Coconut Mango Chia Pudding

DF

Thick and creamy mango chia pudding with layers of coconut milk chia pudding and mango puree. You’ll love the fresh, tropical flavor!

We recently got back from our Grand Cayman babymoon trip. We stayed at the Kimpton Seafire resort and they had these little cups of mango chia pudding. I immediately knew I needed to come home and recreate this tasty, tropical, healthy breakfast! It reignited my love of chia pudding so I decided to do a Chia Pudding Week and it kicks off today! Who’s excited?!

Two jars of chia pudding layered with mango puree and topped with toasted coconut flakes.

What Does Chia Pudding Taste Like?

Chia pudding tastes like… pudding! The chia seeds have a very neutral flavor so the final flavor depends on the milk you choose and the flavors you mix in! I decided to use coconut milk in this recipe to make it extra thick, rich and go with the tropical theme. And then of course, there are layers of mango puree which take this chia pudding to the next level. Mmm I want to eat this all summer long!

Ingredients in Coconut Mango Chia Pudding

  • light coconut milk (from a can)*
  • chia seeds
  • maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • mango
  • toasted coconut flakes

*Note: full fat coconut milk gets suuuuper thick so I like using light coconut milk for this recipe!

How to Make Mango Chia Pudding

In a mason jar or bowl with a lid, stir together the coconut milk, chia seeds and maple syrup. Let the mixture sit for about five minutes and then stir again to break up any clumps. Cover and place the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I like to do this step the night before and let it sit in my fridge all night!

While the coconut chia pudding is setting, peel the mango and remove the flesh. If you’ve never worked with fresh mango before, don’t be intimidated! Start by peeling all of the skin off the mango with a knife. I then like to hold the peeled mango with a paper towels so it doesn’t slip all over the place and carefully cut the flesh away from the pit. The pit is giant and is a similar shape to the mango… as you begin cutting, you’ll notice the pit pretty easily! Place the mango flesh in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

To assemble your coconut mango chia puddings, grab two jars, bowls or glasses and spoon chia pudding into each. Top with a layer of mango puree. Continue to layer chia pudding and mango puree until you’ve used up everything! Sprinkle with a few pieces of toasted coconut flakes on top and enjoy. The mango chia pudding will keep in the fridge for at least 3-4 days so you can meal prep these little cups in advance.

      Love this recipe. Instead of coconut flakes, I topped it with tropical granola and drizzled some honey.

        Hey Sandrea – It should keep fresh for about 3-4 days in the fridge.

      Love love love this! Mangoes are one of my favourite fruits and it’s such a good way to use it when you have buckets to use before the end of the season. I personally use the cup method for cutting mangoes, I find it easier
