Independence Day is here, meaning it’s time to enjoy delicious foods and partake in festivities that celebrate freedom. For brides and grooms-to-be looking for a healthy snack appropriate for these hot midsummer days, we’ve created a colorful parfait made of Greek yogurt, Chia seeds, and assorted berries.

Chia seeds are an easy and healthy addition to many plates. They’re a good source of omega-3 acids, antioxidants, fibre, calcium, and protein.

Ingredients:
•   2 cups of Greek yogurt (We chose to use vanilla flavored.)
•   1/8 cup of Chia seeds
•   2/3 cup of light cream
•   A couple dashes of cinnamon
Directions:
1)  Mix the Greek yogurt with the Chia seeds, light cream, and cinnamon.
2)  Place the bowl in the fridge to keep the yogurt cool and to let the Chia seeds soak up the moisture from the yogurt and the cream.
3)  After 20-30 minutes, take the yogurt and layer it into a dish with blueberries and strawberries for a festive appeal and yummy combination.
