I love the way the flavors of the strawberry, mango, coconut and vanilla meld together in this recipe. If you portion out this recipe into single serving tupperware it makes a great grab and go breakfast for busy workday mornings.
I ate this today before my morning Yoga class and it was light enough that I didn’t feel overly-full for my workout but it gave me the energy I needed for class.
I am getting into meal prep meaning I prep all of my breakfasts and lunches for the week in advance (Meal prep Sundays!) so I can focus on other things for the week and make sure I don’t revert to eating junk because I always have something healthy and delicious on hand and this recipe is soooo easy to prep in advance.
Chia seeds are a particularly nourishing superfood, especially for brain and heart health. They are a rich source of dietary fiber, omega-3-fatty acids, antioxidants and protein[2,3] With the mango, strawberry, and coconut, this makes for an antioxidant, vitamin, and phytonutrient packed breakfast!
Makes 5 servings
For the Pudding
- ½ Cup Full-Fat Canned Coconut milk
- 1& 1/2 cups Almond milk (or another non-dairy milk)
- 6-7 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1-2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2-3 teaspoons honey or maple syrup (to taste)
- 5-6 diced strawberries
- ½ mango diced
For the Topping
- 1 -1/2 mango, cut into chunks
- 4-5 sliced strawberries
- ¼ cup toasted coconut flakes, unsweetened
- In a large bowl add coconut milk, almond milk, chia seeds, ginger, vanilla, and maple syrup
- Whisk or shake
- Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours, whisking or shaking occasionally.
- Once the pudding has achieved the desired consistency, mix in the finely diced strawberries and mango.
- Portion the pudding out into 5 individual serving cups and top with toasted coconut and additional mango chunks and sliced strawberries.
If the pudding seems too thin after two hours, mix in an extra tablespoon of chia seeds and check back in 30 minutes. The mixture should have a thick pudding-like consistency.
