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 fresh 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 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 go for freshly made coconut milk or low-fat canned coconut milk.
You can also use regular dairy milk or other plant-based milk like cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, etc., 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 contain 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 mango pudding.
Honey – This is entirely 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.
Health Benefits Of Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are tiny, edible seeds rich in nutrients and have several health benefits. They are an excellent fiber source, which helps keep you feeling full and aids in digestion. They are also great for controlling blood sugar.
Chia seeds are also packed with antioxidants, which can help to protect your body from damage caused by free radicals.
They are also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for maintaining heart health and brain function.
This is a great ingredient for healthy fats and extra protein.
