This tropical vegan parfait is filled with vibrant layers of creamy coconut yogurt, sweet mango chunks, tart acai chia seed pudding, and a tangy kiwi topping! Switch up your usual breakfast or snack with this easy to make and tasty, protein-rich treat.
Combine the chia seeds and acai juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or overnight. You'll be able to tell that the chia seed pudding is ready when all the liquid has been absorbed and the chia seeds are plump.
In a large cup, start with one layer of mango chunks as the base and then top it with 4 tbsp coconut yogurt and 4 tbsp chia seed pudding Repeat these layers and top with fresh kiwi.
If you can't find acai juice, you can use the frozen smoothie packs instead. You'll need to defrost the frozen pouch and water it down a little bit so there is enough liquid for the chia seeds to absorb. You may need to add 1 tbsp of maple syrup or date syrup to sweeten the chia seed pudding.
You can assemble the vegan parfaits 1-2 days in advance, but I recommend that you build the parfait right before you're ready to serve it for the prettiest presentation.
You can serve these parfaits in any type of cup, but if you're making these parfaits for a special occasion, it looks really pretty to use a clear glass cup so you can see the beautiful layers.
Store the leftover parfait ingredients separately in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
