If you think healthy desserts are boring, you haven't tried this Layered Mango Chia Pudding. This is not only guilt-free, it's vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and takes just minutes to prepare. It's less than 150 calories per serving too.
Raise your hand if you love dessert!
Both hands raised!
I always talk about how important moderation is, right? I also love to create healthy treats that you can feel good about. Ones that nourish your body and are packed with all good stuff. No guilt and you don't that yucky feeling after eating too much sugar and refined carbohydrates.
We've all had that yucky feeling before.
Now don't get me wrong, if I want a cookie every now and then, I will eat it and enjoy the heck out of it .But for most of the time, I'd rather eat something filled with protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3-fatty acids. Hey, what about this chia pudding?
This chia pudding is a perfect example of how you can easily swap out a treat that is loaded with sugar for one that is nutritious. I used Silk Unsweetened Cashew Milk. I love it because there's no added sugar in there (yup, that's 0 grams of sugar per serving) and it's dairy-free. Let's not forget that it's also gluten-free and vegan too.
There's so much to love in this dessert.
You can easily use a different fruit if you don't like mango (GASP!) but I get it. There are so many things I don't like. Mango is definitely not on that list. I loooooove mango, especially when the weather gets warmer.
And the beauty of this pretty dessert is that I didn't add any extra sugar at all. The mango is naturally sweet on its own. I told you this was good for you!
