I’m hanging on to the last of those mangoes. With my dear life. Because I LOVE them plump beauties. Mangoes and I are BFFs. For the next one hundred and twenty six years and nothing can come between us. This Mango Chia Seed Breakfast Drink makes its way to our breakfast table at least three times a week these days. Because it’s perfect. It’s thick and smoothie-like so you can have big satisfying gulps, but it can also be spooned up if you have all the time in the world. I’m usually trying to make it to office at an embarrassingly late hour so this drink gets packed and ready to go in my favorite jar.
I usually pair it with Coconut Milk because coconut takes anything up a notch and mango and coconut were made for each other. Just like Mango and I. So what I’m essentially trying to say is Mango + Coconut + Me = Match made in heaven!
I guess that clears up any doubts that you may still have about how much I love this fruit. In case you missed it, please scroll up to the first paragraph again.
Pssst those are my mum’s hands. She was my muse while I was in Raipur for a couple of weeks. Chia Seeds add some major crunch and a pudding like texture to this drink. While they taste great, they are also extremely healthy because of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids present in them. Together with a spoonful of honey, this is one breakfast dish/drink/smoothie-type that you are going to want make over and over again. Once mango season runs out, I’m going to try this with strawberries? blueberries? bananas? kiwi? I have a long list.
I’m giving you a simple proportion for this recipe that you can try with different combinations.
Easy recipe proportions to make your own Mango Chia Seed Breakfast Drink or Smoothie. Fast, healthy and filling, this is a must-try breakfast dish!
- 1 Coconut Milk -Thick (Or Milk, Yogurt, Almond Milk, Soy Milk etc)
- 2 teaspoons Chia Seeds
- 1 teaspoon Honey (Maple Syrup or Sugar work too)
- Mango pureed Pulp (or any other Fruit Pulp)

- To assemble the drink, start by pouring mango pulp to fill up half the glass.
- Top it with the coconut milk and chia seed mixture.
- Refrigerate for at least half an hour or overnight.

For best results, make this drink the previous night and let it sit in the refrigerator.
Chia Seeds can be left to soak in the liquid for a couple of hours or overnight because they can absorb up to 10 times their weight in water.
