Coconut Chia Pudding with Mango Puree
This Coconut Chia Pudding with Mango Puree is a healthy breakfast or dessert that only uses 6 ingredients! This will quickly become your favourite way to eat chia pudding!
This is one of my absolute favourite ways to enjoy eating chia pudding (besides my banana cream pie chia pudding!). When you dig your spoon in you get some creamy coconut chia pudding and a scoop of fruity mango puree in every bite!
How to make coconut chia pudding with mango puree
This is a pretty simple one to make. (Yay!) Here is what you’ll need:
- chia seeds
- coconut milk
- shredded coconut
- maple syrup
- vanilla extract
Start by preparing the chia pudding by mixing the chia seeds, coconut milk, shredded coconut, maple syrup and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Let the mixture sit for at least 30 minutes.
While the chia puddings sits, puree your mangos in a blender or food processor.
Pour some chia pudding into a small cup or jar and top with some mango puree.
Tips to make this recipe perfectly
- Make sure to use high-quality coconut milk for really nice and creamy chia pudding.
- Mix the chia pudding for a good 2-3 minutes with a fork or whisk to make sure the mixture doesn’t get clumpy
- Let the chia pudding sit for a minimum of 30 minutes so it has time to properly gel into a pudding.
- If you let the chia pudding sit in the fridge overnight and it becomes very thick, just add a bit more coconut milk or almond milk and mix it again.
- Use ripe sweet mangos for the puree. If your mangos are a bit tart, you may want to add a tablespoon of maple syrup or a sweetener to the mango puree
What does this chia pudding taste like?
Chia pudding has a similar texture to tapioca, with a creamy-like texture. Chia seeds themselves have no flavour really, so they will taste like whatever you flavour them with!
For this recipe, the chia pudding tastes like creamy coconut, which is delicious! Having the mango puree to pair with the chia pudding gives this recipe that vibrant fruity pop that compliments the richness and creaminess of the coconut chia pudding.

I haven’t tried this recipie yet, but had a question.
Is there a way to make the texture of chia pudding less …odd?
This is a strange question, I know, but I have made chia seed pudding once, and loved the taste, but the texture was really weird for me.
Hi Megan! Unfortunately that is just the texture of chia pudding, which you may not like. It has a similar texture to tapioca!
Mix the pudding at high speed in a blender and the seeds will be ground and not as noticeable.
Could not share this with anyone
haha! Gotta make a double batch next time 😉
Wow, what a treat! This recipe is so simple and yet so flavorful, creamy, and rich. I had the chia pudding for breakfast this morning, and wish I had made a double or triple batch! 🙂 I used full-fat coconut milk and honey instead of maple syrup because that’s what I had on hand. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe!
Thanks so much Caroline! So happy you enjoyed 🙂
Absolutely loved it! Simple , easy to make and healthy , I’m new to chia pudding but looking forward to trying all of your pudding recipes !
Thanks a Bunch
Oh I was wondering if you would be able to tell me where I could purchase your adorable glass jars you use with the rounded bottoms like the one for the coconut pudding/ mango.
Thanks for the review Maria! These jars are from weck
Absolutely loved this recipe! Very simple and easy. Most of the ingredients I already have on a regular basis.
Make sure to buy really soft and sweet mangoes 🙂 I had perfectly ripe ones and that really made the mango portion amazing. No need to add sugar.
Ripe mangoes definitely do the trick! Thanks for the kind review! 😊
Where I live its hard to get good, ripe mangos. Would frozen ones work or would it just not really be worth trying without the fresh ones?
Hi Jenn, yes frozen will work! If you find your frozen mangos not as flavorful, you can add a touch of honey or maple syrup to them to sweeten them
Sounds great! do you think this would freeze well?
Hi Christina, chia pudding doesn’t generally freeze well but you can store it in the fridge for up to a week!
Excellent, would not change 1 thing. Thank you
Thank you Dina! Glad you enjoyed!
The best chia recipe! Loved the mango topping to go with the chia. I’ve tried other chia recipes that are just the chia pudding alone which I find tastes ok, but with the mango puree it makes all the difference!
Is the coconut milk the kind for drinking or cooking?
Hi Mary, I use the kind for cooking (from a can) but you can use either, both will work!
This chia pudding looks like the perfect breakfast!! I especially love that mango puree, it’s so creamy 🙂
Thanks so much Sarah! The mango puree on top is my favourite!
Oh my goodness, the radiance of that mango puree!! Absolutely stunning, Jess, and I love how easy this is yet so elegant!
Thanks Britt! This is one of my favourite ways to eat chia pudding!
