This overnight mango chia seeds oatmeal pudding is fluffy and deliciously creamy. The beauty of it is how it is made. I like to add half the amount of the shredded coconut the night before and other half the next day. This way it is creamy but at the same time still has a bit of crunch to it. You may have to add some sweetener, depending on the ripeness of the mango.
Preparation time: 10 mins
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ cup rolled oats
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- 1 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 cup fresh mango, chopped
- 1 squeezed lime juice
In a jar, combine the chia seeds, rolled oats, ½ tbsp shredded coconut, and coconut milk
Mix well and leave in the fridge to soak overnight. The mixture will thicken as the chia seeds expand
In the morning add the remaining shredded coconut and mix well
Chop the mango and drizzle with squeezed lime juice. If the mango is not sweet enough, add the maple syrup
To serve, use two glass jars and build layers. Begin with a layer of the chia oats mixture and top with a layer of chopped mango.
Add the remaining chia oat mixture and top with remaining mango.
