Recipe Of The Week: Mango Chia Pudding
Recipe this week is this delicious mango chia pudding that my sister and I made. With the weather finally feeling like Spring we wanted something fresh and nutritious. Chia pudding is very easy to prepare and perfect if you are in a hurry in the mornings and want a super quick breakfast. It also makes a nutritious snack. You prepare it the night before and you can use any fruit of your choice. We used mango.
For the Chia Pudding
2 Tablespoons of chia seeds
1/2 Cup of coconut milk
1 Tablespoon of coyo coconut yoghurt
Splash of vanilla essence
For the Topping
1 Mango peeled and cut into chunks
Hemp seeds sprinkled on top of the mango
Place the chia seeds, coconut milk, coyo yoghurt and vanilla essence in a glass or mason jar. Mix all the ingredients together and place in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight. We normally prepare ours the night before. During the first 30 minutes stir the ingredients again as the coconut milk can become firm. Once the chia seed pudding is ready top with the mango chunks and hemp seeds and enjoy.
