This parfait calls for a thick smoothie base layer with a simple chia seed pudding next, and then fresh fruit to top it off. Use this recipe with mangos, lime, and cardamom as inspiration to learn the simple art of parfait making and then come up with your own unique gorgeous creations in a jar. The possibilities are endless!

METHOD

Prepare the chia seed pudding in advance: Pour all ingredients into a bowl. Stir until well combined. Allow to sit for 30 minutes whisking every 10 minutes until mixture thickens. Place in refrigerator and store for several hours or overnight.

Blend the smoothie ingredients until it resembles a soft serve consistency. Scrape down the sides of the blender if need be and add a drop more liquid to create a smooth texture if necessary. It should be thick. Once smooth, pour the mango mixture into two wide mouth mason jars or glasses. Add the prepared chia seed pudding as the next layer and then top with fresh fruit or any other nutritional boost. Enjoy!
