Strawberry Rhubarb & Yogurt Chia Parfait
This surprisingly simple and elegant parfait is made with only 6 ingredients and no added sugar. The compote is made from strawberry, rhubarb, dates and vanilla only. Add a layer of plain yogurt and chia pudding to make this 6-ingredient healthy treat.
- 2 cups yogurt (plain Greek, regular or vegan)
- 1 cup milk (cow's, almond, cashew, soy or coconut)
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
Strawberry Rhubarb Compote
- 1 cup rhubarb, chopped (frozen or fresh)
- 1 cup strawberries (frozen or fresh)
- 4 tablespoons water
- 6 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a small container, whisk together chia seeds and milk. Let soak in the fridge overnight.
Prepare the compote: In a small saucepan, add rhubarb, strawberries, dates, water and vanilla. Bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer for 10 minutes over low/medium heat until the rhubarb softens. Mash with a fork. Let cool (the compote will continue to thicken as it cools).
Prepare the parfaits: In a small jar, add approximately 1/4 cup of strawberry compote (cooled), 1/2 cup of yogurt and 1/2 cup of chia pudding. Enjoy!
I like to prepare a large batch of compote and chia pudding on the weekend to keep in the fridge. Then make the parfaits and use as snacks throughout the week.
Feel free to change the compote, yogurt and chia pudding ratio to your liking.
Add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter parfait.
Use leftover rhubarb in oatmeal, on toasts or as preferred.
