Confession: this was my first time trying chia pudding. I can't believe I've been missing out on this my entire life! Nevertheless, I spruced the popular dessert up a bit and gave it a fancy touch. You can eat this awesome, gourmet layered chia pudding for breakfast or snack!
Layers make everything more fun (and pretty!). Start from the bottom with the chia pudding, place mango nice cream in the middle and finish everything up with a garnish of blackberries and muesli.
Full of antioxidants, omega 3, fiber and protein, this gourmet layered chia pudding will keep you full and energized until your next meal. I was careful to make it 100% suitable for our vegan friends, but I also didn't add any extra sugar. It would have been unnecessary: the mangos make this healthy treat sweet enough!
Layered Chia pudding
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 unsweetened almond milk
Mix together and place in fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
Mango nice cream
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
Blend together on food processor or blender until it reaches a creamy consistency.
Top the chia mixture with the nice cream to create the layered chia pudding, then top everything blackberries (or any fruit you like!) and handful of muesli, nuts or seeds of your choice. Enjoy!
