Matcha Chia Seed Pudding

My first time hearing about chia seeds was actually just less than a week ago. Yes, I am totally behind on the super foods game but hey, who says you’re too late to start now? Better late than never, right? Chia seeds are definitely a cool discovery for me – they expand over time in liquid – kinda like what tapioca does! Maaagic! Not only are they high in calcium, but chia seeds are also a great source of omega-3. Pair it with other sorts of healthy ingredients like blueberries, bananas, granola, and coconut and I’m sure you’ll be on your way to a healthier you!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 2 1/2 cup soy milk or almond milk + 4 tbsp for mixing matcha
  • 2 tsp matcha powder (I used Midori from Matchaeologist)
  • 1/8 cup coconut milk/cream (optional)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla or almond extract (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Toppings: granola, sliced bananas, fresh blueberries, shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, add matcha powder and 4 tbsp of soy milk. Mix until lumps are removed and a smooth pasty liquid is formed.
  2. Combine soy milk, coconut milk, syrup, vanilla and salt in a blender.
  3. Add in the smooth matcha pasty liquid into blender.
  4. Blend for 10 seconds (longer if lower power).
  5. Add in chia seeds and stir with a spoon until even distributed.
  6. Cool overnight in fridge or for ~5 hours. (I would encourage to stir on occasions to help the chia seeds distribute more evenly)
  7. Spoon into cups and add toppings. (*The above are just suggested toppings – please cater to your own tastebuds!*)
  8. Add extra syrup if desired.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
