Tropical Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com @mangoboard #adIt has officially been 32 days since my first mono symptoms showed up.  And while it has been a rough few weeks, it is honestly hard to believe that it has been showing its evil self for that long.  Luckily, I would say that I am feeling about 75 percent better than I was during the first two weeks of the illness.  And quite possibly most importantly, some of my healthier cravings are finally starting to kick back in after a couple of weeks of nausea and major food aversions.

Tropical Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com @mangoboard #adTwo of those healthy food cravings have been chia pudding and mangos.  And since it turns out the two pair quite nicely together, this past Sunday morning’s pre-walk breakfast was an absolute no-brainer.

Tropical Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com @mangoboard #adTropical.  Refreshing.  Summery.  And healthy.  What more could you want?

Tropical Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com @mangoboard #adMangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals and are rich in antioxidants.  Since they are a good source of vitamins A, C, and B6, eating them can help boost immunity.  My mono-attacked body is all about boosting immunity right now, but they’re also a great food to eat for workout recovery and just general overall health.

Tropical Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com @mangoboard #adWhile we know that mangos are healthy and taste good, if you are anything like me, you may be intimidated when it comes to actually selecting and cutting into them.  I know I was for the first 25 years or so of my life.  But lucky for you, I’ve got your back!

Even though I always thought it was all about the color when it comes to ripeness (I blame bananas for this), the color actually has very little to do with selecting the perfect mango.  You’re better off actually getting in there and touching the mango.  If it has a slight “give” and is soft to the touch, you are good to go!  And once it is ripe, you can refrigerate it for up to five days until you’re ready to chow down.

Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Nightshade-Free, Soy-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Whole 30

Serves 1

Ingredients

1/3 cup of full-fat coconut milk (I prefer varieties without any additives)
1 cup of water
half of a ripe banana
1/4 of a large, ripe mango
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of coconut sugar, optional
3 TB chia seeds

Topping ideas:
1/4 of a large, ripe mango, diced
shredded coconut
dried mango, banana, and/or pineapple
your favorite nut or seed butter
white chocolate chips

Directions

1. Combine coconut milk, water, banana, 1/4 of a mango, vanilla extract, and coconut sugar in a blender.  Pulse on high until smooth.

2. Place chia seeds in a pint-sized mason jar (leftover nut or seed butter jars work great, too).  Pour the coconut mango mixture into the mason jar.  Seal and shake until well-combined.

3. Refrigerate overnight, or for at least four hours.

4. Add any desired toppings.

    I live at a permaculture community in mexico for half the year and was sad to leave before the mangos were ready! There were thousands! this recipe looks amazing, looking forward to trying soaking the chia in the ingredients usually then my usual method of just water. samantha veitch recently posted...Cashew Berry ChessecakeMy Profile
