What makes Chia Pudding Good for You?
Chia seeds are loaded with fiber and protein so this breakfast can keep you feeling full all morning.
The mango adds tropical sweetness and is loaded with vitamin C and A. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and vanilla give the chia pudding an exotic twist that sing to your taste buds.
How to Make Chia Pudding
This recipe is as simple as mixing together all the ingredients. If you prefer, you can add the mango to the chia pudding the next morning. If using frozen mango I allow it to thaw overnight and add it the next day so it doesn’t water down the chia pudding.
The ratio of chia seeds to liquid is a matter of personal preference. Some people like it thicker, others like to blend it to make it consistent and yet still others like it a little soupier. There is no right or wrong way to make chia pudding!
BUT our perfect ratio of chia seeds to liquid is 1 part chia seeds to 6 parts liquid. So play with it to make your own. WARNING…if this is your first time making awesome chia pudding, let it sit overnight. The texture can change dramatically!
We hope your taste buds enjoy their visit to the tropics!
