Peaches ‘n Cream Oat & Chia Pudding Parfait

overnight oats, chia pudding, chobani peach, greek yogurt recipes

If folks at Chobani are looking for a male poster child to relay the fact that Real Men Eat Greek Yogurt, my handsome hubby would be just the guy for the job. I’m pretty sure not a day goes by that he doesn’t carry one of these babies to work for his mid-morning snack. (And as of the past few months, always with chia seeds. Because don’t you know Real Men Eat Chia Seeds too.)

You see those tubs below? Those are not the little snack-sized, fruit-on-the-bottom ones you’re used to. These are 16oz tubs of blended Chobani. No stirring necessary. Got it?

While I love me some yogurt too, I try to leave my dairy intake in moderation. Just personal preferences. But even so, I had no qualms about accepting 6lbs of yogurt from the sweet people at Chobani. Whatever I didn’t eat, my Real Man would.

Trust me when I say I had to work quickly to get my (itsy bitsy) share of the yogurt. Just so you know, the blueberry is awesome in my simple protein pancakes (just egg + yogurt + protein powder, pretty much) and the chocolate chunk – you had better have some bananas in the freezer to blend it into cool creamy dessert perfection.

But the star for me was this peachy keen puddin’ parfait. Where is the pudding, you ask? Well, pudding is what happens when you mix together yogurt, oats, chia and a splash of milk and let it sit for a couple hours in the fridge. And then, as a reward for your patience, you get to eat this sweet, indulgent (but protein-and-omega-3-packed) concoction for breakfast.

So what are you waiting for? Go. Make it now. Then wait a bit. I promise it’ll be worth it.

    I love chobani’s flavored yogurts! Can’t believe I’ve never encountered the chocolate before…I need to seek it out. And I need to make this parfait…it would be so much healthier to stress eat than some of the other things I’ve been nibbling on.

    This looks amazing. I was obsessed with chia puddings for a while a few months back, and then I stopped. Haven’t made one in a while but you’ve inspired me. I’ve never done oats and chia together, I can’t wait to try it.

    Hi Cara, I like the idea of chia seeds and intellectually know the benefits but it is still an acquired taste for me. Maybe first I will use it in baking.

    I made this without the oatmeal. I am even sensitive to oatmeal. I like how it thickened overnight. Great idea. Will do it often as my breakfast. Very easy to prepare and high in protein. Thanks!

    Hey girl. Your site looks fantastic. It’s been a while. Anyhoo, I am doing a round up of gluten free breakfast ideas for Alison at Ingredients, Inc, because she has a lot going on these days. Mind if I include this (just pics and recipe, of course!).
