Pomegranate Blackberry Quinoa Parfait | MevoLife

Knowing the health benefits of quinoa, I have fallen in love with it and have been looking for various ways to incorporate this superfood into my daily diet. But before my various recipes of quinoa, I’ve only known it in savory dishes. So last night I experimented with it.

I wanted to treat myself to a delicious dessert but with very few ingredients available, I tried whipping up the best I could. And the result was this amazing looking, health-loaded parfait that has all the goodness of quinoa, fruits and yogurt, some yum jam, and crunchy chia.

Tip: It was the best every dish because I had made it with the fruits of my choice, and they included pomegranate, blackberries, and raspberries.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic blackberry pomegranate fruit spread

  • 1 tbsp. of organic chia seeds

  • 1 (6 ounce) container fresh blackberries

  • 1 (6 ounce) container fresh raspberries

  • 1 cup cooked Organic Sprouted Quinoa

  • 1 1/3 cups vanilla Greek yogurt

  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh lemon peel

  • 4 lemon slices, for garnish

Throw in nuts of your choice or any kind of fresh fruit, and it will always turn out great. It would be however important to ask your nutritionist for any advice on it.
