Mango Pannacotta- Easy No Bake Dessert

Easy Mango Pannacotta

Mango season is upon us and it’s almost blasphemous not to celebrate it!Quick and Easy Mango Pannacotta has become my weekly dessert!

Chia Pudding with Tropical Fruits and Walnuts

Chia Pudding

Have you heard of chia?and wondered what it was? I came across this while on my whole 30 diet as a healthy substitute to grains.These are seeds which when soaked in a liquid change from opaque little balls to plump jelly bomb like balls.They soak up the liquid they are soaked in.

Those little balls in the falooda are Chia Seeds. But I didn’t make the …
