*Creamy chia seed pudding topped with a sweet and citrusy blend of mangoes. *
This mango chia seed pudding is the result of a fierce craving for sunshine and warmth. For lazy days on the beach sipping a tropical drink. For flip-flops and sun-kissed skin.
It’s all one big pipe dream. As I sit here and type this post and spoon creamy gobs of chia seed pudding topped with vibrant honeyed mangos in my face, the one fact remains: it’s -2 degrees outside and snowing.
Every time I FaceTime with my grandparents, my grandfather is in the background counting down the days until spring. I believe the number he rattled off this morning was 24. Being patient is something I’m no good att, which is why you won’t find too many intricate dessert recipes on this site. When I want something, I want it. As in immediately. As in instant gratification.
