When the weather starts to get warm, I’m always on the hunt for breakfast items that are cold and refreshing. We chop up a lot of fresh fruit and keep it in our fridge for quick breakfasts.

But I usually need something with a bit more substance to keep me satisfied all morning.

I only discovered chia pudding last summer. It was at a restaurant as part of a breakfast board, and it had a little bit of fresh fruit on top. It was so tasty and hit the spot!

So, I figured it would taste awesome with mango! We like to top ours with freshly cut mango (we go through cases and cases of them in the summer months), but I know not everyone has access to mangoes.

That’s why this recipe uses mango sorbet. I admit that I used to eat mango sorbet for breakfast in college as a way to treat myself and declare my independence.

This is definitely a step up from that because of the chia pudding. The kids love it because they get to have “ice cream” for breakfast.

You can make the chia pudding ahead of time and store it in the fridge for 3 days. We like to use glass jars with lids to keep them extra fresh. Then, we can just grab it and top it with sorbet. Super easy.

It takes this basic chia pudding recipe to a whole other level! Here is a super easy mango chia seed pudding recipe you will want to eat every single morning or as a mango dessert during a hot summer day.

Mango Pudding with Chia Seeds Notes

If you want to meal prep, you can refrigerate overnight and keep it in a mason jar so it stays good. If you are using fresh ripe mangoes instead of mango sorbet, wait until you are ready to eat to combine.

You can also add some shredded coconut flakes or other fruit as well. The chia pudding taste is more of a neutral flavor. If you don’t like the chia pudding taste, try adding some mango puree inside, maple syrup, or agave nectar to sweeten it up.

You don’t have to use coconut cream. Alternatives can include canned coconut milk, cashew milk, unsweetened almond milk, or oat milk. Either full-fat coconut milk or light coconut milk work, and each has its benefits. The coconut mango chia pudding makes for a delicious breakfast!

Include some fresh mango inside your pudding to create a fun layer chia pudding! Ground cardamom will also taste super good inside.
