Chia Seed Mango Pudding- Guilt Free Dessert

With this unbearable heat your appetite too goes for a toss. This chia seed pudding recipe has become my go-to breakfast/afternoon snack. It’s cool, creamy, and lightly sweet. Even my 10 year old keeps demanding it from time to time as an evening snack. Topped with fresh fruits with a drizzle of maple syrup and vanilla, this tastes like a dessert but with goodness of fibre, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. 

Chia Pudding Recipe Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this chia pudding recipe:

  • Chia seeds, of course! I have used black chia seeds but you can use white chia seeds as well.
  • Coconut milk or almond milk – I like to use this light homemade coconut milk in this recipe because it makes the pudding extra-rich and creamy, but if you don’t have any on hand, don’t worry! Almond milk is also a great choice.
  • Maple syrup – I mix some into the chia seed pudding to sweeten it naturally. 
  • Vanilla – To add more flavour. You can choose to add cinnamon too.
  • Mango: It’s summer- The Mango Season! You can take any seasonal fruit of your choice. Either purée it or finely chop it. Totally upto you.
