These Mighties Kiwi Chia Pudding Parfaits are a unique way to enjoy fresh kiwi. The combo of chia seed pudding and kiwi puree makes for a healthy breakfast or snack that’s filling and delicious.
My sister and I loved kiwi growing up. My mom would buy them for us often, but for whatever reason it still felt like a special treat — definitely more exotic than your typical apple, orange or banana. That said, I don’t remember us ever using kiwi in recipes. We always ate them as a snack, scooping the flesh from the skin with a spoon.
Kiwi are obviously still great for snacking, but I’ve realized they’re really fun to use in recipes as well. They add a delicious flavor, lovely color and nutrition to a variety of dishes. I’ve done a couple fruit salads with kiwi like this quinoa fruit salad with toasted coconut and this mixed berry fruit salad, but today I’m going outside of the box combining kiwi with one of my favorite snack recipes –> chia pudding!
The parfaits are colorful and delicious! And as a bonus, kiwi is a super-fruit — packed with nutrition that’s ideal for a pre-workout energy boost or to refuel and recover post-workout. Eating two kiwi gives you more vitamin C than an orange, more potassium than a banana and more vitamins E & K than an avocado. Woot!
Combine all the nutrients in kiwi with the health benefits of chia seeds and you’ve got one amazing little meal — perfect for breakfast or a snack.
For this recipe I teamed up with Mighties, a California based kiwi grower that focuses on making the super-fruit more approachable to consumers. Mighties arrive in the store ripe and ready to eat, taking the guesswork out of when to purchase or eat them! So if you’re looking for kiwi in the store, just look for the Mighties clamshell packaging. And definitely check out their Instagram account for fun kiwi inspiration.
I hope you love these simple parfaits as much as we do!
