Vegan matcha chia pudding made with cashew milk and sweet matcha. This beautiful green chia pudding is layered with vanilla almond milk yogurt and fruit.
Today I have a delicious matcha chia pudding recipe for #chiapuddingmonth! Matcha is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and has a calming effect on the body. It’s definitely one of the “trends” all over social media, but for good reason! It tastes delicious, has a beautiful green color, and works perfectly in chia pudding.
For this recipe, I used a sweet matcha powder that means you don’t need to add other sweeteners to the chia pudding. If you want to use an unsweetened matcha, then you will most likely need to add a little maple syrup or stevia. Whatever works for you!
I layered the matcha chia pudding with vanilla almond milk yogurt and topped it with fresh blueberries. It’s important to start your day with food that’s good for your gut, and the combination of yogurt and chia seeds will make your belly happy.
Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and protein. These little seeds are a superfood for anyone eating a plant-based diet. What’s your favorite way to incorporate chia seeds into your diet? If I’m not making chia pudding, then I’ll add chia seeds to my smoothies!
I’ve said this a million times, but my favorite thing about chia pudding is that it’s easy to make the night before. I started using a bullet journal this year, and it’s been really helpful for to track different recipes and breakfast ideas. I’m TERRIBLE at eating breakfast when I’m rushing around in the morning, but chia pudding is easy for me to plan ahead.
Chia pudding is also one of the few breakfasts that actually keep me full for longer than an hour. I’m a bottomless pit and will graze all day long, but this matcha chia pudding does the trick. Is anybody else ready for breakfast number two after a few hours?
If you need other chia pudding ideas, there’s two peanut butter chia pudding recipes, dragon fruit chia pudding, and pumpkin cinnamon chia pudding. Have fun and remember to use the hashtag #chiapuddingmonth and tag me so I can share your recipes!
Matcha Chia Pudding & Almond Milk Yogurt
|Yield: serves 2 people|
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 1/4 cup cashew milk, unsweetened
- 1 1/2 tbsp sweet matcha
- 6 oz vanilla almond milk yogurt
- Add the chia seeds, cashew milk, and matcha powder to a large mason jar and give it a few stirs. Add the lid and give it a few good shakes, then place in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- Once the chia seeds are a pudding-like consistency, add layers of vanilla almond milk yogurt and top with fresh fruit. Enjoy cold!
If you're using unsweetened, pure matcha, then you'll most likely need to add a little bit of maple syrup or other sweetener to the chia pudding.
