In the heat of summer, this rainbow of raspberry-lemon, high protein goodness satisfies on every level. It’s a raw, vegan, refreshing, delicious plant-based dessert that’s healthy enough to provide a solid breakfast for an athlete or replenishing snack. In fact, we think you’ll be shocked to see the nutrition profile of this vegan snack. We were!
The bottom layer is a raspberry infused chia pudding that you top with creamy, vegan lemon pudding. It’s tart, slightly sweet, and filling. You could garnish it with toasted coconut and lemon zest, or fresh berries.

The vibrant colors come from two plant-based powders:
Either layer is a delight on its own, swirled together, or layered. We recently made Orion a fruit pizza for his 6th birthday. The lemon custard was our sauce! We’ll get that recipe to you soon too!
Chia seeds should be soaked for at least 30 minutes to absorb the raspberry flavors and remove the natural digestive inhibitors so you can enjoy all the nutritional benefits of the seeds. Chia seeds absorb 12 times their weight in liquid!
You can serve this vegan parfait in a fancy glass or pint jars that you store in the refrigerator for tomorrow’s breakfast or snack.

Putting it all together

You can find the full analysis at the bottom of this page. All this nourishment in one beautiful vegan parfait!
