This delectable pudding is layered with chia seeds soaked in coconut milk and fresh mangoes, serve it for breakfast or dessert, you will be delighted.
The taste of this mango chia pudding depends on the type of milk you are using to make it. Chia seeds are neutral in flavor and they soak up the milk and get blend with the taste of the milk.
In the coconut milk mixture, I have also added yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract, but they are completely optional.
You can make the mixture overnight and keep and just layer it with fresh mangoes in the morning, making it a perfect weekday breakfast. We can call it Overnight Mango Coconut Chia Pudding.
Not only as breakfast, but it also makes for a great dessert, but that is also healthy and guilt-free. You can even add other fruits such as banana, berries, papaya, kiwi, etc with mangoes, to make it more nutritious and flavorsome.
This Pudding is:
- Perfect for your weekday breakfast.
- Creamy and delicious.
- Easy to make.
- Perfectly sweet.
- Served as a dessert too.
This is a very simple recipe, that required zero basically efforts! To make this yummy breakfast option, you will need:
Mangoes – This is the key ingredient of this pudding. I love how these sweet mangoes taste along with chia seeds and coconut milk mixture. Sometimes, I also like to add some other fruits with mangoes such as berries, kiwi, melon, etc, but this Mango version wins the game.
Coconut Milk – Use of coconut milk makes this breakfast pudding vegan friendly. We used canned coconut milk but you can definitely go for freshly made coconut milk. The taste will be far better. You can even use normal milk or any other plant-based milk instead of coconut milk.
Yogurt – Yogurt adds a nice creamy texture to the pudding. But if you are looking for a vegan version, skip this ingredient or add any vegan yogurt.
Chia Seeds – Loaded with antioxidants and protein, these tiny pearls are everything you want to take all those necessary nutrient intakes. Chia Seeds are really good for people following the Paleo Diet.
Vanilla Extract – It adds a nice vanilla twist to your pudding. It is always good to have some extra flavor, right?
Honey – This is completely optional. If you want your pudding to get sweetness only from the mangoes, you can completely avoid it. You can even use Maple Syrup as a vegan sweetener.

Frequently Asked Questions
All ingredients in this recipe are vegan friendly except the yogurt and honey.
You can easily replace the yogurt with any vegan yogurt like the soy yogurt, coconut yogurt or cashew yogurt, and honey with maple syrup.
You can even skip the yogurt and just soak the chia seeds in coconut milk.
Yes, you can definitely use the normal milk, but the coconut milk gives it a nice creamy texture and also a subtle coconut flavor.
But if you can’t get a hold of coconut milk, you can use normal milk or even almond milk.
Don’t add Mangoes if you are storing it in the fridge. The Chia coconut mixture stays good in the fridge for about 3-4 days in a sealed container. So take it out, add some more coconut milk, fresh mangoes and enjoy.
