Today, we’re going to skip right over spring and pretend it’s summer. Sound good?

There’s so many things I love about summertime. I love the family gatherings, beach trips, and the warmer temperatures. But most of all, I love the flavors of summer – they are fresh and light! I’m already dreaming about grilled corn on the cob and a big ‘ol slice of watermelon that’s perfectly chilled.

The other thing I love about summer is that we usually take some time away and go on a tropical getaway. It could be close by or far away, but there’s nothing quite like digging your toes into the sand and listening to the sound of the ocean waves.

When I think of tropical flavors, two came to mind that I knew would be the perfect combination in this creamy and refreshing chia seed pudding – coconut and mango. It’s a match made in tropical heaven in my mind (and taste buds)!

The combination of the creamy coconut chia pudding layered with the sweet mango puree is a dish that is sure to impress and super simple to make. Not to mention, it’s full of nutrients, so you don’t have to feel guilty eating this sweet treat.

Mango Coconut Chia Pudding: Nutrition 411

The star in this ingredient and what makes this pudding, well, pudding are the chia seeds. These tiny seeds absorb up to 8 times their weight in liquid, creating a tapioca-like texture in this recipe.

Chia seeds are best known for these three standout nutrients:

  • Fiber: promotes healthy digestion and keeps things movin’ as they should be. One serving (1 oz = 2 Tablespoons) contains 10 grams of fiber – that’s almost half of the recommended daily amount for women!
  • Protein: one of your body’s sources for fuel, helps keep you feeling fuller for longer, and provides the building blocks for cell production in the body.
  • Omega-3s: Also known as “the healthy fats”, omega-3s are key for brain health (helping to keep you mentally sharp!) and can even aid in weight management.

The other star ingredient in this recipe that brings the tropical flavor to the party are the mangoes! Did you know that in 1 cup of mangoes, you’re getting 100% of your daily vitamin C needs? Mangoes are also a great source of vitamin A, folate and B vitamins.
