Healthy Chia Seed Pudding Mango Cardamom

This Healthy Mango Cardamom Chia Seed Pudding is inspired by one of the most popular desserts served at the bakery I work at — a Mango Lime and

Cardamom Coconut Tapioca Pudding. The two recipes are similar but very different at the same time. Healthy Mango Cardamom Chia Seed Pudding

Matcha Chia Pudding | Emilie Eats

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I competed in Miss Louisiana USA, my last pageant ever, this past weekend. I didn’t place, and that was totally okay with me. My goal was to prep in a healthy way without dieting and overexercising (more about this in a post to come) and to be completely myself. I definitely did all of that and couldn’t be prouder!

Some people don’t believe me when I say that I crave roasted Brussels sprouts or a simple piece of fruit with almond butter. That’s what my body loves. Sure, a bowl of snickerdoodle ice cream or some chips & salsa is good for the soul every now and then. But once you’ve been eating whole, plant foods for so long, that’s what you really want.

I did crave two particular foods when I got back from the pageant: a banana peanut butter sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread (which is happening this week) and chia seed pudding. Specific much?

Matcha green tea powder provides sustained energy instead of a jittery rush like coffee. The healthy fats and fiber in chia seeds will keep you satisfied all morning, or you can make this as a super healthy snack. Top with granola or nuts for some crunch and, of course, some fresh fruit!
