Looks can be deceiving, this dessert is both super delicious and really good for your body. | Chia Seed Pudding : 2 - 3 tbsp chia seeds, 1 c milk alternative (rice, oat and almond are my favorite), optional: cinnamon and / or organic sweetener of choice. Combine ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour. | Mango Topping: 1/4 c thawed frozen mango mashed with cinnamon.
The fruit gods have been good to me this week: a few bunches of organic fair trade bananas (which still need time to ripen), some “overripe” persimmons (not pictured) and an 11 lb box of natural, sticky sweet medjool dates. I’m elated and grateful! All three are sweet fruits and thus combine well (mixing acidic fruit / other foods with sweet fruit can cause fermentation in the stomach = gas, bloating, etc). I’m eating a big bowl of dates and persimmons as we speak- such bliss!
