Directions


Chia Pudding Base
In a small/medium mixing bowl, add in all ingredients and mix vigorously for 1-2 minutes to break up any clumping. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes and mix one last time to break up any clumping that has formed. Let the mix sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour before enjoying.


Smoothie Base
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until everything is smooth for about 60-90 seconds. If the mix is too thick, add in more water. 


Parfait
In a 12 or 16oz glass, add in ¾ cup chia pudding for the bottom layer. Next, add in ¼ cup gr8nola and then add in 1 cup smoothie. Top with a light layer of chia pudding and 1 tbsp of gr8nola, a few blueberries, dragon fruit and edible flowers. Enjoy!
