I've made this dessert a few times and each time it's been a huge success with different people. It is very easy to make and uses a few ingredients—all which are easy to get. You will need a blender or a food processor.
- 1 ripe large mango
- 2-3cms fresh ginger or to taste
- 2tbsp chia seeds
- 1 ripe pear cut into small chunks or raspberries (optional)
- Nuts of choice
- Figs or dates or apricots
- Pinch of sea salt
- Soya yoghurt or another yoghurt of choice
- Blend the cut mango pieces and ginger in a blender until a smooth pulp has formed.
- In a bowl add the mango/ginger pulp and add the chia seeds and mix well—set aside for the moment.
- In a blender or food processor blitz the nuts, oats, dried fruit and sea salt. The quantities are up to you. You want to create a ground-up mixture of the three that when compressed begins to stick together.
- Add the nut/oat/dried fruit mixture into the final serving glass or bowl. Press the mixture down. It should be about five millimetres high.
- Add the mango and chia seed mixture. This layer needs to be quite deep—unless it's in a small container.
- Add a few chunks of pears or raspberries and leave the desserts in a fridge for a few hours.
- Before serving top with a thin layer of soya or other yoghurts
Experiement with different fruits, add some dark chocolate, vary the layers—have fun!
