Food

Mango is a Super Food!

There are many nutritional benefits to mangos. They are high in antioxidants, meaning they help neutralize the tens of thousands of free radicals which wreak havoc on our cells every day. Their nutrition helps boost our immune system, which works on keeping rogue cells in check (e.g. cancer). It is good for digestion and heart health too. And our eyes love beta carotene. The omegas in the chia is good for the skin, and the skin likes mangos too!

Here is an easy recipe to make a wonderful pudding with no added sugar or dairy. The chia seeds boost the protein and fiber, and the coconut is a good fat. Enjoy!

 

Mango Chia Pudding, serves 2, preparation time 30 minutes

1 cup full fat coconut milk (from a can)

2 Tbsp. chia seeds

1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped

Toasted coconut for garnish

Shake the full fat coconut milk. (If you have regular coconut water, use 3 Tbsp chia.) In a glass, stir in the chia seeds into the coconut milk and let the seeds gel while you peel the mango and cut into chunks. Blend the mango in a food processor with a little coconut milk to get a smooth consistency. When the coconut chia has thickened, place a layer in a glass, alternating with the mango and top with toasted coconut when ready to serve.

It can be made ahead of time and chilled in the refrigerator.

 

Moreover, that all can eat and drink and enjoy the good of all their toil—this is a gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:13
