Coconut Mango Chia Pudding {Vegan, Gluten Free}

 

Today we are sharing a taste of the tropics and I swear I had every intention on making the most delicious lychee coconut smoothie but unfortunately, the grocery gods were not on my side and lychee is simply no where to be found in the booming metropolis of Oswego, NY.  The reason I was so dead set on using lychee is because it’s one of the few fruits that are low histamine plus lychee is kind of one of those things you don’t see being used too often and I figured it would be fun to incorporate into a recipe. 

Alas, I had to settle for mangoes.  While tropical, they aren’t low in histamine.  I honestly don’t know that for a fact since it’s approved on some lists but not on others  but it’s what I had to settle for since pineapples and all other citrus fruits are out. 

For whatever reason I also switched my original plan from a smoothie to chia pudding…most likely because chia seeds have come up a lot in my low histamine research as being one of the only approved seeds to consume.  I think I started subconsciously craving it and all the sudden found myself whipping it together the other night!

While not sip worthy like a smoothie, I still think it makes for a delicious and refreshing way to enjoy the taste of the tropics for breakfast.
