Creamy mango chia pudding. This perfectly sweet and delicious pudding is only 4-ingredients and so healthy it doubles as breakfast or dessert.
These mango chia puddings are so cute!
And they’re so tasty Jaye and I were practically fighting over them.
These puddings fit perfectly in that category of breakfast/dessert. Perfect for breakfast or dessert. Now that’s a win if I ever saw one.
Everyone likes dessert but dessert is optional. Breakfast on the other hand? Mandatory.
So having dessert for breakfast can only be a good thing.
And when it’s chia pudding, it’s a super healthy breakfast/dessert too.
How to make mango chia pudding
These chia puddings are so easy to make.
Add some fresh mango to a blender or food processor and process into a purée. Then add chia seeds, coconut milk, maple syrup and the mango purée to a mixing bowl and whisk it together until smooth.
Then add in some chunks of fresh mango and stir in.
Place into the fridge for 15 minutes and then bring it out and give it a stir, and then put it back into the fridge for another 15 minutes and that’s it!
Divide the pudding between 4 serving glasses, top with some chunks of fresh mango and you have the most divine breakfast/dessert you could ever want!
The best chia pudding
We used canned coconut milk for this. The full fat variety. It really creates a super creamy texture here and makes this really rich and delicious.
You absolutely can switch this out for a light coconut milk or a different plant milk, but of course it will be less rich if you do, but still good.
We used maple syrup for the sweetener. Since there are 4 serves of mango chia pudding in this recipe, it works out to 1 Tbsp per serve. If you want to you can omit the maple syrup and see if the mango alone makes it sweet enough for you.
Then you can just drizzle some maple syrup over the top if it’s not sweet enough when you serve it.
I consider this pudding to be the perfect level of sweet, but if you are the type of person who tends to find many desserts overly sweet, then rather take the more cautious approach.
Fresh ripe mangoes are crucial for a perfect result in this recipe. They should be firm but yield to the touch and they should taste sweet and delicious.
So I hope you’ll love this mango chia pudding! It is:
- Perfectly sweet
- Super easy
- Perfect for breakfast or dessert
Keep leftovers stored in the fridge where they will stay good for a few days. So even if you’re only making this recipe for one, make the full portion and enjoy one a day for four days!
