Coconut Mango Chia Pop Recipe

I feel like coconut and mango go together like peas and carrots.  It is just right.  And then you throw in some chia seeds, and Bam!  You have created perfection.  I have never appreciated the goodness of chia until recently.  They are the most unique little seed – and I still think its crazy how they can expand and turn into something totally different.

Benefits of Chia Seeds

  • Chia seeds come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds contains 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, 2282 mg of Omega 3 and 752 mg of Omega 6 fatty acids (This makes them a really great source of both fiber and Omegas)
  • A significant concentration of fiber combined with their ability to absorb 10 times their weight in water also makes chia seeds excellent for maintaining regularity and also contributing to satiety
  • Contain iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc
  • Emerging research suggests that including chia seeds as part of a healthy diet may help improve cardiovascular risk factors such as lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure

I love making my own pops for my kids because I can pack them with fruit, and other nutritious foods but they still love them like a treat.  Sometimes they even ask for a popsicle for breakfast, and when it is one that I made I feel good about letting them have it any time of day!  These pops are creamy, naturally sweet and packed with nutrients.

To make these you will need 3 ingredients. Yep just 3! Mango (frozen or fresh), soaked chia seeds, and coconut milk.  That is it! For coconut milk, I like the Thai Kitchen lite. I let my chia seeds soak in water over night, so when I’m ready to make these I don’t have to wait.  Blend ingredients together, pour into your molds, freeze and enjoy!  I love my Zoku because you can make popsicles in 7 minutes.   But you can definitely use any type of pop mold.

Are the chia seeds supposed to blend into the popsicles unseen? Mine did not. I’m wondering if you need a high-end blender to do this recipe properly.

Natalie Monson says:

I have a high powered blender and so yes it blended the seeds. If yours won’t blend the seeds raw, try soaking them first for a few hours and then they should blend just fine.

Denise says:

Unfortunately I did soak them for about 12 hours.

steph says:

I was also wondering what I cam do with the leftover mixer? I only have 4 popsicle molds!!

steph says:

Hi,

I was wondering why you need to soak chia seeds over night? Can I make them without soaking them?

Felicitas says:

Wanted to know if I could substitute the coconut milk with something else?
My son doesn’t like the coconut .

Kassandra says:

thanks, I really want to make these, I think the boys will love them.

Well Damyon will, Orange might be close enough to red to get Rook to eat them, if not, I can strawberry to color them… hopefully. ^_^

Natalie says:

Yes you can definitely use them. It may change the color just a bit, but shouldn’t effect the flavor.

Kassandra says:

can you use something besides Chia seeds? I can’t find them in my area, but I have flax seeds.

Jessica says:

Do you have to soak the chia seeds? What is the purpose of that step?

It’s yummy and so simple to make: Thanks for this yummy formula.

Nicole says:

Thanks! Can’t wait to try them out!

Natalie says:

I haven’t, but you could definitely substitute. You will want to use a fruit that is sweet because mangos are very sweet. You could use banana, pineapple, pears, or even ripe strawberries.

Natalie says:

The cans I use are 13.65 ounces.

Natalie says:

I have had my zoku for about 2 years and never had a problem with leaking. I also don’t have a problem pulling my pops out and I have made a lot of different types in it. In my honest opinion, it is one of the best pop makers out there. I use mine all of the time and really love it.

Natalie says:

Yes – it is 1/4 cup total including the water.

Mama says:

How many oz is the 1 can of coconut milk? I buy coconut milk in cartons

Marci says:

Does the water from the chia seeds go into the blender as well?

Jennifer says:

I was wondering more on your Zoku. I just read some not so good review but wanted to hear how long you had it and if it leaks. Do you have problems pulling out the pops? thanks

(1/2 cup water + 2 Tbs chia seeds) soak overnight I would soak them 8-10 hours

Tana says:

Nevermind, I just read the whole article!

Tana says:

How long do you soak the chia seeds?

Missy says:

How much water do you soak the chia seeds in? I’m new to using them.

nicole says:

have you used the same recipe substituting other fruits for the mango?
