Recipe: Mango Vanilla Chia Pudding

IMG_2215

This is such a cool, refreshing summer breakfast or snack. Chia seeds are packed with protein, antioxidants, fiber and omega 3 fatty acids. I like to eat them on hot summer days, as chia seeds can help restore energy levels and have been used to help combat dehydration. And, it can be made ahead of time for a quick breakfast to go.

Serves 1
Gather:
3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 cup almond milk
Pinch of vanilla bean powder
2 small mangos, peeled and chopped

THE NIGHT BEFORE: Whisk all of the ingredients (except for the mango). Let sit for a half hour. Whisk again. Transfer to a pint-sized mason jar and store in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, stir again – it should be a pudding-like consistency. Get another mason jar out. Put a layer of mango on the bottom, then layer the pudding, mango, pudding, then top with more mango. Enjoy!

*Requires prep the night before
