Coconut Chia Parfait with Strawberry Mango Ice Cream

By Genuine Health

Serves 2


Coconut Chia Pudding

  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup or raw honey (more if needed)

Coconut Yogurt Layer

  • 1/4 cup coconut yogurt

Strawberry Mango Ice Cream


  1. To make the chia pudding: Mix the chia seeds with vanilla and coconut milk, then add in maple syrup or honey. Stir a few times to break up any clumps of chia and let it sit for 10-15 minutes or longer for the seeds to gel and thicken. Taste test and add more sweetener if desired
  2. To make the strawberry mango ice cream: Add all ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender with a tamper and blitz until you get a smooth ice cream-like consistency. Try not to run the machine for too long, since the accumulated heat would melt the ice cream (around 20 seconds is best)
  3. To assemble: Divide half of the chia pudding between two glasses, top with a layer of coconut yogurt, the rest of the chia pudding, and finish it off with the strawberry mango ice cream. Garnish with fresh strawberries, coconut flakes, or other toppings of choice, and enjoy!
