Simple and Sweet Mango Chia Pudding
This vegan simple and sweet mango chia pudding is truly divine. Layers of vanilla-infused chia pudding are draped in a sweet mango cream to create a dessert (or snack) that will have you furiously scooping, scraping, and mmm-ing.
Prep Time8 hrs 15 mins
Total Time8 hrs 15 mins
- 2 cups vanilla coconut milk or almond milk
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 vanilla bean or 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch cardamom
- 1 large mango or 2 small mangoes
Add coconut milk, chia seeds, vanilla bean seeds or extract, 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup, cinnamon, and cardamom to an airtight container. Whisk and refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
Once your chia pudding is ready, slice your mango and scoop the flesh into a food processor. Add in 1 tablespoon maple syrup and process into a smooth mango cream.
In four small glasses or two larger glasses, create layers of chia pudding and mango cream starting with the pudding. I did 6 total layers or 3 layers of each.
Enjoy and refrigerate leftovers!
