Mango Coconut Pudding

This is one of the simplest dessert I have ever made. Blend everything, chill and serve..... that's it. Saw this simple and delicious Mango Coconut  pudding on Facebook, and it attracted me so much that I made it the following weekend for a small  gathering at my place.  We had 2 more desserts on the menu but my Mango Coconut Pudding was the super hit among kids and grownups. 

Mangoes are in season  and this is the right time to make this pudding. You can make this pudding with the store bought mango pulp too if mangoes are not in season.  Adding Chia seeds gives this pudding a perfect texture and its healthy too. These seeds are rich in Omega-3 Fatty acids and vitamin B. Chia seeds can be added to other foods as a topping or put in smoothies, cereal bars, yogurt, bread or breakfast cereals. The gel like substance in this seeds  when soaked in liquids  becomes a simi solid substance like a pudding or jelly.  Here goes the 2nd post for week 2, under the theme "Cook with Coconut" for BM 62.




Ingredients:



Mango pulp 1 cup
Coconut Milk 1 1/2  to 2 cups
Honey 1/4 cup
Soaked almonds 1/4 cup or Almond Milk 3/4 cup
Chia seeds 1/2 cup
Raspberries or any other berries to garnish


Preparation:


Soak almonds over night or for couple of hours, remove skin and set aside.
In a blender add almonds and few spoons of water to make a smooth paste.
Now ad mango pulp, coconut milk and  honey.
Blend everything well.





Remove in a large bowl.
Now add Chia seeds and mix it well.
Cover and refrigerate over night or for at least 6 to 7  hours. 
Serve chilled with some berries, chia seeds  or crushed nuts on top.

Note:

You can even take equal quantities of coconut milk and mango pulp.  It depends on which flavor you like most.
