Chia pudding has become quite popular lately, but have you had fruity chia pudding? I love those chia squeezes, but they can be quite pricey. Chia seeds are loaded with healthy omega 3s, plus fiber, calcium, protein, and antioxidants. Adding them to your diet is a great way to get more of what we need.
You will need a blender or food processor for this recipe, you will want to blend the mango and lime until it is a smooth puree.
Once you have everything blended, you will add your chia seeds and stir them in well.
Then let it sit a few hours or overnight in the fridge so that the chia can soak up the liquid. I recommend using a straw so it is just like those chia squeeze packets.
3 limes juiced (about 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp juice)
1 mango diced
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 tsp agave or honey
Cube up your mango and remove the skin, then juice your limes and add these two ingredients into a blender.
Blend the mango and lime until totally smooth, then pour into a glass measuring cup that goes up to at least 2 cups.
Next add water to the mango and lime puree until it reaches 2 cups, then whisk in the water.
Now pour out your puree into a bowl, add the chia seeds and mix well until all the seeds are fully incorporated and there are no clumps.
Now cover the bowl and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
After the chia seeds have sat overnight to soak up the liquid, add 1 tsp of agave and another 1/2 cup of water, then stir everything well.
I like to have my fruity chia pudding with a straw so its just like the chia squeezes but feel free to eat it with a spoon. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
