Blueberry and "Tapioca" Parfait

This was so easy, light and refreshing, and only took me about 20 minutes to prepare. I didn't really measure the ingredients, but I'll try and estimate for you. White chia seeds absorb the liquid and give the pudding a very tapioca like texture. Add a good vanilla extract, and you have an absolutely divine dessert!

Blueberry and Tapioca Parfait
1 cup blueberries

Tapioca Pudding
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 to 3/4 cup water (add slowly as needed)
pinch sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract - I used 3 drops *Medicine Flower Extract (it's my absolute favorite vanila)
1 1/2 Tbsp raw honey (or your liquid sweetener of choice)
2 Tbsp white chia (you can use regular, but it will darken color of tapioca pudding)
1/8 tsp cinnamon, to taste

Note: You can decrease the cashews and increase a bit of chia too!

Blend cashews and water until creamy. add remaining ingredients and taste for sweetness. Add more chia seeds to thicken as desired.

In a wine glass, alternate layers of  blueberries and Tapioca pudding. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Chill or enjoy immediately!!! 

*Note: Mention "Rawfully Tempting" in Shipping Comments, and Medicine Flower will include a Special Bonus Sample with any order.

I made this today with just picked blueberries and it was to die for!! So easy and wonderfully decadent feel to it for such a small expenditure of time and energy. I used macadamias as I didn't have cashews and I'm sure a blend of any of them would work well. I also did it in my small personal blender so there was hardly any cleanup. Win, win, win and truly one of the yummiest treats ever! Thank you RT!!!!
