Chia Pudding

  • 40 grams (1.4 ounces) chia seeds
  • 160 grams (5.6 ounces or approximately 3/4 cup) coconut milk
  • 30 grams (1 ounce or approximately 2 tablespoons) jerusalem artichoke syrup or honey
  • 150 grams (5.3 ounces or approximately 1 cup) mango
  • 70 grams (2.5 ounces or approximately 1/4 cup) plain yogurt


  • Mixing Bowl

    Ensure it's large enough to comfortably stir the ingredients without spilling. A medium-sized glass bowl works wonders for mixing and displaying.

  • Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Precision is key! Use standardized measuring tools to get the perfect texture for your pudding.

  • Jars or Serving Glasses

    Opt for clear jars to showcase the beautiful layers. Mason jars are a stylish and practical choice.

  • Blender or Food Processor

    This is essential for making smooth mango puree. A handheld immersion blender works well, too.


Step 1

1. In a medium bowl, combine the chia seeds, coconut milk, and syrup or honey. Mix well to ensure the chia seeds are evenly distributed.

Step 2

Tip: Make sure to use coconut milk, not a coconut-containing plant-based drink, as it provides the necessary consistency and flavor.

Step 3

Step 4

2. Let the mixture sit for a couple of hours or preferably overnight in the refrigerator. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and form a pudding-like texture.

Step 5

Tip: Stir the mixture occasionally during the first hour to prevent the chia seeds from clumping together.

Step 6

Step 7

3. Prepare the mango puree: blend the mango until smooth. Taste it and add syrup or honey if it's not sweet enough.

Step 8

Tip: Fresh, ripe mangoes work best for a naturally sweet puree.

Step 9

Step 10

4. Assemble the pudding in jars by layering the chia pudding, mango puree, and plain yogurt. The order of the layers is not important.

Step 11

Tip: For a visually appealing presentation, aim for two layers of chia pudding and mango puree, with a middle layer of yogurt.
