Kiwi + Chia Green Protein Parfait – Dairy Free

Here is another recipe for you from the book Green Kitchen Smoothies. I have fallen in love with this book and so know you will love this recipe. Now, I have modified this one to suit my own needs. I’ve made it with less carbs + higher in protein with some added acidophilus for gut health. This is a very filling breakfast and the perfect serving for two. So if you are feeding your little ones, double the quantities. What a perfect way to increase colour in your food (colour = nutrition). I try and aim for at least 13 different colours per day….how do you go with this?

Here it is..

Serves 2

Time: 15 mins

Chia Pudding

*I double the chia recipe (I make two batches) but I take out the protein powder for my husbands lot, as he doesn’t like the taste of the raw protein powder. Woos.

250ml Almond milk

3 Tbns Chia seeds

2 spoonfuls of Organic Stevia Powder

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Pinch of sea salt

1 Serving of plant based protein powder (I like Amazonian) but use what you have on hand

1/4 teaspoon acidophilus powder (or powder from capsule)

Place ingredients into a bowl and mix. Divide a half into two glasses and allow to set


1 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced (set a few slices a side for the glass)

1/4 of a ripe organic avocado

1/2 large organic banana

1 handful of organic oak lettuce or baby spinach but limit spinach if you have Thyroid issues

125ml water and a dash of almond milk

1/2 juice of a lemon or lime

A few cubes of ice to cool the smoothie


Place all ingredients into a blender and pour over your chia pudding. I hold a piece of kiwi as you pour on the side of the glass to make it look like the books picture..nice + stuck up…in a good way of course.

To serve

Frozen berries

Fresh Passion fruit pulp

Nut butter to top

Buckwheat groats, raw if on hand
