Mango Coconut Chia Pudding

For a fruitier twist on my coconut chia seed pudding recipe, add a mango into the blender with it for this Mango Coconut Chia Seed Pudding. It keeps you fueled for hours and crushes sugar-cravings. It also tastes absolutely divine, naturally sweetened with mango, and rich and creamy thanks to the coconut milk.
