Since I love telling you guys random facts about me, I figured I’d kick off today’s post with TWO- yes, two- random facts!
1.) I hate capitalization. If I didn’t need to capitalize my “I’s”, I wouldn’t. On my phone, I’ve turned off auto capitalization because it bothers me so much!
2.) I hate having unopened notifications on my phone. You know when you can flip that thing down at the top and it shows you all your un opened notifications? Yeah, I always clear that thing. I also have a habit of opening text messages to get rid of the notification, and then not responding for hours. Anyone who I text on a regular basis can attest for this.
So, now that I’ve told you two completely random facts about myself that have nothing to do with this recipe, let’s move on.
Chia pudding is one of those foods you either love or hate. For me, I need to be in the right mood for it. I will admit that it has a funny consistency and that alone can throw me off, but I’ve discovered that when paired with fresh fruit and other foods, it’s quite enjoyable!
Today’s chia pudding is all thanks to my mom, who surprised me with a fresh mango a few weeks ago. She told me to use it for a recipe, so here I am! I love mangos, but boy did I forget about how messy they are to cut and eat. I think I went through 1/2 a roll of paper towels just from one mango.
I paired the mango with fresh strawberries, because when it’s strawberry season, you need to take advantage! No, seriously- there’s nothing like strawberry season. The juiciness and natural sweetness from the berries is to die for. When paired with the fresh mango, coconut, and chia pudding, it’s a match made in heaven.
Thus, I present to you this mango strawberry chia pudding, which is vegan, gluten free, paleo, and refined sugar free! It’s naturally sweet from the fruit and (optional) maple syrup, as well as packed with healthy fats and protein. Plus, it requires minimal dishes and ingredients. WINNING.
