full of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and fiber and they are so versatile. Ever since I first tried chia seeds this past January, I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting and creating recipes using chia seeds. I really enjoyed the Coconut Almond Chia Seed Pudding I made last month and thought a chai seed pudding would go nicely in a parfait.
After some experimenting in my kitchen I’m very pleased with this recipe that I’m sharing today for Orange Creamsicle Chia Seed Parfaits. I love the combination of orange and vanilla, it is a classic. And eating one of these light and refreshing parfaits takes me back to my childhood summers eating Creamsicle popsicles at my neighborhood pool.
There are only three ingredients in these delicious Orange Creamsicle Chia Seed Parfaits and they are so easy to make. All you need is an orange, some chia seeds and vanilla yogurt.
I use vanilla bean Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is a little bit thicker than regular yorgurt so it works well in parfaits, but you can use any type of vanilla yogurt that you like. These parfaits are so easy to put together and the result is so pretty.
These delicious Orange Creamsicle Chia Seed Parfaits are perfect for a healthy breakfast or snack any time of day. These pretty parfaits would also be beautiful on a brunch buffet, or would make an elegant first course or light dessert for a special Easter meal or anytime!
