    for the lemon curd

  • 0.75 cup(s) sugar

  • 0.25 cup(s) unsalted butter softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 0.25 cup(s) freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • for the chia parfaits

  • 1.5 cup(s) almond milk or your milk of choice

  • 0.5 cup(s) chia seeds

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • for topping

  • sliced almonds

  • hemp hearts

  • frozen blueberries


    Lemon Curd

  • 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.

  • Chia Parfaits

  • 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.
