Chia seeds. There are two types of chia seeds available, black and white chia seeds. You can use either of those two. While they might have a slight difference in taste and texture, those differences are minimal.

Mango. Nice fresh mangos are the best for this recipe. However, the mango season is very short and it might be difficult to find fresh mangos during the winter months. Feel free to use frozen mango instead.

Maple syrup. Maple syrup is my favorite natural sweetener. It adds a nice smooth, caramel-like flavour. But if you prefer honey, or any other sweetener, go ahead. You can also leave sweeteners out completely if you trying to keep your sugar intake low. Mangos are naturally very sweet.

Coconut milk. I know some people make their own coconut milk and this is amazing. I find it a bit time-consuming and am fine with fresh coconut milk from the fridge aisle in my local supermarket. I don’t recommend using canned coconut milk as it tends to be thicker and heavier.

Not a fan of coconut milk? Feel free to substitute it with your favourite milk. Almond milk, oat milk or dairy milk will work great.
