Healthy mango chia pudding recipe

Need a quick, nutritious breakfast or a healthy dessert? Check out this sweet, delicious, and healthy mango chia pudding recipe that is very easy to prepare.

Chia seeds are widely known as an excellent superfood which means that they are nutrient dense. They’re loaded with nutrients that can have important benefits for your body and brain, with very little calories! 

One ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains:

  • Fiber: 11 grams
  • Protein: 4 grams
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s)
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.
  • This is particularly impressive considering that this is just a single ounce, equalling 28 grams or about two tablespoons. This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

On top of these, chia seeds are a whole-grain food, usually grown organically. They’re non-GMO and naturally free of gluten.


2 cups ripe mango 

1 cup oat milk (check out: Minor Figures Organic Oat M*lk)

3 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey


Take 1.5 cups of mango and add it to the blender or food processor. Process into a purée. Chop the remaining mango into chunks.

In a jar, mix oat milk, chia seeds, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or honey. Stir well to ensure that there are no clumps of chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour to make the chia pudding. 

Layer chia pudding and pureed mango evenly among 4 small glasses, and top with the mango chunks.

Add a sprinkle of cinnamon or finely sliced fresh mint leaves as toppings (optional).

Refrigerate overnight or until ready to serve.
