Mango, Coconut & Chia Seed Pudding

mangococonutchia  About a month ago, I was lucky enough to buy several trays of Mangoes at the markets for a bargain basement price. I skinned the mangoes, cut off the cheeks and froze them in snap lock bags in the freezer. As a result, I have half a freezer of frozen mango cheeks. I decided to experiment and make a mango & coconut chia seed pudding – the result is a pudding which is not overly sweet at all and perfect for breakfast. These chia seed puddings are not only super healthy for you, but they will keep you feeling full and satisfied for quite some time.

Mango & Coconut Chia Seed Pudding
 
Chia seed puddings are fantastic as an alternative to yoghurt and thanks to the Chia seeds, this pudding will keep you full for some time. They are great for breakfast or a healthy alternative for dessert.
