New Recipe: Mango Chia Pudding

Here in Australia Summer is fast approaching which brings with it long days filled with sunshine, holidays, fun and an abundance of seasonal produce including mangoes. Extremely delicious and versatile, mangos are great as a snack on their own, a tasty addition to your salad, great in ice blocks and smoothies and forms the basis of our chia pudding below.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 mango, flesh only
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 5 tablespoon chia seeds


  1. To a food processor add mango cheek, coconut milk, rice malt syrup and lemon juice. Blitz for 1 minute or until well combined.
  2. Add chia seeds and stir into the mango mixture, stirring regularly for 15 minutes.
  3. Divide between four glass jars and refrigerate overnight before serving with your choice of toppings such as coconut yoghurt, berries, nuts and seeds. Remaining chia puddings will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

    I am going to go home, pull out a couple of jars and get making! Breakfast is sorted!
    Would you recommend almond milk as an alternative if coconut milk is not a preference?

    I switched the lemon for lime for a truly tropical flavour 😁

    I’ve been having this all week – I get 2 serves out of the above but i’m always still hungry and will eat 6 rice crackers with tahini and honey after. Do you have any advice on how to feel more full? and not need the rice crackers?

    Hello Josie, if you find that you are still hungry after the chia pudding I would try topping it with some additional good fats such as 1-2 tablespoons ofchopped nuts or a tablespoon of coconut yoghurt. Take the time to eat slowly which will also help enable your digestive system to not only process it but feel full.
