Mangoes – This is the key ingredient of this pudding. I love how sweet mangoes pair with chia seeds and coconut milk mixture.
Pick up ripe and juicy mangoes to make this pudding. Sharing my little secret with you all, I always go for Indian mangoes as they are the sweetest and juiciest. You will get them at an Indian store near you or even online. Once you will try them, there is no looking back.
Coconut Milk – I used canned full-fat coconut milk which makes this pudding super creamy, but you can definitely go for freshly made coconut milk or low-fat canned coconut milk.
You can also use regular dairy milk or any other plant-based milk instead of coconut milk.
Yogurt – Yogurt adds a nice creamy texture to the pudding. Replace dairy yogurt with any plant-based yogurt for a vegan version.
Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, natural fibers, and protein. This pudding is a great dish to include these tiny pearls in your diet.
Vanilla Extract – It adds a nice vanilla twist to your pudding.
Honey – This is completely optional. If you want your pudding to get sweetness only from the mangoes, you can avoid it. You can also replace honey with maple syrup or agave nectar as a vegan sweetener.
How To Make Mango Chia Pudding
Combine 300 ml coconut milk, 1 cup yogurt, 4 tablespoon chia seed, 2 tablespoon honey, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl with a tight-fitting lid.
Note – Adjust the amount of sweetener according to your requirement.
Cover the bowl and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
Stir the mixture and cover the bowl with the lid.
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
Note – If the pudding looks thick after refrigerating, add some more coconut milk to it and mix well.
Once you are ready to serve, add 2-3 tablespoon of chopped mangoes to a serving glass.
Top with the coconut milk chia seed mixture.
Top with some granola (optional) and some more chopped mangoes and serve immediately.
Note – You can puree some of the mangoes and mix the puree with the chia seeds mixture. You can also layer the chia seed mixture and mango puree in alternate layers.
Don’t add mangoes to the mango chia seed pudding if you are storing it in the fridge. The chia coconut milk mixture stays good in the fridge for about 4-5 days in a sealed container.
If it has thickened after refrigerating, add some more milk and adjust the consistency. Layer the mango cubes once ready to serve.
