Vanilla Bean and Mango Chia Seed Pudding

Vanilla Bean and Mango Chia Seed Pudding - Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo and No Refined Sugars | The Healthy Family and Home

This Vanilla Bean and Mango Chia Seed Pudding is one of the first recipes I’ve made using my new organic vanilla bean powder.

If you’ve never had chia seed pudding before, it’s a super healthy pudding-like snack loaded with nutrients from chia seeds.

And, there are so many different varieties you can make too!

Although I normally make some kind of  chocolate chia seed pudding, this time I wanted to try something different.

I had just received my order of 100% vanilla bean powder in the mail and wanted to use it to make a raw, fruity, sweet snack…and this was it!

Although these two puddings aren’t exactly identical in taste and texture, here are the 15 ingredients in a popular commercial brand:

 

Jell-O Tapioca Pudding

Tip #1:  I don’t think this would turn out the same if you tried to substitute the pure vanilla bean powder with vanilla extract.  I didn’t test it with the extract because I didn’t want to waste an entire serving of my chia pudding to try it out and because I was so pleased with the vanilla bean powder.  One of the reasons I switched from using the extract is because I didn’t care for the strong alcohol flavor, especially in raw snacks like this one.  You don’t have to worry about that when using the powder and, it will last twice as long as the extract because you only have to use half as much.  It’s the best $24 dollars I have spent in a long time, hands down.

Tip #2:  This is not an overly sweet dessert (getting it’s sweetness from the mango and 2 tablespoons of granulated sweetener), so adjust the amount of mango/sweetener if you prefer a sweeter pudding. I used raw coconut crystals as my sweetener, but you can substitute with the sweetener of your choice.

Tip #3:  I like to use a mason jar to mix it and then eat my pudding straight from the jar, but you don’t have to use a mason jar to mix it up.  Just put all the ingredients into a small bowl, stir very well and put it in the refrigerator to firm.

Tip #4:  This recipe will make 1 large serving or 2 smaller servings.

      Hi there Lindsay! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe! The good thing about this recipe is that it’s so versatile and you can really use any fruit with it…I bet the peach was really good!

      Another version I make a lot, but haven’t posted yet, it a chocolate chia seed pudding with homemade almond milk, either 1/2 banana or touch of sweetener and some raw cacao…yum!

      Thanks for trying out the recipe and for taking the time to let me know you liked it, I really appreciate it ;)
