Preparation

Step 1

  1. Start with the chia pudding. In a bowl or mason jar, combine chia seeds and almond milk.
  2. Once the mixture is well combined, let it sit for 5 minutes, give it another stir to break up any clumps of chia seeds, cover and put the mixture in the fridge to set up for 1-2 hours (or overnight).
  3. Arrange banana chunks in a single layer in a glass container or freezer bag.
  4. Freeze for 2 hours (or overnight, if you like).

Step 2

  1. Next we are going to create the "ice cream" part. Place all ice cream ingredients (bananas, pinapple, mango, lemon juice and spirulina) in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy (think soft-serve texture).
  2. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender, as needed.

Step 3

  1. Finally, we are going to assemble our parfait. Divide the chia pudding between two glasses and top with a layer of the fruit ice cream.
  2. Garnish with fresh berries, lemon zest, or other toppings of choice, and enjoy!
