Not a sweet tooth, BUT 2 words and 2 words only: Chia and Pudding.
One of my favorite desserts and I don’t have a lot on my list. I usually prepare it without pomegranate seeds but I had some right there this time and I just had to add some extra color and texture to the whole thing. 🙈 It turned out to be a very good idea, but you can still prepare this pudding without pomegranate. I promise it’ll be super delicious anyway.
Ingredients (for 2):
- 4 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 20 tablespoons of milk (I used Vanilla flavored soy milk)
- sugar (you can totally skip this one if your mango is ripe and/or if you use sweetened milk)
- 1 big mango, peeled and cut
- 1 pomegranate (optional)
- The secret ingredient (aka cat hair)
Wash, clean and cut the Mango into small pieces. Put it in a small pot and cook it for a couple of minutes, until it gets somehow jelly, but it is still bright colored. You really want to keep its beautiful yellow shade instead of turning it all brown and yucky. 😅 You can sweeten it with some sugar if it isn’t ripe and sweet enough, but I usually don’t find that necessary. However adding a teaspoon of sugar will give it a caramelised taste which I really really like. Let it rest. Meanwhile put the chia seeds in a bowl and add some milk. Give it a stir every couple of minutes.
Put the pudding in 2 glasses or transparent bowls (because the layers are so pretty and you surely don’t want to hide them). You can put te pudding on the bottom and the mango topping on top. But you can also mix it. Or use more layers. Play with the colors and textures, it’s going to be so much fun! And now the hardest part: leave the dessert in the fridge untuched for a couple of hours or overnight. 🙈
P.s. It’s perfect for breakfast too. 🙈
