Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I made something just for you this 4th of July weekend...umm, week? Yep, I've finally developed my very first recipe for the blog and I'm pretty excited about it! This 4th of July 3-in-1 Breakfast Parfait combines all 3 of my favorite summer breakfasts, chia seed pudding, yogurt, and a smoothie! And it's fun colors make it perfect for kicking off a day full of fun 4th of July festivities- I mean who wouldn't want a pink, white, and blue-ish purple overflowing mess of a parfait to start off the holiday?

Boy, I had no idea how much work went into photographing the process of creating a recipe! Now I know why I've only shared recipes via social media- it's so much easier to simply show the final product. The hardest part was keeping Brady away from eating ALL the fruit since my photoshoot set up currently resides on our living room floor (what can I say, it's the spot with the best lighting!). Every time I'd walk away to grab something else the lil' stinker would sneak a few strawberries and blueberries. He's really liking this new recipe development process I've got going on.

Don't you just love that nice shot of the crack in our crappy blender? It's amazing nothing leaks out of it!

4th of July 3-in-1 Breakfast Parfait

Serves 2-3

Ingredients:

Chia Seed Pudding-

1 cup milk or non-dairy alternative

1/3 cup chia seeds

1/2 cup blueberries

1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)

Smoothie-

1/4 cup frozen sliced beets

1/2 cup strawberries

1/2 overripe banana

1 cup milk or non-dairy alternative

1 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt

Directions:

The night before, prep the chia seed pudding by blending the milk or non-dairy alternative with the blueberries. 

In a mason jar, combine the blueberry milk with the chia seeds and maple syrup. Let sit overnight in the fridge to thicken. 

The next morning, prepare your smoothie by combining beets, strawberries, and banana with milk or non-dairy alternative. Blend until smooth. 

To create your parfait, layer the chia seed pudding, yogurt, and smoothie in a mason jar. You can also just dump everything in a bowl and call it good, if you don't got time for layering. It will still taste the same and I won't judge! 

Top with any extra fruit and enjoy!

Notes: Feel free to add a whole overripe banana to your smoothie rather than 1/2 to make it a bit sweeter.
