Mango and coconut chia pudding

I love mangoes! I was recently in Queensland (where I’m from and where my family live) and my dad has about 6 mango trees near his house. They are owned by a local fruit shop owner and they’ve given dad permission to pick them. So we picked them straight from the tree with dad’s handmade mango picker. One person had to catch them while the other hooked the mango and pulled it free from the tree. It was lots of fun and we shared our bags of mangoes with the rest of the family when we saw them over the Christmas break. That was the first time I had picked mangoes!

Homemade granola

I had a craving for granola this morning and was going to go to the shops to buy some BUT I had everything I needed in the cupboard so I made it instead. So yummy, so delicious and there are so many things you can do with it! It’s also simple and if you buy the ingredients in bulk you can make lots of batches and it can work out to be cheaper then buying it already packaged.  Continue reading Homemade granola
