I don’t know about you guys, but my goal for the next month or so is to lose the extra 5 lbs I put on over the holidays. I’ve been trying to cook more, snack healthy, and exercise 4 days a week. Dieting for me typically comes with researching recipes, as salads, chicken & vegetables can get boring realllly quick. I’ve made chocolate chia seed pudding in the past and loved it, so when I came across this Matcha Green Tea version I knew I had to give it a shot.
One cup of Matcha green tea has 10x the antioxidants of normal green tea. That being said, this pudding makes for a great quick & healthy snack…and you can add your favorite toppings to make it your own. I added coconut, banana & honey – deliciousness.
Yields ~2 servings
- 1 cup chia seeds
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp Matcha green tea powder
Mix together the chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla and matcha green tea powder and leave in the fridge overnight. Add your toppings…enjoy!
