This week I had so many mangoes that I needed to use up. And with that in mind, I felt inspired to come up with different ways to prepare mangoes. I do not like waste and I refuse to let these ripe fruits go to pot. So, when in an idea rut, go simple. Make a compote. Making a compote will give you more days with your favorite yummy fruit!
For this chia seed pudding, I decided to try out full-fat canned coconut cream. I will admit that I need to adjust this one a little because the pudding came out thicker than I liked. It was still yummy, but it was more of a flan thickness than a soft pudding. But hey, maybe I just invented a new dessert!
A pinch of cayenne pepper kicks up the flavor profile. Not too much but just enough to elevate the other flavors. There is something about when spicy and sweet are combined, that creates palate pleasing magic.Print
