Mango Pudding and Berry Parfait

I just had a friend message me asking if this recipe was still on the blog......and I couldn't find it! So I went searching and noticed that it had been moved to draft.  It has been in drafts now for a few years don't ask why I have no idea why it was saved as a draft on not still posted here on the blog. It's one of my very favorite recipes! Trust me if you like mango even a little you will find this recipe Heavenly.

So I am re-posting it and putting it here front and center because I'm sure there are many of you who have not tried this really heavenly dessert. And those of you who have I'm sure would love to make it again. Like my friend who just messaged me.....Kristi this is for you thanks for making me aware that it was missing from the blog.

Mango Pudding and Berry Parfait
3-5 Cups Fresh Mangoes
2 Heaping Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil (more if using more mango)
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Zest of one small lime
Juice of one small lime
1/2 Cup Agave or Pure Maple Syrup
Pinch of Salt
1 Cup fresh berries (I used strawberries can use any mixture of fresh berries you want)

Blend all ingredients except for the Berries and some of the mango (if you want it in with your layers of fruit) in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.  I slowly added the melted coconut oil while blender was running so it would mix in well before it started setting up.  After it is all mixed and creamy, transfer to a bowl and then Chill it in the fridge for at least 1-2hrs or overnight. Fill the cups with a layer of the pudding, a layer of fruit, then another layer of the pudding, doing as many layers as you want until full.  Top with a layer of fruit and fresh mint leaves.
This is so good an instant favorite!

This was the closest thing to heaven I've ever had! It was soooo super tasty. Pretty sweet, I used the maple syrup instead of the agave, but mixed with the strawberries and mango it was really good. I couldn't believe it was actually healthy.I put the granola stuff from here on top and it was super tasty, and I added some coconut to it too. A must try for sure, and I'll definitely make it again!

I must say that I stand corrected. My whole life I have stated that I don't like mangoes. And I really never have. UNTIL NOW!!! I decided to give this a whirl because we had some from bountiful baskets. I intended on giving it all to the kids. I licked the spoon once and now they are going to have to share! Thanks so much!!!

You know...this should come with a warning. I'm thinking something like this: WARNING!! EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE!! ONCE YOU TASTE THIS, YOU WILL NEED IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!! You know, nothing too alarming, but definitely up front and honest. ;-) No seriously, I made it last week and had to make it again this week b/c I couldn't stop thinking about it. Oh my.
