Mango Coconut Chia Pudding Recipe
MANGO COCONUT CHIA PUDDING RECIPE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Chia pudding makes a great snack on the go or a quick overnight breakfast. Chia seeds are packed with anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids as well as a substantial amount of fiber, making them a great addition to smoothies, breakfasts and desserts like this one. Chia seeds also help to stabilize blood sugar and create a feeling of satiety, keeping you full for longer. The addition of a scoop of Naturally Nourished Grassfed Whey Protein supports lean body mass and cognitive function, making this a guilt-free, health promoting treat!
Makes 4 servings
1 cup full fat coconut milk (we like Native Forest brand, which is BPA-free)
1 cup filtered water
2 Tablespoons local honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
1 scoop Naturally Nourished Grassfed Whey Protein
pinch sea salt
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 cup mango, diced
1 tablespoon local honey
Berries or nuts of your choice for topping, optional
Blend all ingredients except for the chia seeds until smooth. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and whisk in the chia seeds until thoroughly combined and mixture begins to thicken. Refrigerate overnight or for at least three hours until thick. In the meantime, puree the mango with the tablespoon of honey until smooth. Use this mixture as a topping or layer with the pudding to create a parfait effect. Top with fresh fruit or brazil nuts. Store in mason jars for a quick snack on the go!
