I realize that we have shared a couple of quick parfaits here before but it is quite nice to have a few different desserts to choose between when late nights cravings set in. Our Apple Crunch Parfait seems to have become quite popular (not only in our house) and this new parfait is just as good. Easily explained, it’s a chai spiced chocolate chia pudding topped with a lush and creamy raspberry mousse made from only 3 ingredients! It’s one of those happy coincidences when a really simple recipe also turns out to be deliciously addictive. I could eat the mousse with a spoon straight from the food processor (and I do when David isn’t watching) but turning it into a parfait feels a little classier. This is usually served a sweet snack or simple dessert in our family but I guess it could be a pretty awesome breakfast as well.
We claim that this is an easy one to make. As a matter of fact, it is so simple that even Isac, our 18-months old toddler, can make it (well kind of). Just press play on this little video below and you’ll see for yourselves!
Chia pudding is one of Isac’s newest obsessions. I can’t believe his shirt looks so clean on these photos as he normally pour those belly seeds all over himself in an attempt to gobble a full glass in less than five seconds. He’s a real speed eating little monkey.
