Kiwi Chia Pudding Parfait

These Mighty Kiwi Chia Pudding Parfaits are a novel way to eat fresh kiwi. Chia seed pudding and kiwi puree combine to provide a nutritious and tasty breakfast or snack. 

Growing up, my sister and I adored kiwi. My mother would buy them for us frequently, but for some reason, they felt like a special treat — certainly more exotic than your normal apple, orange, or banana. 

However, I don't recall us ever utilizing kiwi in recipes. We used to eat them as a snack, scooping the flesh from the skin with a spoon.

Kiwi are still fantastic for snacking, but I've discovered that they may also be used in cooking. They enhance the flavor, color, and nutritional value of many foods.  

My mixed berry fruit salad includes kiwi, but today I'm taking a different approach and combining it with one of my favorite snack recipes: chia pudding!

The parfaits are bright and delicious! As an added benefit, kiwi is a superfruit, rich with nutrients that are great for a pre-workout energy boost or refueling and recovery post-workout.

Two kiwi provide more vitamin C than an orange, more potassium than a banana, and more vitamins E and K than an avocado. 

When you combine the nutrients in kiwi with the health benefits of chia seeds, you get one great little meal that's ideal for breakfast or a snack.
