Berry Soft Serve & Vanilla Chia Pudding Parfait

Sweet vanilla chia pudding is layered with a refreshingly tart berry soft serve. The recipe makes enough for two parfaits, so be sure to have a friend nearby so that you can share the goodness.

Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Servings: 2


Vanilla Chia Pudding

  • 1 ¼ cups unsweetened plant milk
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Berry Soft Serve

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 to 2 medjool dates, pitted (optional to sweeten)

Topping Ideas

  • coconut flakes
  • sliced strawberries
  • blueberries


Vanilla Chia Pudding

  • Vigorously whisk the plant milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla together in an airtight jar or container until the chia seeds are distributed throughout the liquid. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight to thicken.
  • In the morning, vigorously whisk the chia pudding. If it's too thin, add in more chia seeds, 1 tablespoon at a time, to thicken. If it's too thick, add in more plant milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, to thin.

Berry Soft Serve

  • Make the soft serve just before serving. Add the frozen strawberries, blueberries, and dates (if using) to a food processor and process until smooth with a sorbet-like texture, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. You might need to add in a very small amount of plant milk to get it moving. I recommend adding 1 tablespoon at a time and adding as little as possible to maintain a thick, soft-serve texture.


  • In two jars or parfait glasses, layer the chia pudding and berry soft serve, one after the other. Sprinkle with desired toppings and serve immediately.
