I absolutely love chia seeds and chia pudding! I’ve been chia pudding for years and this coconut mango combination is always a favorite. It’s also my daughter Karina’s favorite chia pudding. If you would like to try some of my other chia puddings, try this Triple Berry Chia Pudding, Coconut Lime Raspberry Chia Pudding, or these frozen Raspberry Coconut Chia Pudding Pops!

Mango Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is so easy to make, you just combine all the ingredients and refrigerate overnight. It has a tapioca-like texture that I can’t get enough of. The little tiny chia seeds expand to more than 4 times their size when soaked in liquid.

They don’t really have much of a taste so they take on the flavor of whatever you add to them. The texture is similar to the seeds of a passion fruit. And in case you’re wondering, yes it’s the same chia seed used to make Chia Pets. This recipe was created back in 2012, but since I have been seeing chia pudding all over tik tok lately thanks to the Kim Kardashian chia pudding post, it seems to be trending again. And since it is, I thought this would be the perfect moment to re-shoot it and give the photos a face lift.

Is Chia Pudding Healthy?

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3s, the healthy fats we need. Two tablespoons of chia seeds contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins, minerals and fiber. Aside from making pudding, you can also add them to smoothies, muffins, and my favorite, I throw them in my overnight oats

How To Make Chia Pudding

To make chia pudding combine chia seeds with your liquid of choice; milk, dairy-free milk, fruit juice, etc and sweetener of choice. Mix well and let them sit 30 minutes. Then you will want to stir the seeds again so they don’t clump together. At this point you can add fruit, cover the container and refrigerate overnight. Divide in 2 bowls and enjoy.

The most important part of making chia pudding your own is knowing the ratio of chia seeds to liquid! I personally find the best results using 2 tablespoons of chia seeds with 1/2 cup liquid of choice.

  1. CAN you use frozen mango? And is chia considered more of a fat or carb?
