I have to admit that the first time I had a go at making the now oh-so-trendy Chia Pudding for the first time, the result was the same as that initial sip of shampoo you get down your throat as a kid when you don´t listen to your mum asking you to keep your eyes and mouth closed as she is washing your hair (aged 3 or so 😉 🙂 ).
Totally not yum, or anything close to it.
So I stayed off making any of these the-worlds-easiest-and-fastest-plus-superhealthy breakfasts for almost a year, savouring the tasty one´s I could get in cafés in Östersund, Göteborg, Köbenhavn, Haarlem, Heemstede, Amsterdam…
Then a few weeks ago this recipe landed in our shopping cart – can´t remember if it was from Dekamarkt or AH, but anyway – it´s totally yum! Not a hint of shampoo taste, just total bliss.
If you´d like to try it, here it is;
1 can full fat coconut milk
40 gr chia seeds
2 tbspns honey or maple syrup
1 tspn vanilla extract
Half a mango (the original recipe was for wild peaches, but they´re not in season, so you go with what you´ve got as Stephi says)
50 gr almonds
All you do is stir together all ingredients aside from the almonds and fruit/berries.
Pour the mixture in to two bowls, tea cups or jars. Let them sit in the fridge over night.
Spread the fruit/berries and the almonds on top of your pudding in the morning and enjoy!
