My mango chia pudding recipe is such a great treat that needs just four simple ingredients: chia seeds, canned coconut milk, agave, and mango. Surprisingly, all my kids love mangoes and when I make this mango-based chia pudding they get really excited. They all come up with their own toppings but I love mine with some added fresh mangos 🥭 on top.

My Pro Tip

Recipe Tip

  1. Properly soak the chia seeds: To ensure a smooth and creamy texture in your chia pudding, it’s important to properly soak the chia seeds. Mix the seeds with the liquid (such as milk or yogurt) and let them sit for at least 15 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and form a gel-like consistency.
  2. Use the right liquid-to-chia ratio: The ratio of liquid to chia seeds is crucial for achieving the desired consistency. A general guideline is to use a 1:4 ratio, meaning 1 part chia seeds to 4 parts liquid. But, you can adjust the ratio to your preference, depending on whether you prefer a thicker or thinner pudding. Just remember to maintain a balance to avoid a pudding that is too watery or too thick.
  3. Add flavor and sweetness: While chia seeds have a mild taste on their own, you can enhance the flavor of your chia pudding by adding ingredients such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or fruit puree. To sweeten your pudding, you can use natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar. Experiment with different flavors and sweeteners to find your favorite combination.
  4. Allow time for proper chilling: After mixing the ingredients, it’s essential to let the chia pudding chill in the refrigerator for a sufficient amount of time. This allows the chia seeds to fully absorb the liquid and develop a pudding-like consistency. Ideally, let it chill for at least 2-3 hours or overnight. If you find the pudding is too thick after chilling, you can thin it out with a little more liquid before serving.

frequently asked questions

How long does chia pudding last in the fridge?

If stored correctly, Chia seeds will last 5-7 days in the fridge.

Why are my chia seeds not expanding in milk?

If your chia seeds are not expanding it is possible that the liquid you used is too thick and it doesn’t have enough liquid for the chia seeds to absorb.

Why is my chia pudding slimy?

If your chia seeds turn out too slimy then maybe the consistency is not right. You may have added fewer chia seeds and too much liquid. That will result in a watery, slimy texture instead of a pudding-like texture.
