Prep Time: 5 minutes            Cook Time: 5 minutes + 2 hours soaking time          Yield:  1 jar   


  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2  cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 cup cubed mango
  • 1 tbsp. dried unsweetened coconut, shredded
  • 1 tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish


  1. In a large mason jar or container, add the chia seeds, milk, yogurt, vanilla extract, and honey. Whisk until thoroughly combined, scraping the sides of the jar with a spoon or spatula, if needed.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium-low heat, toast the coconut and almonds until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Let cool and store in a zip-top bag or small Tupperware container until ready to use.
  4. When ready to eat, transfer the pudding into a serving bowl.
  5. Top each with mango, shredded coconut, toasted almonds, and fresh mint leaves.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk instead of low-fat milk for different flavors and dietary preferences.
  • Replace mango with other fruits like berries, kiwi, or pineapple for a seasonal twist.
  • For a crunchier texture, add granola or a sprinkle of chia seeds on top just before serving.
  • The chia pudding can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, making it a great option for meal prepping.
