Grab a mason jar & let's get cooking (more like mixing in this case!).
3 tbs chia seeds, white or black
1 cup coconut milk (or any plant based milk)
1/2 tspn Maple syrup
1/2 tspn ground cinnamon
Topping:1 mango cheek diced
Little handful of toasted organic shredded coconut
12 activated almonds chopped (optional)
- Combine Chia Seeds, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon in a glass jar, stir, close tight and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
- Before serving, top with some toasted coconut, fresh mango and activated almonds.
Get creative as you like with toppings! You may like to try sliced banana and blueberries for an extra dose of antioxidants and potassium.
To help save you time in the morning, grab a couple of jars and prep the puddings the night before - breakfast will be as easy as grabbing the jar out of the fridge the next morning on your way out.
Puddings can be stored in the fridge for up to four days, making these little pots of goodness super easy to get organised ... Meal prep TICK !
I also love to double this recipe as a delicious desert for those nights when you may feel like a healthy sweet treat or have unexpected friends pop round ...
