Dragon Fruit & Chia Pudding Parfait

This must be the prettiest parfait I have ever seen!



This parfait is layered with a dragon fruit smoothie, chia pudding, and Greek style yogurt.


This parfait makes me happy for so many reasons. It's an easy recipe. It's quick to assemble. And it's so pretty. It's a great option to share with your children because the colors are so inviting. There's a hint of sweetness without it being overly sweet.


Benefits of Dragon fruit

  • High in Antioxidants

  • High in Fiber

  • Contains Pre-biotics



Dragon fruit flesh can be found in it's signature pink, white, or yellow. I look for that signature pink flesh dragon fruit often and it's harder to find in my area than the white and yellow flesh dragon fruits. The yellow flesh dragon fruit can be identified by looking at the yellow outside layer. But the pink and white flesh dragon fruit both have pink outside layers so be careful when picking out your dragon fruit if you are looking for a specific color. I've found that they both taste the same so it shouldn't affect the flavor if you grab the wrong one.


Watch the video below to see how easy this recipe come together and to also see how to cut a dragon fruit.



Frozen dragon fruit also known as pitaya can be found in the frozen fruit section now. This makes it much easier to try dragon fruit, and you can make this parfait as often as you like.


This parfait is good for breakfast, lunch, or a high protein snack. It's quick and easy to put together. In my house there's always some chia seeds and chia pudding around so this comes together really quickly.
