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?!
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)*
maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
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!
