Mango and Coconut Chia Pudding

Today’s recipe is a very simple Mango and Coconut Chia Pudding that you can eat for breakfast or as a midday snack. This Mango & Coconut Chia Pudding is healthy and easy to make and is loaded with sweet mango flavour. You only need a handful of ingredients and a bowl and I have adapted it for you in case you don’t have a blender.

Mango and Coconut Chia Pudding

I generally make chia pudding with almond milk, but I think coconut and mango go very well together in this recipe.

In fact, the combination of flavours and the texture of the chia pudding remind me of a Mango, Coconut Ice Cream and Sticky Rice dessert that I had in Thailand a few years back.

This Mango and Coconut Chia Pudding recipe starts with the key ingredient – mango – which you will need to blend / mash into a puree. You will then need to soak your chia seeds in coconut milk, maple syrup and just a touch of vanilla.

You can make this Mango & Coconut Chia Pudding recipe with full-fat coconut milk if you are looking for a richer & creamier chia pudding, but coconut cream can be high in fat, which is why I use light coconut milk for this recipe.

Health benefits of Chia Seeds

I eat a lot of chia seed pudding because they are an excellent protein source — especially for people like me who eat little to no animal products.

They are high in quality protein – in fact much higher than most plant foods. 💚 Plus they help you get the fibre you need in the day, without having to eat any grains / wheat.

If you aren’t a fan of Mango’s, why not try my Peanut Butter and Jelly Chia Pudding recipe instead?

Have a great week!

Love,

Cat
