Makes 5 servings


      • ¾ cup of chia seeds
      • 1 TBS of Organic Matcha Green Tea Cooking Grade
      • 3 cups unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk
      • 1 TBS of maple syrup
      • 1 cup of yogurt (we used vanilla flavored greek yogurt)
      • Toppings of your choice:
        • Fruit: apple, blueberries, mango, grapes, banana, etc
        • Nuts and grains: flax meal, granola, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, slivered almonds, etc
        • Spices: cinnamon, cardamom, etc


      1. Place chia seeds in a medium-size bowl (should hold at least 3 cups).
      2. Using a fork or small whisk, mix the chia seeds with the matcha powder until the chia seeds are coated.
      3. Add in your milk of choice and stir to combine.
      4. Place the matcha chia pudding in the refrigerator to rest for 15 minutes or overnight. Chia seeds will absorb the milk and expand. If the matcha chia pudding is too thick for your liking, add more milk.
      5. After 15 minutes, or overnight, stir in the yogurt and maple syrup.
      6. Portion the matcha chia pudding (¾ cup) into individual lidded containers (we used 5, 8 ounce Ball jars) and refrigerate.
      7. Add your preferred toppings just before serving.

Notes: For extra protein, add a scoop of protein powder to the matcha chia mixture. You may also need to add more milk as protein powder will cause the pudding to thicken.
