In case you hadn’t heard, chia seeds are a major superfood and make a delious chia pudding! They contain the highest amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, which are necessary for a healthy heart. Unlike flaxseeds, chia seeds don’t have to be ground to maximise their nutritional potential.
Combined with sweet mangoes and blood oranges that are packed with vitamin C and anthocyanins (antioxidants), this is guaranteed to become your go-to healthy pudding.
? 3 tbsp. Chia Seeds
? 2-4 drops vanilla FlavDrops
? 250ml milk (of choice)
? 1 mango (frozen for at least 1 hour)
? 50ml blood orange juice
? 1 blood orange
#1 First, make the chia pudding. Place chia seeds, FlavDrops and milk into a bowl and mix. Leave to sit for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent lumps from forming, then place into the fridge for at least 1 hour.
#2 Whilst waiting, make the mango blood orange smoothie by blending the mango and the blood orange juice until you get a smooth mixture
#3 When the chia pudding is set, spoon a small amount into 2 glasses, then press a few small rings of blood orange around the inside of the glass
#4 Pour in a little of the mango blood orange smoothie, then more chia pudding, then the remaining smoothie mixture. Top with a little nut butter and some small fresh mango cubes then devour or refrigerate for later!
