Okay, so besides being on a sugar scrub and chia seed craft bender I’ve been on a bit of a unicorn bender too.
There’s simply too many craft ideas to make them all.
But this one kept popping into my head, and I finally gave in and thought I’d give it a try and see how it turned out.
Often, I’ll get ideas where I’ll just cross two things together and I’ll come up with something new. This is one of those times. I love chia pudding, and I love unicorn themed anything, so I thought–
Why not make unicorn chia seed treats?
They’re great for parties, small get togethers or if you’re simply trying to get a bit artsy with your food.
Here’s how to make your chia seed parfaits.
Chia seed unicorn parfaits
- Appetizer serving cups
- Chia seeds
- Almond milk
- Agave nectar
- whipped cream
- Pink and blue sprinkles
- Pink and blue food coloring
These chia cups are pretty easy to make and can be a healthier alternative to serving sugary puddings and fudge.
Plus chia pudding is always fun to eat and can add a bit of a different flair to your party.
More unicorn crafts and ideas
I’ve got lots of unicorn crafts and printables I’ve been working on, and I’ll be sure to add more later. These are the ones you can check out so far!
As you can see I made a bit of a mess in the kitchen.
But all the fun I had creating these chia seed parfaits was worth the trouble.
I always like to say that when you come across a nifty DIY idea, you don’t need to follow it to a T. You can always add your own flair to it and it doesn’t have to turn out exactly as you see it in the picture (unless you want it to).
For example, I’ve found these gorgeous unicorn sprinkles I loved once I saw them. And I wish I would’ve used them in this DIY idea.
Guess I’ll have to keep them on the back burner for later. Oh, well!
Layering your chia seed mix
To layer your different colored chia seed puddings, you’ll want to use a small spoon to add in small spoonfuls at a time to get that layered effect.
Do this until you get to the top of your cup, but without getting too close to the brim, because then you’ll want to top your chia bites with some whipped cream and sprinkles!
