1 cup full fat coconut milk
1 cup almond milk
¼ cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups cubed mango, divided
Shaved dark chocolate (optional)
It is hard to do anything with mango except cut it and eat it. However, you won’t be disappointed with this creamy coconut-mango tropical pudding. Top with some shaved dark chocolate, and you have a perfectly healthy and guilt free dessert.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together coconut milk, almond milk, chia seeds, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and vanilla extract. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until thick like pudding.
Meanwhile, blend 1 cup of mango with the remaining tablespoon maple syrup on high until smooth and creamy. Store in fridge until ready to use.
To serve, layer mango puree on the bottom of a glass jar or bowl then add the pudding. Top with chunks of mango and shaved dark chocolate (if using).
