Mango and coconut milk chia pudding: a mighty fine way to end your meal

Barcelona, Spain

Hello ladies,

The weather is still mostly beautiful in Barcelona although the temperature is starting to head south and the leaves have begun their slow fade to yellow. Which begs the question… where did summer go? The last few months have just flown by. I can’t believe that Autumn is coming in just a few short weeks.

The fruit aisles are still packed with delicious varieties of peaches and we’ve seen some new seasonal plums (Reine Claude anyone?) grace the stands as well. A couple of weeks ago mango started to appear in every shop that sells produce. I guess that means it’s mango season? I’ve not been a big fan of mango in the past (I blame the mango-chutney-on-everything craze of the early 2000’s) but thought I should give it another try just to be fair. I got my chance the Sunday before last when I was asked to bring dessert to a dinner where thai curry would be the main dish. I knew exactly what to make: mango and coconut milk chia pudding. I’ve been dying to try my hand at making chia pudding for a while. It always looks so pretty and it’s a great vegan whole food plant-based dessert. I figured that mango and coconut milk would make a killer combo as well as complement the flavors of the thai curry (which was absolutely delicious in case you were wondering).

The result was scrumptious and earned high praise from everyone around the table. I should also mention that on top of being healthy and tasty this recipe is incredibly simple to make. What’s not to love?

Homemade Hazelnut Chocolate Spread

Barcelona,

Hello ladies 🙂

I hope you are all doing well!

In Barcelona, everything is now back to normal: my parents have just left after spending a few weeks with us. It was so wonderful to have them around, especially since I hadn’t seen my dad in more than a year! They were both so happy to spend some time with the pequeña and we were all spoiled during their stay. Wonderful times.

This recipe is one I made while my parents were staying with us. Last Saturday, they treated us to a very nice breakfast at our place and I wanted to try this recipe for a long time. It seemed like the perfect moment!
