Cheering for Mango Chia Bowls

IMG_6663.JPG

Before mangos disappear forever (or at least until next summer), it’s time to try Mango Chia Pudding. Mango season may have passed, but this is such a refreshing breakfast, snack or dessert. Pick a super ripe and juicy mango and you won’t even think to add any extra sugar or sweetener. The cinnamon pairs nicely and bridges the gap between holding-on-to-summer and oh-wow-it’s-already-fall.

Ingredients (serves 2).

  • 1/4 c chia seeds
  • 1/3 c vanilla skyr yogurt like Siggi’s
  • 1 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 c diced mango (how to here)
  • 1 t coconut flakes
  • Cinnamon

Directions.

  1. Combine chia seeds, yogurt, milk of choice and vanilla in a sealable jar or container. Mix well. Refrigerate for 1-2 hrs or overnight.
  2. Once chia seeds are firm and have a pudding-like consistency, divide between two glasses.
  3. Top each with 1/2 c mango, 1/2 t coconut flakes and a “shake” of cinnamon.
  4. Grab a spoon and enjoy!
