Mango Chia Pudding
This chia pudding with mango is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s also a tasty, tropical delight for kids. Chia puddings make a great breakfast, snack or lunch side.
- 9 oz. frozen mango chunks thawed (W)
- 11 oz. milk of choice (W)
- 1.5-2 oz. maple syrup or date syrup
- 3 Medjool dates pitted (55 g, weighed without pits)
- 1 tsp. organic vanilla extract
- Pinch sea salt
- 12-13 Tbs. chia seeds
Place an empty blender on a digital scale and tare to zero. You’ll be adding each ingredient directly into the blender.
In a blender, combine all of the ingredients, except for the chia seeds. Tare between each weighted ingredient. Blend until ultra smooth.
Transfer the mix to a large container with a lid.
Gently stir in the chia seeds. Make sure there aren’t any clumps and the seeds are well distributed.
Refrigerate for several hours or overnight to set.
- For a looser pudding, use less chia seeds.
- Do not freeze.
- We like to use this pudding as a side dish in lunches. It’s great for those who are unable to purchase commercial puddings.
