Matcha Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is a staple for me and so many other people for a reason. It has to be one of the easiest breakfasts to prep of all time. Mix it up, toss it in the fridge, and you’ve got your first meal of the day ready to go for the next morning. It takes approximately two seconds to throw together and it’s easy to make a big batch so you’ve got it on hand all week long.

Not only is it easy to make, but chia pudding is also such a nutritious breakfast option. Chia seeds are packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats and tons of calcium, which many Americans tend to be deficient in. Because of it’s winning combo of fiber, fat and protein, it will keep you feeling full all morning long.

I also love chia pudding because it’s so easy to mix up the flavor each time you make it to keep things interesting. Today’s flavor? Matcha chia pudding! It’s delicious, and the little boost of caffeine makes it perfect for mornings or a little pick-me-up midday.

Ingredients for Matcha Chia Pudding

This matcha chia seed pudding has been on repeat for me lately. I love the earthy flavor the matcha provides. It makes for a fresh breakfast option in the morning and pairs so well with fruit and granola. A drizzle of vegan yogurt on top would really take it over the edge.

You only need 5 ingredients to make this matcha chia pudding! Here’s what you need:

  • Chia seeds. You can’t make chia seed pudding without chia seeds! They’re a little nutrition powerhouse filled with protein, fat and fiber.
  • Non-dairy milk. You can use any variety you’d like, but I recommend going for unsweetened as we’ll be adding our own sweetener.
  • Matcha green tea powder. I love that matcha provides a slow, stable boost of energy compared to coffee, and it lends such a delicious flavor to this chia pudding recipe!
  • Sweetener. You can use any sweetener you like for this matcha chia pudding. I recommend maple syrup or a few drops of liquid stevia extract.
  • Vanilla extract. A touch of vanilla will make this chia seed pudding taste like a matcha latte from your favorite cafe.

How to Make Matcha Chia Pudding

You guys, it just doesn’t get easier than chia seed pudding. Truly. This is one of those recipe where you just mix it up, pop it in the fridge and forget about it! The hardest part of this recipe is honestly remembering to make it the night before because it does have to sit for a few hours.

Here’s how to make this matcha chia pudding recipe:

  1. Mix chia seeds and non-dairy milk in a bowl, making sure to break up any chia seed clusters that form
  2. Whisk matcha powder and warm water together in a separate bowl and mix until smooth
  3. Add the matcha mixture, maple syrup and vanilla to the chia seed mixture, mix until well combined and then pop it in the fridge overnight, or at least for 2-3 hours

Once you’re ready to enjoy your matcha chia seed pudding, I highly recommend topping it off with your favorite fresh fruit, granola, nuts or a scoop of non-dairy yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

  • 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup, or 34 drops pure stevia extract

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, add chia seeds and non-dairy milk. Stir to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, add matcha powder. Add a little hot water; whisk until smooth. (This prevents the matcha powder from clumping when mixed into the chia pudding).

  4. Top with fresh fruit, granola and other toppings.
