Mango-Coconut Chia Pudding

Mango-Coconut Chia Pudding What do you do when you have a case of fresh, ripen mangos at home? Make chia pudding! Mango-Coconut Chia Pudding is my absolute favorite and I NEVER seem to get sick of it. Mangoes are one of those fruits I can’t bear to throw in a blender with other fruits because then you lose it’s distinct sweetness that I prefer to enjoy on it’s own.

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 fresh mango (chopped in chunks)
  • 1tbsp honey (or sweetener of your choice) & shredded coconut

Mix all of the following ingredients together, refrigerate overnight and indulge!

Of course, you can omit the coconut milk to eliminate some of the fat and only use almond milk. You can also get creative and add ingredients such as shredded coconut to make it extra delicious!

    The Meaning of Freedom

    The Meaning of Freedom

    When I was in Europe, I did a few cycling trips, one of them was making the pilgrimage up Mont Ventoux in Southern France. That ride roused me to indulge in a new bike when I came home… well, that is a little white lie because I was already planning to buy a new bike but my adventures inspired me to escalate the urgency to fulfill my needs desires!

    So here my new girl! She is a magnificent, lightning fast, carbon dream machine with electronic shifting and matte black finesse. We still need to play dress-up and she is in need of a minor make-over to really make her mine…

    …but isn’t she beautiful?

      Shangri-La is on a Bicycle

      Cycling takes us to places we would never otherwise see.

      There is really no better way to explore the world other than on a simple bicycle. In a car, you move too fast to be able to soak in your surroundings, get a whiff of the fragrant, flowering meadows and feel the connection of being so rooted to the earth, when your sensory is fully brimming from all the elements. On foot, you move too slow, incapable of exploring miles and miles of roads, countrysides and vistas in one go. On a bicycle, you simply are able to cover epic distances, fueled by mental strength and calories and only limited by your fitness ability. But once you’ve been on a bike and have been captivated by the perpetual sensations of freedom, you may just find yourself not being able to stop.

      I just added a new item to my bucket list: cycling in China. I’ve always wanted to go back to the motherland and visit the Chinese countryside and I think the only way to make the most out of that experience is to travel by bicycle. Now all I need to do is befriend a Mandarin-speaking cyclist so he can be my tour guide. Any takers?
