Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is definitely one of those recipes that you either love or hate. I personally love it durning the warmer months for a quick breakfast or morning snack.

It’s an easy 5-minute recipe that can be customized in so many ways, and makes for the perfect meal prep for busy weeks.

The chia seeds sit for a few hours, or overnight, in the fridge with some matcha powder, milk, and a few other flavorings.

Once the seeds have thickened up into a pudding like consistency, you can serve it with your favorite toppings. My favorites are fresh fruit, granola and coconut flakes.

Chia seeds are one of my pantry staples, and are such a good source of fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

Prepping chia pudding for the week is an easy way to pack in all of those nutrients off the morning, and truly tastes like dessert for breakfast!

How to make matcha chia pudding

The base recipe to any chia pudding is chia seeds, your choice of milk, and any flavorings you like

  1. Chia seeds– you can find them in almost any grocery store, usually in the spice section
  2. Milk– I love using an unsweetened almond milk or oat milk for a creamier texture
  3. Matcha powder– the matcha adds the perfect flavor to this recipe
  4. Maple syrup– I like to sweeten my chia pudding with maple syrup, but honey or any other sweetener you prefer would work well
  5. Vanilla extract– for an extra boost of flavor

This recipe is nutritious, simple to make, and the perfect healthy make-ahead breakfast!
