Mango & Chia Seed Pudding

by on April 14, 2015
 

I love chia seeds in bakes and in the famed chia seed pudding.

Chia seed pudding plays on the unique gelling quality of the seeds when soaked in liquid – they form a thick, tapioca-like mix that makes a paplike nutty pudding.

This combination works a treat – mango puree with a delightful homemade coconut milk chia seed pudding.

For the pudding
  1. 1 cup coconut milk
  2. 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  3. 1 - 2 tablespoons sweetener - I used pure cane sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  5. 1 cup mango puree (made ahead)
To garnish
  1. Nuts, toasted coconut, finely grated lime zest
Instructions
  1. In a jar (my preferred receptacle), combine the coconut milk, chia seeds, sweetener and vanilla extract
  2. Leave to stand on the counter, stirring or shaking closed jar 3 or 4 times as the seeds absorb water and swell. This will stop the seeds from clumping
  3. Stir well then refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight (my preferred resting time)
To serve
  1. Set out small pretty glasses - French yogurt pots work well.
  2. Put mango puree at the base of each glass
  3. Top with chia seed pudding
  4. Finish with nuts, coconut, lime zest if using
  5. Serve
