Vegan Vanilla Pudding with Mango & Chia

My Tasty Enemy: Welcome to “My Tasty Enemy,“ where we face our biggest culinary enemies in the kitchen. Julia isn’t fond of pineapple, Brussels sprouts and endives, Isa dislikes kohlrabi, mango, and radishes. Will we still find recipes that somehow make us like these ingredients? You can find all recipes of the series here.

Hello mango, so today it’s your turn! My first tasty-enemy-challenge with lovely kohlrabi failed, so today I am trying to master my second tasty enemy: mango. You can’t understand that point, right? Mango tastes like soap for me. I don’t eat mangos in ice cream, juices or as a fruit. So todays challenge is a hard one, because mango is a real big tasty enemy for me.

Vegan Vanilla Pudding with Mango & Chia

2 große Portionen
20 minutes


  • 500 ml (2 cups) plant-based vanilla milk
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 50 g (0.25 cup) sugar
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 mango
  • 2 tbsp chia


  1. Slice vanilla pod and scrape out seeds.
  2. Mix cornstarch and a bit milk until creamy.
  3. In a bowl mix the rest of the milk, cornstarch-mixture, vanilla seeds and sugar.
  4. Bring to boil and let simmer for five minutes. Keep stirring until you get a pudding-like-texture.
  5. Peel mango, cut it in half and then into small cubes.
  6. Puree 2/3 of them.
  7. Layer vanilla pudding, mango puree and top with mango cubes and chia seeds.

the conclusion: To dissolve the whole story: mango is still my tasty enemy. I really don’t chum up with mango. The smell, the consistency, the greasy feeling. But hey, the vanilla pudding is still great!
