Simple Mango Chia Pudding | Nutrition Stripped

In the 3 years Nutrition Stripped has been in this digital world, it’s odd that I’ve only shared one chia seed pudding recipe when I typically make chia seed pudding on a weekly if not daily basis! I’m putting a stop to that today by adding one of my favorite chia seed puddings I’ve been making this winter to get out of my winter weather funk. It’s my way of tricking my body into thinking that I’m actually enjoying this on a beach somewhere in the tropics, but I digress I’m in Nashville and it’s freezing!


I had the best tasting mangoes I’ve ever had while in Thailand, they truly tasted like candy it was incredible. On my travel bucket list this year includes revisiting Thailand and going to India for sure amongst others like Copenhagen, London, NYC, and Australia. That’s a bold travel list, eh? If any of you have been to India I’d LOVE to hear your experiences, advice, and anything that helped you travel there. Okay, back to mangoes. Mangoes are one of my favorite tropical fruits, I’d have to say it’s about #3 or #4 after digestive friendly pineapples and papayas! Just as all fruit and vegetables that are in the same color family they tend to have similar nutrient profiles and nutrition in them- for example the yellows and oranges in produce represent vitamin A, beta-carotene, and typically vitamin C as well. Mangoes are no exception, they’re great sources of vitamin A, C, K, beta-carotene, folate, choline, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and fiber. Like all tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, bananas, guava, etc.; they’re also higher in sugar than other fruits like apples and berries. No worries, my rule of thumb when eating higher sugar fruits is to make sure you’re eating it alongside protein, healthy fat or both of them. This chia seed pudding is a great combination of healthy fats, fiber, and protein all aimed at helping your body balance blood sugars even more. Hooray for food combining!

I have a beautiful chia seed pudding in the Nutrition Stripped Cookbook that’s a great baseline for chia puddings and going over the basics, BUT you’ll have to wait for the fall of 2016 for that one. If you’re in the NS Society you already have a staple chia seed pudding that I routinely make and I’ve been loving your remakes and creations using it!

Tips: double the batch and make breakfast for your busy week! Something we do and talk all about in the Society (not a member, sign up here).

Simple Mango Chia Pudding
Recipe type: dessert, breakfast
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
A simple chia seed pudding with coconut milk, coconut, fresh mint, and fresh mango.
  • 4 tablespoons chia seed
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 whole mango, diced
  • ½ inch knob fresh ginger, minced
  • Garnish: fresh mint, shredded unsweetened coconut, fresh lime, sliced kiwi, fresh raspberries
  1. Soak the chia seeds with minced ginger, vanilla, and both the almond milk and coconut milk for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally until a gel forms. You can make your chia seed pudding thicker by reducing the liquid or adding more liquid to make it thinner- I like these ratios used here.
  2. Simply pour the chia seed pudding into 2 serving glasses (serves 2), top with diced mango and top with garnishes above.
  3. Store in the fridge as a leftover, enjoy chilled or at room temperature. Store on the go in a mason jar with a lid.

    I love chia pudding but I never think to make it often enough. If I think ahead, I make little containers to have as a snack for lunch/dessert for a a week. I’m definitely a fan of bananas and cacao nibs in mine as well, but this one with mangoes looks SO GOOD.

    I’m actually going to India for the first time this fall too, on a yoga/service retreat in Rishikesh. Kind of want to stalk this area to see if anyone has good tips. Thailand is definitely on my list as well.

    • McKel Hill

      Me too! I always forget about chia pudding but it’s such a classic and so delicious. I’m glad this re-inspired you Iris! I’m so jealous of your trip to India, have a beautiful time xx M

  • Rachel

    Love anything tagged with both “breakfast” and “dessert”! I’m excited to try this! I put chia in my overnight oats every day but have never made chia pudding.

  • Shyla

    LOVE chia pudding! It’s a great alternative to regular pudding while enjoying a dairy-free lifestyle. This looks marvelous.. as I am also a tropical fruit lover! I really enjoy swirling in a scoop of pureed dates or coconut sugar and a large scoop of cacao powder to make a delicious chocolate pudding. It always cures that incessant chocolate craving.


  • Vanessa

    I love love love mangos and even more so I love simplicity! Thanks for the share, making this after my juice cleanse <3

  • Nancy

    Being allergic to almonds, would other milk alternatives work?

    • McKel Hill

      Great question! You can check out my Guide to Nut Milks which should help, you can also use seeds 🙂

      • Ashley

        I also cannot have any nut milks. The post you recommended didn’t really help. If we can use regular milk, would we just sub the same amount or up/lower it?

        Thank you!

        • McKel Hill

          Try hemp seed milk! 😉

  • Michelle

    I can’t wait to make this!
    I tried to order Tshirt that you mentioned at bottom of post and it said coupon has expired.

    • McKel Hill

      Hi Michelle- give the coupon code a go again! Just extended it 8 more hours!

  • Thea

    I recently spent three months in India, living in Mumbai. Not going to lie there were aspects that were hard to adjust to! However the one thing I miss so much is a yoga place called yoga house in bandra. They teach all styles and have a beautiful Ayurvedic cafe too! There is a great juice company I think called raw pressery, the only one in India which sells cold pressed juices. Also if you go, try to get an Ayurvedic massage. It was an odd experience, not going to lie but definitely something I’ll remember!
    I love the blog mckell, especially your in depth lifestyle posts, but of course keep the recipes coming they’re very inspiring!!

    • McKel Hill

      Thank you for sharing Thea! Would you recommend someone going solo to India or not safe enough? Thanks again for sharing your experience and kind words xx M

      • Heather

        Love this recipe! I’m currently in Mexico and the mangoes here are so sweet & delicious I can’t wait to try them with the chia mix! Also I spent 3 months traveling around southern India last winter. I was traveling with my boyfriend and would recommend traveling there with a friend/partner unless you are going somewhere like a retreat or ayervadic center and have an itinerary planned out. I’m a seasoned traveler and I was very happy to be there with someone though I’ve done a lot of trips on my own. India is very challenging and also very rewarding. Id be happy to answer any questions you might have 🙂

        • McKel Hill

          Thank you for your travel advice Heather, definitely still looking into it in more detail before committing 100%. Enjoy this recipe! x M

  • caitlin

    Just tried this one for the first time this morning and it was FABULOUS! One question… I think I may be a little dense here, I’d like to “favorite” this recipe for my dashboard, but I can’t figure out how… I’ve watched the video and I’m looking for the little heart, buuuuuuuut… I can’t find it. Any other help??? THANK YOU FOR THE FABULOUSNESS!!!

    • McKel Hill

      Great question Caitlin- as a Society member, you can only favorite recipes within the membership dashboard! It’s your exclusive feature not available to the public 😉

  • Vineeta

    Hey McKel, I am a regular at NS and I love your advice and recipes. You’re amazing! Keep going and you’re so going to go places (literally as well as figuratively!)
    As an aside I am an Indian living in New Delhi India and I’d be delighted to help if you need recommendations, suggestions, answers or just good company
    Lots of love and good wishes.

    • McKel Hill

      Thank you for the kind words Vineeta! I’m so glad you like the recipes and are sharing them- what recipes should I try that are your favorites from New Delhi!?

  • Miriam

    Is there anything else you can use other than the almond and coconut milk to soak the chia seeds in. I love chia seeds but cannot stand any type of milk product.

    • McKel Hill

      You can always use water or coconut water if you like! Hope that helps Miriam 🙂

  • Crystal MacLeod

    Hi! I just made something very similar but with coconut yoghurt. It tastes delicious but it hasn’t set. It’s just like yoghurt with stuff stirred through it. Will coconut milk make it set? At the moment I feel like it would be very sloppy but perhaps this is better for soaking into the seeds?

    • I’m not sure- I can’t speak to the recipe that you’re trying “similar” to this one! Chia pudding is different than coconut yogurt- wish I could help!
