We have been enjoying chia seeds for years! They are a nutritious addition to smoothies, work as a vegan egg substitute in baking, combine with fruit for a nutritious jam, and work as a digestion drink in water. However, chia pudding is our favorite way to use these small but mighty seeds. And there are so many delicious ways to make it! 

Mango chia pudding is a delightfully tropical and nutritious treat perfect for any time of day. Whether you’re looking for a satisfying breakfast, a wholesome snack, or a nutritious dessert, this recipe ticks all the boxes. Made with simple ingredients like coconut milk, chia seeds, and fresh mango, this pudding is delicious and packed with health benefits.

Health Benefits of Mango Chia Pudding

Mango chia pudding not only tastes amazing but also offers numerous health benefits:

  • Rich in Nutrients: Chia seeds are packed with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and various vitamins and minerals. Coconut milk adds creaminess and provides healthy fats.
  • Antioxidant Power: Mangoes are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C, which helps boost your immune system and fight oxidative stress.
  • Gut-Friendly: The combination of chia seeds and coconut milk promotes gut health due to their fiber content, which supports digestion and regularity.
  • Energy Boost: This pudding makes for a satisfying and energy-boosting meal or snack, thanks to the combination of carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein.

Coconut milk Mango Chia Pudding is a nutritious plant-based breakfast, snack, or dessert with tropical flavors. Chia pudding is a great option for meal prep. This recipe features layers of chia pudding, mango puree, yogurt, and mango chunks for a delicious and healthy treat any time of day.

A glass filled with chia pudding topped with yogurt and mango puree and mango chunks with pink edible flowers. The meal-prep glass has a wooden spoon attached.


  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Organic liquid stevia, maple syrup, or other sweetener
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced (or 1 cup frozen mango chunks)
  • 5 oz. plain or coconut Greek yogurt (optional)
  • Coconut chips, nuts, or granola for topping (optional)


  1. Whisk together the coconut milk and chia seeds in a bowl or jar. We whisk them right in meal-prep jars (see link below). Add your preferred sweetener to taste and whisk in. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes so that the chia seeds begin to absorb the liquid. Whisk again and ensure the chia seeds are well combined. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or overnight. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and create a pudding-like consistency.
  2. While the chia seed mixture is chilling, make the mango puree. Reserve a few chunks of mango for serving. Blend the rest of the fresh or frozen mango chunks in a blender until you achieve your desired consistency, smooth or chunky. You can add a splash of water or coconut milk to help with blending.
  3. Once the chia seed mixture has set up and the mango puree is ready, it’s time to assemble your pudding. Start by layering the chia pudding with spoonfuls of mango puree in serving glasses or bowls. You can also add a dollop of plain or coconut yogurt between layers for extra creaminess.
  4. Finish off your mango chia pudding by topping it with fresh mango chunks. You can enjoy the pudding right away or refrigerate it until you’re ready.


Chia pudding lasts 3-4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. We recommend assembling the mango chia pudding parfaits the same day you're eating them as the mango may not last as long as the chia pudding.

Tasty Additions

Chia pudding is even tastier with a bit of crunch. Consider adding any of these toppings:

  • Sliced toasted almonds
  • Toasted dried coconut shavings
  • Granola
