Many of us are probably itching to get back to the normal ebb and flow of our usual routines after sitting at home for almost 3 weeks of nationwide lockdown. I chose to make the most of the time spent at home by becoming creative in the kitchen and experimenting with food. During this challenging time we tend to snack more and it is good to treat yourself to something sweet but healthy. So, I delved into the delicious combination of mango, banana and chia seeds.
