My mom discovered my blog (Szia Anya!), and she started to be really interested in chia puddings. She has already tried out my pumpkin spice one, but now I thought this one could be closer to her taste, since she really loves mangoes. Who doesn’t, right? (I used to hate them, but it’s another story….)
The recipe is as easy as all the chia pudding recipes, you don’t have to do a lot more than mixing the ingredients together, then wait for a few hours. I would recommend to soak the cashews for 4-8 hours, but 1 hour will also do. Same goes for the chia-oat mixture.
The chia pudding with the cinnamon is very warming, the mango-banana-vanilla ice cream is fresh and cooling, so they are perfect together. You can blend a few mint leaves to the ice cream too, to make it extra refreshing. I served mine with some almond and dried cranberries.
So here it is, a chia pudding with mango for my mom. I hope you like it too.
- for the ice cream:
- 1 mango
- 1 frozen banana
- ½ cup of cashews
- 1 vanilla bean
- for the pudding:
- ½ cup of plant milk (I used almond milk)
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp rolled oats
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Start by soaking the cashews for a few hours. In an other bowl mix together the chia seeds, the oats, the milk, the cinnamon and a spoon of agave. Let it set for at least an hour.
- Peel the mangoes and place them in a food processor with the frozen banana, vanilla bean and the soaked cashews. Blend until creamy. You can add a splash of milk so it blends easier.
- Layer the pudding and the mango cream in a glass and add your toppings. Enjoy!
