Blogging Hiatus.....



Dear friends, I am taking a blogging hiatus.

I feel I've lost my wit and my ability to express through words. My mind has gone into a silent mode while I am contemplating on other things in life. I have always aimed at delivering good quality blog posts. It will be a disappointment to myself and the readers if I publish posts which are written halfheartedly. Probably, I need a month or two to breathe, to settle down and to compose myself. Till then, this space will be silent. This silent period shall give me time to refocus and come up with fresh ideas to continue what I began in the first place.

And I will be back. Oh, for sure!

Thank you for all your support.

Chia Seeds, Coconut and Mango Pudding!


Who doesn't love chia seeds? I know I do. You get this gelatinous texture without using any synthetic jelly powder. Chia seeds are sooo good for you especially during summer time as it helps to cool off your body. Combining it with coconut milk and mango makes it simply divine! Let's get into the recipe right away.

Ingredients.....


Chia Seeds - 1/4 cup

Coconut Milk - 1/2 cup

Brown Sugar - 3/4 cup

Mangoes - 2 medium sized

Desiccated Coconut - For garnish

Salt - A pinch


Let's Begin.....

1. Soak the chia seeds in water for 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Add brown sugar to coconut milk and stir till it dissolves completely.
3. Cut the mangoes into cubes.
4. Strain the chia seeds to remove the excess water.
5. Mix in the chia seeds with the sweetened coconut milk.
6. Fill up your favorite glass with the chia seeds and coconut milk mixture. Top it up with the cubed mangoes and as a final touch, sprinkle some desiccated coconut for some extra crunch.
7. Placed in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes and best served cold.

Taste Test.....

It was soooo YUMMY! Light and creamy with sweet, tangy mangoes. Mangoes and coconut milk are a match made in heaven. The gelatinous texture of the chia seeds really tickles your palate. A perfect summer snack/dessert. It's good for you and tasty. What more could I ask for? It's so easy to prepare, doesn't involve any cooking and you can clean up in a jiffy. Make this for your friends and family or give yourself a treat with this easy pudding. I would love to hear your feedback. Till I see you next week with a new recipe. Don't forget to keep trying the #IndependenceARMy Challenge. Enjoy your summer everybody!

Cleanse Through July!


Everybody deserves a cleanse! A physical cleanse, a mental cleanse and an emotional cleanse. It is our responsibility to take care of our precious body, mind and soul. Would you be surprised if I told you that it can be done in one day? Plausible. Yogic cleansing has changed lives and I have seen it with my own pair of eyes. I will stand by it any day. Read about my experience and how cleansing changed my life here and here. Good things are meant to be shared. My life has been transformed and I wish the same for you. Hence, I would like you to experience the joy of cleansing your body, mind and emotions NEXT WEEK!

The location is to die for, an opportunity to blend with nature while you cleanse yourself.

"With the oil still in my mouth and walking about slowly on the grass, I got to experience the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen in my life. The air was cool but I could feel the warm light from the sun. The garden is located near a lake, the soft rays of the rising sun made the surface of the water to twinkle like crystals. The clear sky was filled with transcending colors from baby blues to hues of pink and lilacs and golden yellows mixed with soft oranges. Nature's form of art. The choice of location was just perfect. There couldn't be a better way to start my day"

Challenge Time! Get those Arms Ready!


Although I enjoyed the Summer Splits Challenge, I could not commit to it fully because I became ill halfway through the challenge. That's not an excuse to give up. Time to take up the July challenge. It's all about the arms this month. I have to admit, I have jello arms. My arms are probably the weakest in my entire body. Scorpion pose and handstands are almost impossible in my dictionary. Well, I may be exaggerating, because I have built a lot of strength and stamina in one year. But not quite there yet. Nothing is going to crush my spirit. I am going to be tackling the #Independence ARMy challenge and the 30 day arm challenge for the whole month of July. Don't forget to tag me in your pictures using @a_yoginis_life on Instagram. Join me and let's do this together. Girl Power!
