This luscious dessert promises summer tropics and beach vacations in your mouth. Yes, it’s possible. I could practically feel the sand on my toes. Plus, it constantly amazes me how sweet fruit is on its own. This dessert is free of any type of processed sugar or sweeteners. It’s refreshing and light, and totally adorable served in mason jars.
Note to self: Please remember this dessert, especially on the days when I can be found scouring the highest, dustiest pantry cabinets in search of a sweet treat. There’s usually not much back there except stale pasta, anyway. Ok, thanks.
Mango Chia Pudding Recipe
Yield: 1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 cups frozen mango
1/4 cup almond milk
2 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
Black sesame seeds or fresh mint, for garnish
1. Place mango chunks and almond milk in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour mixture into desired mason jar(s) and add the chia seeds. Whisk or stir (I find a whisk works best) until chia seeds are evenly distributed in the mango mix.
3. Cover mason jars and allow to sit, refrigerated, at least 1 hour before eating. Garnish with black sesame seeds and fresh mint.
