You can’t believe how simple this healthy chocolate mango pudding is!
This pudding is low in fat and high in carbs, which makes it the perfect post-workout meal and fits in well if you’re having a carb refeed.
- 1 Large mango
- 2 Tbs cacao powder
- 1 Small pinch sea salt (optional)
- Topping (optional)
Cut up a large mango and put it in the bowl you intend to eat out of.
Add cacao powder – you can use more or less to taste. Do yourself a favour and make sure it’s raw cacao powder. Regular cocoa powder loses nutrients due to the extra processing, but more importantly, normal cocoa powder tastes like dirt in comparison to cacao.
Add sea salt if you like it – this highlights the awesomeness of the cacao powder.
Use a stick blender to blend it up. I like to leave it a little lumpy so you get a few chunks of mango in there, but you can make it all smooth if that’s your preference.
That’s it – It’s done!
I recommend keeping your mango in the fridge for a bit beforehand, so it’s chilled before you eat it. You could also make the pudding and stick it in the fridge for a bit. Or if you can’t wait, there’s nothing wrong with room temperature.
I topped mine with a sprinkle of cinnamon. You could also top yours with chilli, extra cacao powder, grated 100% cacao, crushed nuts, a dollop of coconut cream or all of those!
I find this is such a simple and refreshing way to enjoy a piece of fruit, and some chocolatey goodness on a summer evening.
