You might have noticed by now that I love breakfast, and I also love dessert. So I combined these two into one delicious breakfast that combines the best of

winter flavors.

I started with a pretty basic chia pudding: I combined low-fat milk (you can also use an alternative milk, such as unsweetened almond milk) with chia seeds and vanilla extract. I let the mixture plump up in the fridge for about an hour before taking it to the next level.

 

I then layered the chia pudding with pomegranate arils, as you'd do with a yogurt parfait. I topped my creation with crushed pistachios just before serving; the pomegranate arils and pistachios add a wonderful crunch!

While I had this for breakfast, it also makes a great dessert or snack

(have a half serving).
