I have just discovered chia. The look of it used to make me shudder until I tried this chia pudding. It’s amazing! This is coconut mango version that reminds of sipping pina coladas by the beach. Chia puddings are best started overnight and assembled the next day. Once assembled, they can be left in the fridge for a few hours until they are ready to serve. These can also assembled in small containers for a picnic or lunch treat.
1 cup coconut milk
3-4 soaked dates
2 tablespoons chia seed
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup mangoes
- Put the vanilla essence, cinnamon, soaked dates and coconut milk through a processor to pulp the dates.
- Add chia seeds and leave overnight.
- Spoon chia seeds into glasses and layer with mangoes. Finish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
