coconut mango chia pudding
I will say this once- I like you more than chocolate.
Your puckering sweetness balanced with that tangy sour bite brought home with a buttery melt-in-your-mouth feel is almost too much to handle sometimes.
On the rating scale for fruit you are coming in at a 9.1 – points lost for availability + taking into account I’ve injured myself several times trying to slice around your oversized pit.
I forgive you though.
How could I not- rich in Vitamin A, flooding with antioxidants and a hearty punch of fiber to keep your belly doing what it should.
It is only natural to pair you with the almighty chia, and creamy coconut to create a pudding that eats like a dessert but can stand in for breakfast any day of the week.
As the sun shines a little stronger and we look to please our summer palates, this tropical-inspired treat will zip you to Phuket in 5 minutes flat.
I’ve been eating this pudding as a power breakfast lately but have been dreaming of serving it after an Asian-inspired barbeque party, with a little coconut whip on the top for pizazz.
If you’re looking for a way to infuse more mango love into your life- without the risk of knife slips, sticky hands or pools of juice at your desk- this pudding is your cup of tea.
It gets along very well in the fridge and can be made a day or two ahead of time & catapulted into into your purse as you sweat out the door.
Easy, quick, unearthly delicious & energy sustaining- GET IT IN YA.
