Acai Chia Parfait

Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal… the meme that says “sleep is a time machine to breakfast” is toooo real. To make the mornings less fussy and to avoid taking out a million things from my pantry and fridge before heading to work, I pre-freeze my smoothie & nice cream add-ins in an ice tray. The acai cubes I used for this recipe are a mixture of acai powder, greek yogurt and almond milk frozen into an ice tray. In the morning, I just pop them out and throw them into the food processor with a frozen banana & done.

1. Night before - Mix up all of the chia pudding ingredients in a mason jar ... shake it really well. Refrigerate over night. 
2. In the morning - Blend all of the acai nice cream ingredients in a food processor or a powerful blender until smooth. (you may have to scrape the sides a few times & wait for the bananas to thaw a bit)
