Packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are a great start to the day, although their texture is an acquired taste!
So here, I whiz them up in a blender with mango, mint, and coconut milk to make a delectably smooth and creamy pudding that’s fresh and fragrant at the same time. It’s a real winner!
You can use other fruits in place of the mango, such as papaya or kiwifruit, berries or ripe stone fruits when in season.
The recipe also uses baobab powder, which is made from the ground seeds of the baobab fruit. Its strong citrus notes of orange and grapefruit hint at its nutrient-dense profile — high in fiber and rich in vitamin C, calcium, potassium and thiamin. I love to add it to raw desserts (like this one) as well as to smoothies.
