Chocolate Chia Parfait

October 3rd, 2012 · Lisa · raw, Recipes, Sweet, vegan mofo · Comments
I’ll be serving up awesome dishes from the menu of my imaginary vegan B&B all month long.

Welcome to Wednesday!

I hope the week is treating you well so far. Last night as I was falling asleep I was trying to decide the best way to welcome the middle of the week. Although not as maligned as Monday, Wednesday certainly doesn’t receive the affection showered upon Friday.

But come on…it is the centre – the core – of the work week. It has the longest name and can often feel like the longest duration. So…let’s make sure to start it off on the right foot. Are you with me?

Just in case you still need some convincing to join Team Wednesday…I made chocolate.

Super-powered-chia-chocolate!

Because you’re my special guest, I thought that a perfect parfait would be the best way to start your day. I picked up some of the last few local raspberries at a farmers market on Monday and saved them just for you. :)
