“Superfood” and “dessert” in the same sentence (or dish) sounds too good to be true, but this tropical pudding is good and true. Fiber and protein-packed chia seeds are cooked in coconut milk and a touch of sugar. Enjoy it warm or cold, topped with fresh mango while thinking beachy thoughts.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • 1 cup (240ml) coconut milk 
  • ¼ cup (40g) chia seeds 
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 
  • ½ fresh mango, peeled and diced coconut chips (optional)


  1. Place the coconut milk, chia seeds, and sugar into the Anyday dish and whisk to combine. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave 2-3 minutes, or ****until the seeds are plumped and the mixture is hot. Let rest with the lid on for 2-3 minutes to thicken.
  3. Whisk the chia seeds until the pudding turns creamy.
  4. Top with fresh diced mango and coconut chips, if using.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Turn the pudding into a fall-inspired treat by adding 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree and a pinch of pumpkin spice before cooking.
  • Try it with other fresh fruits such as peaches, berries, pineapple, or bananas
  • Add extra protein and mix in some peanut or almond butter.

Recipe notes

  • If coconut milk is not available, use any other plant-based milk. You can also use regular milk if you prefer.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
