Mango Chia Pudding Recipe

These chia puddings are the perfect way to start your day with a boost of good nutrition. Chia seeds are impressively rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids and a complete source of protein. Make on an evening and put them in the fridge overnight. This gives them time to reach the perfect consistency and can be enjoyed for breakfast the following day.

Ingredients

  • ½ mango, chopped into fine pieces
  • ¼ cup of chia seeds
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract or ¼ tsp vanilla powder
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • 1.5 cups coconut milk
  • 1.5 tbsp filtered water
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut (to serve)

CNM recommends the use of organic ingredients.

Method

1. Start by blending the pieces of mango and lime juice with ¼ cup of water until you have a thick sauce. Add more water as needed (in tablespoons) to get the mixture going.

2. Place the mango sauce at the base of 2 ramekins and leave to settle.

3. Meanwhile, blend the vanilla powder and coconut milk together and mix in a bowl with the chia seeds. Stir well for 3–4 minutes to thicken.

4. Pour the chia mixture on top of the mango sauce in even portions.

5. Refrigerate the puddings for two hours (or overnight) to gel.

6. Top with the desiccated coconut and enjoy!
