PB&J has been a favorite combination for decades. Creamy (or chunky!) peanut butter mixed with a fruity jam is the perfect comfort flavor mix and we’ll take any chance to put it to good use. But what if I told you that a sandwich is not the only way you can delight yourself in this combo? That’s right, this PB&J Chia Parfait (originally from the first version of The Friendly Vegan Cookbook) is the healthiest possible version of these classic flavors and we think it might make it to the top of your favorites list.



Strawberry Compote:

  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar

Chia Pudding:

  • ½ cup of chia seeds
  • 1 cup vanilla plant-based milk
  • 2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup or agave
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, for garnish


  1. In a bowl add the chia seeds, plant milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract and mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least two hours or overnight.

  2. Place strawberries and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to medium heat. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring and mashing the fruit occasionally to combine.

  3. Serve the chilled chia pudding garnished with peanut butter, strawberry compote, and fresh strawberries.
