What ingredients do you need to make this mango chia pudding?

Coconut milk – the perfect duo for chia seeds and making chia pudding consistency

Fresh Mango – need we say more.  It’s gorgeous in colour, tastes like Summer and the combination of mango, coconut and passionfruit make this a delicious pudding.

Fresh Passion fruit pulp  – this gives the chia pudding that extra tropical look.

Coconut Yoghurt – adds that uniquely coconut flavour and a ribbon of white layer to extenuate the vibrancy of the yellow mango flesh.

Maple Syrup – natural sugar sweetener though not too much is needed

Chia Seeds – we’ve used the white chia seeds to keep the colour layers looking tropical white and yellow,  though you can use black chia seeds if you like too.

Recipe Notes

Full fat coconut milk is best for this recipe as it is inclined to set better. I wouldn’t use almond milk for this mango chia pudding.

Get an additional mango and cut into squares. Use the saved mango chunks to decorate instead.



How to make Mango and Passion Fruit Chia Pudding

Chia puddings are really very simple to make.  No cooking involved as the chia seeds do all the work of setting your pudding.

STEP 1. Firstly blitz up your mango to a pulpy consistency in a food processor (save half of the mango puree for decoration and layering) and pop in a bowl combine with your coconut milk, passionfruit, maple syrup, chia seeds and whisk until combined.

STEP 2. Cover with cling film and place into the fridge for at least a couple of hours or overnight.

What is the ratio of chia seeds to milk?

This can vary a lot.  Some milk such as coconut is rather thick-ish and when mixing with the chia seeds may set a little firmer.  The coconut milk has a higher fat content and will set slightly firmer in the fridge.

If using plant milk such as almond, the ratio I’ve used in the past is  1/4 chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid. This is in our 4 Ingredient Chia Pudding.

Our other Strawberry Chia Seed Puddings recipe has a larger amount of liquid.  1 can of coconut milk (the full fat version) plus one cup of strawberries that have been blitzed to a puree.  This recipe sets well overnight so will need at least 6-8 hours in the fridge.

It’s probably a test and measure when it comes to making chia puddings and how thick you want the pudding like consistency to be for your own individual tastes.



How long do I need to let my chia seeds soak in milk for?

When making chia pudding, it takes around 1-2 hours or you can leave it overnight to achieve the desired gel-like consistency as the chia seeds absorb the liquid quickly.

Is there a difference between black and white chia seeds?

Yes, black and white chia seeds have different properties. Compared to white chia seeds, black chia seeds are slightly smaller and have a more subtle taste.

Chia seeds that are white come in a larger size and have a nutty taste. You can make Mango Passion Fruit Chia Pudding using both black and white chia seeds, though the flavor may differ depending on which variety you choose.

I did find that the black seeds seem to set better but this may be just an observation.  Both do set well especially when left overnight in the fridge.


Topping Variations

Toppings for this Mango Passion Fruit Chia Pudding can include fresh mango chunks, frozen mango, coconut cream, maple syrup, coconut yoghurt, passionfruit pulp, zest of the rind of a lime, toasted coconut flakes, spoons of mango puree, honey and pretty much whatever you feel fits into your taste.

You can also add a tablespoon of maple syrup to sweeten the pudding on top if needed.
