A breakfast parfait for mango lovers

28/01/2017

Hey, how you doin’? ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s rainy and gloomy in Bergen all over again, but I don’t care this time (strong self motivation over here, haha). I hope you are having a nice Saturday, if not – I suggest doing this parfait for a snack (I know, the title says breakfast, but… it could actually be a late breakfast/snack in my defense! ๐Ÿ˜› ). It’s like summer in a jar!

I had this beauty yesterday and I was so pleased with all the flavors. Chia seed pudding, layered with mango chunks, and mango-avocado cream.ย #happybellygoals

Again, I tried a recipe from the Healthy Happened book, and it is amazing! This time it was mango & avocado cream, and to be honest, I did not expect this combo to taste that good! So…shall we?ย 

Mango/avocado cream(serves 2):

  • 1 mango
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of a freshly squeezed lemon (1)
  • ยผ of a cup (60ml) of a plant based milk or water
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or 2 dates (optional)

Putย peeled mango, avocado, fresh lemon juice and plant based milk or water in a food processor. Blend them together until the mixture is thick and even. Taste it, and then, if you need it – now is the time to pour in the maple syrup or add the dates (for the sweetness). Process again until smooth, and voila!

So I took the cream, some chia puddingย (which I prepared a night before), some chunks of mango and layered it as a parfait. Solamita (the girl behind the Healthy Happened) suggests another type of layered chia pudding goodness – with some orange flavored granola! (That is on my to-do list, for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Oh, I wish I had this in my fridge right now…

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Oh those colors, they make me happy! Enjoy!

Love, V.โ™ฅ
