Ingredients For Mango Chia Pudding

How to make Mango Chia Pudding?
First, put chia seeds and white granulated sugar into a glass mason jar.
Next, pour in either full-fat or low-fat canned coconut milk.
Now, prepare the mango puree. Peel a ripe mango, remove the seed, and chop the flesh into chunks. Blend the chunks into a smooth puree using a mini food processor or small blender. Measure out ½ cup of the puree for this recipe.
If you have plenty of mangoes, you can also try making a delicious mango clafoutis or baked mango.
Sprinkle in freshly ground cardamom and a pinch of salt.
Take a spoon and gently mix all the ingredients together until they are well blended.
Seal the jars tightly and refrigerate them for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours. Personally, I prefer doing this the night before and allowing the jars to rest in the fridge overnight!
- To make a delectable dessert, choose a sweet, juicy, and flavorful fresh mango.
- Instead of store-bought cardamom powder, opt for freshly ground cardamom.
- Experiment with regular milk or almond milk as an alternative.
- The amount of sugar required varies based on the sweetness of the fruit you select, so add as little or as much as you desire.
- For the creamiest pudding-like consistency, allow it to set overnight.
- To ensure your chia seeds absorb the milk and become plump, use fresh ones.
Absolutely! While it may not match the delightful taste of luscious, fully-ripened mangoes discovered during the peak of summer, I can definitely fulfill your request.
