The Benefits of Chia Seeds:

Omega Fatty Acids – help to decrease inflammation in the body, promote cell regeneration and help with brain function

Fiber – to keep things regular down there if you know what I mean!

Protein – 5 grams per one ounce serving! Thats 5 grams per 2 tbsp.

Pretty impressive, huh? Now let’s get on to this delicious recipe…

Mango Coconut Chia Pudding Ingredients

This mango chia pudding is made with just 3 simple ingredients and no sugar added!

  • Canned coconut milk – I used full fat coconut milk for extra healthy fats and a super creamy pudding. 
  • Chia seeds
  • Chopped mango – fresh or frozen work.

Perfect Chia Pudding… Every Time

Chia pudding is super simple to make but I do have a couple of tricks to make sure it turns out perfectly! If this mango chia pudding doesn’t float your boat, here are some adjustments you can make:

Use fresh chia seeds – the brand doesn’t necessarily matter but I’ve found that fresh seeds absorb the most liquid!

Experiment with different milks – I used canned coconut milk for this recipe so the end result will be a thick, creamy consistency. If you prefer a thinner consistency, try almond or oat milk!

Leave enough time – I prefer to let the chia pudding sit in the fridge overnight to make sure as much liquid as possible is absorbed. I know some sites say you can let it sit less so experiment for what works best for you! 

Add flavor – This might be a no brainer but plain chia seeds + milk will be quite boring. Don’t forget to add in mix-ins of your choice! For this recipe, I went with mango and cinnamon but get creative if you want to amp up your chia pudding.
