Mango Lassi Chia Pudding


Mango Lassi Chia Pudding

A light and summery chia pudding that comes together with just a few ingredients. This pudding highlights the flavors of an indian mango lassi with cardamom, mangoes and saffron. It is a gorgeous addition when you entertain guests for brunch.


  • 3/4 cup Greek Yogurt – 170 g
  • 1/2 cup Kesar mango pulp – 140 g
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cardamom
  • A pinch Saffron
  • 3 tbsp Chia seeds – 37 g
  • 1 tbsp Slivered almonds or pistachios


  • Whisk yogurt, mango pulp, cardamom powder and saffron until smooth. Check the yogurt and mango mixture for sweetness. I use canned mango pulp from my local indian grocery store and it requires no additional sweetener. However, you can add a little maple syrup, granulated sugar, or honey if necessary.
  • Stir in chia seeds and give it a good mix to make sure the chia seeds are distributed evenly.
  • Pour the mixture into two serving glasses and refrigerate overnight or until the chia seeds are set.
  • Garnish with slivered almonds or pistachios and a little more cardamom powder before serving.
