Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait with Mountain High Yoghurt



During my recent Las Vegas trip, I got to taste the Chia Seed Parfait at the Giada and I really loved it! The moment I tasted it, I knew I wanted to replicate it so that I can enjoy something similar at home. So here’s my not-a-celebrity-chef-just-a-normal-person version of that parfait.

Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait with Mountain High Yoghurt

For this Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait recipe, I used Mountain High Low Fat Vanilla Yoghurt.

Mountain High provides versatile, wholesome and yoghurt at a great price that both your palate and your wallet will love. Mountain High started making yoghurt in 1976 using a traditional European method fondly renamed “Cultured in the Cup” — a method still in use today. The milk and cultures are mixed together and put into the same cups that are shipped to the store later. The cups sit in a warm room for several hours while the cultures work their magic: thickening the yoghurt and giving it its distinct creaminess and tang.

Since Mountain High uses only cultures to thicken our yoghurt, there is no need to add any gelatin or funny stuff. And it’s not just any milk they use either. Because they want the milk to taste perfect, they look for farms where they never treat the cows with growth hormones. All Mountain High products are made with just a few simple ingredients, and all of this simplicity makes Mountain High awesome!

  1. I have been searching for a good parfait recipe that utilizes Almond milk. Never had chia seeds before. Could this also be used with flax seeds?

  2. I have never tried chia seeds before. It looks like tappioca, which I enjoy. This recipe sounds and looks amazing. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks!

  3. I love chia seeds. In fact I might be said to have been a bit early to this fashion since I was eating them in the 1970s! I also refer to make yogurt dishes myself with plain yogurt and fruit instead of the sugary combinations that they sell pre-packaged.

  4. Thanks so much for the terrific recipe on Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait with Mountain High Yoghurt! I’ve never had chia seeds before and I’m a bit afraid to try them. Do the chia seeds get soft being in the yogurt? I don’t like anything with crunchy stuff in it. If they get soft, that’s a different story! This Parfait looks so yummy though! I would love to give it a try, if I knew what the Chia Seeds do in it! Thanks for sharing your terrific recipe for Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait with Mountain High Yoghurt with all of us! I truly do appreciate it! Thanks so much! Michele 🙂

  7. This sounds like a very unique tasting dish!!! I love raspberry yogurt!!! I am not sure about the Almond milk, as I find this is too sweet! But, I am willing to try it! Thanks for the recipe!

  8. I never thought of using chia seeds like this. I know they are very good for you, and I buy a brand of oatmeal that contains flaxseed and I believe chia. I won’t go back to regular oatmeal. I’ll definitely have to try chia seeds like this- or even a smoothie.

  9. Thanks again for sharing your recipe on Raspberry Yogurt Chia Seed Parfait with Mountain High Yoghurt! The last time I had asked about the chia seeds. Guess what, I finally got my delivery from a giveaway a long time ago Trachealth, and in the box is a very nice sized bag of chia seeds! Now I will be able to make your recipe and see for myself how they taste and if they get soft. They do look quite small from what I can see through the package! When I saw the package of chia seeds, I said Oh, now I can try that parfait that was on Bay Area Mommy’s website! My husband looked at me like I had 2 heads or something because he had no idea what I was talking about! LOL Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with all of us! I saved the recipe and will give it a try when I get the chance! Thanks so much! I really do appreciate it! Michele 🙂

  17. oh wow, this looks delicious! i’ve just started trying chia…not sure if i like it yet, but this recipe just might help push me over into liking it 🙂

  18. I like to have fresh fruit when it’s in season. On yogurt, smoothies, whatever. I’m looking forward to white peaches and watermelon. Watermelon in yogurt, I may try it.

  19. It’s nice to see a yogurt recipe that doesn’t call for Greek yogurt. That stuff tastes a bit like sour cream to me.

  20. I buy Mountain High Yogurt every now & then. I signed up for the newsletter. I was suppose to get a coupon for signing up, but I still haven’t received it yet. GREAT recipe – thanks for sharing!

  21. That does look good. I used to love raspberries, but developed an allergy to them. I could substitute blackberries or blueberries, though!

  22. I’ll have to check out Whole Foods to see if they carry Mountain High Yoghurt. If not I’ll have to substitute the yogurt I use, just hope it comes out as good. Can’t wait to try it.It looks tasty.

  23. I love Mountain High Yoghurt! This raspberry chia seed parfait is the perfect way to start the day or just a little something to treat yourself with to a mid afternoon snack.

  24. I would love to eat at the Giada!!! I’d love to visit Vegas, too. This looks great I have chia seeds, I want to give it a try!

  25. I have never tried chia but know how good it is for you. This looks like a yummy way to introduce it to my son and I. And seems easy enough to play around with a bit. Bet it’d be yummy w/peaches too.

  26. Yum!! This sounds amazing!! I love Chia seeds!! They are such a powerhouse and so healthy for you!! This parfait is definitely on my must try list!! Thanks so much!!

  27. Because I love raspberry so much I definitely wanted to try this and share with my daughter. Neither of us ever tried Chis seeds. It was a success. Thank you for posting this recipe. I’d never have tried it & ended up loving it. 🙂

  28. That looks to pretty to eat. Yogurt is one of my favorite meals. Yes, a container fills me up. And, I don’t feel guilty about eating it because it’s healthy.

  29. Right, I managed to find some chia seeds in town today, I make my own yoghurt & have some homegrown soft fruits in the freezer so I’ll be trying these at the weekend!
