Creamy, delicious mango chia pudding from Wendy's Way to Health

Mango Chia Pudding

Servings 2 bowls



  • 1-11/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 mango, peeled & chopped
  • 1/3 small can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • walnuts, cashews or almonds and coconut flakes for topping
  • extra mango, or other fresh fruit as desired for topping


First make the chia gel:

  1. Combine the water and chia seeds in a bowl and stir well for a couple of minutes.

  2. Set aside for 20-30 minutes to allow the gel to set. Stir 3 or 4 times.

Then make the pudding:

  1. Put the mango pulp, coconut milk and vanilla in a blender and whiz until smooth and creamy.

  2. Add about half of the chia gel and evenly mix through the pudding. 

  3. Divide the pudding evenly into two bowls. Decorate with a handful of your favourite nuts and a sprinkle of coconut flakes.

Recipe Notes

When making the chia gel, start with 1 cup of water and add more at the end if the seeds don't look like they're fully expanded.

Keep any leftover gel in the fridge to use in smoothies or baking.

If you prefer, you can use Greek yoghurt instead of coconut milk.
