Coconut Mango Chia Pudding 🥭🏝🌞
Have you tried making chia seed pudding?
It’s a great way to easily get all the benefits of those little chia seeds.
Coconut Mango Chia Pudding is an ultra-creamy indulgent (yet secretly very healthy) treat that tastes like it’s straight from an exotic island. 🥥🌴
Just what I needed this week 🙌
When was the last time you 1) bought a mango or 2) ate anything with mango in it?
✅ Not only do mangos bring a sweet and exotic flavor to the table, but they also contain a surprisingly long list of vitamins and minerals, as well as good-for-you antioxidants and plant compounds!
Takes just a few minutes of hands-on time to prepare chia pudding and it’s packed with a decent amount of protein and nutrients for a quick, on-the-go breakfast treat!
💪🏽You can always add some protein or collagen powder for an additional boost!
⚡️Throw a batch of these together the night before, cover, and set in the fridge overnight, then enjoy anytime the next day!
We REALLY love these for breakfast, snacks, and/or dessert at our house!
❓What’s your favorite way to eat chia seeds!?
👍🏾 Some researchers believe they are one of the MOST nutritious foods you can eat.
✅ They are packed with good-for-you fats and fiber, with a very mild taste.
Because of their incredible fiber content, they’ll keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours after eating. Just 1 ounce (28 grams) contains 11 grams of fiber!
👉🏾They are a good plant-based source of protein, may help with weight loss, and can help lower triglycerides, blood sugar, inflammation, and belly fat. They might also help raise your body’s good HDL cholesterol level.
💜 They also appear to help reduce blood pressure and they contain micronutrients that support bone health. 💪
👩🏾🍳 Chia seeds are easy to add to your diet – sprinkle them on salads, make a pudding by soaking them in liquid like our recipe below, or use them as a thickener in recipes. They also are a great addition to smoothies.
🍯 The sweetness factor is such a PERSONAL preference, so please consider this when adding in raw honey or maple syrup. Depending on your taste, you may want a bit more or less.
- 1 large ripe mango, diced
- 1 x 15oz can of unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/3 cup coconut water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup
- another ripe mango chopped for serving
Shake your can of coconut milk really well before opening it to incorporate the creaminess throughout.
Peel and slice your ripe mango into bite-sized cubes and place in a large bowl.
Add in all of the remaining ingredients.
Thoroughly stir to combine, then stir again. Chia seeds need to be combined very well with the other ingredients. Stir this mixture for several minutes to activate the chia seeds so that they gel up really well.
Transfer your mixture equally to 4 smaller glass jars. Seal with a lid.
If desired, top your pudding with additional chopped fresh mango immediately before serving.
