Mango Chia Pudding is delicious, refreshing and satisfying, full of nutrients and flavour – perfect for breakfast or as a luscious, light dessert. It is layered with chia pudding, coconut milk and mango, creamy and fruity at once.
Summer season aka MANGO season is coming up here in Australia, but if you cannot get your hands on fresh mango, have a look if your local stores have frozen mangoes, otherwise you can of course use any other fruit that’s currently in season where you are (or any other frozen fruit as well).
Instead of coconut milk, you can also use any other plant based milk, such as almond milk, oat milk or rice milk. Just remember to dilute extra thick coconut cream or anything alike in order for the chia seeds to have enough liquid to absorb.
You can easily prepare it a day ahead, perfect for early starts or as a stress free contribution to a party.
