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.

  • 2 cups vanilla coconut milk or almond milk

  • 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.
