BFF Matcha Latte Chia Pudding

“2 superfoods in one dish, and you’re telling me it tastes like a latte?” you may say, astounded.

From my very first sip of a matcha green tea latte, I was in love. From my very first glance at the nutrition info of said latte, I was shocked and heartbroken. So imagine my shock when, years later, I combine chia seeds with matcha powder while casually whipping up a batch of chia pudding, only to take a little taste test and find that same flavour, falling in love all over again.

This matcha chia pudding tastes like sipping on a matcha latte, only it is full of healthy fats and fibre. It is the perfect breakfast, and a satisfying afternoon snack. It is almost too good to be true.

This batch makes 4 servings that fit nicely into small mason jars to take on the go, but sometimes it’s also nice to store it in a big container to whip up a big chia bowl topped with fruit and nuts. The choice is yours, but either way if you love matcha lattes, we’re sure you’ll love this filling superfood pudding.

We got everything we need. Look at that green health!

  • 1 tbsp matcha powder
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup or honey
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2.5 cups unsweetened nut milk

Blending it up for that smooth, dreamy latte feel. 

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend. (Alternatively, you could mix ingredients together with a whisk but the pudding will not come out as smooth).
  2. Divide mixture in 4 small mason jars, or place in a sealed container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
