Lemon Curd Chia Parfait
Ingredients for servings
2 lemons zest, freshly grated
0.75 cup(s) sugar
0.25 cup(s) unsalted butter softened
2 large eggs
0.25 cup(s) freshly squeezed lemon juice
1.5 cup(s) almond milk or your milk of choice
0.5 cup(s) chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
for the lemon curd
for the chia parfaits
Place the lemon zest and sugar in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is combined.
Beat the butter until creamy in your electric mixer and then beat in the sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time until combined. Beat in the lemon juice - if it looks a little curdled, that’s okay! Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and heat over low heat. Cook until thickened, stirring the whole time, about 10 minutes. Remove and let the mixture cool completely, then refrigerate it.
This will make extra lemon curd, so keep it chilled in the fridge and use it on EVERYTHING.
To make the chia pudding, whisk together the milk, chia seeds and vanilla extract in a bowl until combined. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes, then whisk again. Refrigerate for another hour (or even overnight).
To make the parfaits, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon curd on the bottle of a glass. Add about 1/3 cup of the chia pudding on top of the lemon curd. Add another dollop of lemon curd. Then go in with your toppings! Almonds, hemp hearts, frozen berries - whatever you’d like.
