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. By the way, if you're curious about the effects of skipping breakfast, I highly recommend not doing this and making sure to fit in a balanced breakfast into your morning!

To make this breakfast recipe, 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).

The chia seeds, pomegranates, and pistachios together provide an excellent amount of fiberbringing this recipe to a grand total of 15 grams, or 60 percent of a your daily need. The pistachio chia pudding is also rich in protein, providing 14 grams, or 28 percent of the daily value.
