Coconut-Mango Chia Pudding

This chia seed pudding is a little richer and thicker than your typical chia pudding, which makes it just that much better! Enjoy it for breakfast, dessert or as a snack! It’s easy to pack up in a small glass jar to bring to work with you, or pack it up in a school lunch.

This chia pudding is balanced with healthy fats from the coconut and chia, loads of fibre from the chia seeds and mango, and beta-carotene from the mango. You can’t go wrong!

You’ll need:

  • 1 can coconut milk (use the full-fat coconut milk)
  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 mango, chopped into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • Add a bit of heat with 1/2 grated fresh ginger (optional)

Pour the coconut milk into a medium sized bowl, and stir it well, making sure you get rid of all the lumps.

Add in chia seeds and maple syrup, if you are using it, and mix until they are evenly distributed.

Stir in mango.

Cover and refrigerate overnight. This is when it’s going to thicken up as the chia seeds absorb the water from the coconut milk.

Serve topped with you choice of:

  • Fruit (pomegranate, raspberries, kiwi, banana, strawberries, etc.)
  • Raw Nuts or seeds (hemp hearts, Brazil nuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, pecans)
  • Coconut flakes
  • A bit of maple syrup
  • Or nothing at all! It’s delicious on its own!
