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.
