As warm weather begins and we pull out our shorts and sun dresses – it’s always a fresh (and nagging) reminder to eat healthier. We constantly put – maybe too much – pressure on ourselves to look a certain way during the sunny, warm months – but learning to incorporate healthier food choices into our lives and eating habits is always a great thing!
This recipe is a sweet treat that is packed with nutrition, superfoods, powerful antioxidants and energy boosting goodness. We hope you love this Matcha Chia Pudding as much as we do!
Coconut Matcha Chia Pudding
Yields four 1/2-cup servings
14.5 ounces (1 can or 428 mL) canned coconut milk
1 1/2 teaspoons matcha powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (to taste)
1/4 cup (50 grams) chia seeds
1 recipe Coconut Whipped Cream
1/3 cup (30 grams) shredded coconut
In a food processor or blender, blend together the canned coconut milk, matcha powder, vanilla, and maple syrup. Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Then whisk the pudding once and return it to the refrigerator to set overnight.
Before serving, stir shredded coconut into coconut whipped cream. Set aside.
Divide pudding evenly between serving containers. Top with a generous amount of whipped cream and serve.
Grab a spoon & indulge – have a wonderful weekend!
