A quick and easy recipe that is perfect for your 4th of July celebration, a Berry Protein Parfait!

Have some chia seeds on hand? These from the Vitamin Shoppe happen to be white chia seeds, and in a True Athlete vanilla whey protein shake, they make the perfect white layer for your Berry Protein Parfait! (Update: the white chia seeds seemed to have been discontinued, so I reset the link to their current chia seed product.)

Did you know… the True Athlete line of products is not only hormone-free, but it is NSF Certified for Sport. A natural, safe, and healthy whey protein powder that is creamy and delicious!


This Berry Protein Parfait would make a great breakfast, snack, or dessert. Give it a try!

Total time: 
Makes 2 parfaits.
  1. Mix the water and vanilla whey until smooth.
  2. Put the chia seeds in a small bowl, and pour the protein shake over them. Stir well.
  3. Let the chia mix sit for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. If you can, stir about every 10 minutes so the chia seeds don't clump up.
  4. Once the chia pudding is ready, spoon some into each of two serving cups, then top with strawberries.
  5. Spoon the remaining chia pudding into the cups, and top with blueberries.
  6. Enjoy!
A note about substitutions: You can substitute vanilla casein protein powder for the whey, but you may need a little more water. I would not use vegan protein powders in this recipe because they would give a chalky consistency to the pudding.
