Chia seeds are one health trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. And for good reason: Packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, potassium, and antioxidants, they're a great way to add texture to foods like smoothies and oatmeal while benefitting your body at the same time.

Take, for instance, this pretty chia parfait from healthy food blogger Chrissa Benson that proves breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. Pineapple juice, light coconut milk, honey, and chia seeds come together to form the chia pudding which is then layered with toasted coconut flakes and fresh pineapple.

“With summer approaching, I wanted to create something reminiscent of a pina colada (my favorite tropical cocktail) but with a healthy twist,” says Benson. Her advice: Don’t skip toasting the coconut. “It brings out such depth in flavor, it’s really worth the extra step,” she says.
