Mango Chia Seed Pudding

Mango Chia Seed Pudding. I can only have so many bites of puddings/yogurts/mousse I think it’s a texture thing….but I still love those first few bites. This is like a little treat that I pick at all day and it’s super easy and quick to make.
 
3/4 cup of almond milk 1/4 c coconut milk 1/4 c fresh mango. Purée in blender and pour in jar. Add 2-3 tbsp of chia seeds depending on how thick you like it. Put in fridge over night. When I’m ready to eat it I add almond milk and fresh fruit and sometimes pour some on top of a smoothie. You could also add granola or chopped nuts.

 

Seared Salmon Salad

Don’t be afraid to make this salad. It is amazing and is way easier than it looks to make plus it’s pretty quick if you do all the prep before hand. 
 
Add some mango mayo from @cleaneats_cleantreats or drizzle on oil and some lemon, S&P to mixed greens. Make some guacamole. Chop up mangos and cilantro. Cut up fresh salmon into filets (I bought mine at costco) drizzle avocado oil and season with pepper, garlic salt and fresh lime. Throw some avocado oil in a pan and heat to med high- high heat. Wait a min and throw on filets. Sear for 2-3 mins before flipping over. Cut into the thickest part of salmon to make sure it’s a light pink and flakey. Put on top of lettuce and top with guacamole mangos and cilantro. Squeeze some fresh lime to finish.

 

Lemon Blueberry Icecream

2 minute “ice cream.” I don’t love the overpowering taste of #nanaicecream so I had the brilliant idea to freeze some full fat coconut milk in ice cube trays and this ice cream was born.
 
6 cubes of frozen full fat coconut milk. 1/2 c frozen blueberries, juice from 2 slices of lemon. I threw it all in my @blendtec twister jar in speed 7 for 40 secs and BAM. Ice cream.

 

Macadamia Nut encrusted Chicken

 
Tonight’s dinner was amazing because it involved roasted vegetables. I had some left over mango mayo from @cleaneats_cleantreats and decided to put it to good use with this chicken. I may or May not have over cooked this chicken so watch it like a hawk, but it was still delish.
 
Make some basic paleo mayo #littlecoconuttyspaleomayo then turn it into mango mayo from #shannonsmangomayo marinate chicken in this for 2+ hours, but reserve some for drizzling on the top of cooked chicken. Chop up some macadamia nuts and coat both sides of the chicken with them. Cook at 450* for 20-30 minutes or BBQ. For the veggies I did red pepper, carrots and yellow onion. Coat with olive oil or avocado oil and add adobo seasoning or oregano seasoning or just salt and pepper. Drizzle Mayo on top of chicken before serving.
