Get a healthy dose of antioxidants and fibre in the morning with this matcha chia pudding
If you follow any health bloggers, you've likely come across an abundance of green-hued healthy foods made with matcha - a hugely trendy green tea powder. Matcha is chockfull of antioxidants - much more than green tea, in fact - and has a rich, grassy, slightly bitter flavour.

Another trend that's taking the health food world by storm right now is chia pudding, and with good reason: These tiny super-seeds are an excellent source of fibre. Plus, because they bind up to a ton of liquid, they're super-satisfying and make a filling breakfast or snack.

When you combine matcha and chia, you can create a delicious healthy breakfast (or dessert) that's loaded with essential nutrients. Read on for an easy matcha chia pudding recipe. (It's not very sweet, so if you prefer a sweeter flavour, drizzle on more honey!)

***

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or other milk of choice)
  • 1-2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (104 g) chia seeds
  • Coconut whipped cream (made with 1 tin full-fat coconut milk or cream, 1-2 tbsp stevia and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste)
  • Toasted coconut, for topping
 
Method:
  1. In a blender, blend milk, honey, both gingers, matcha and salt until smooth (start with 1 tbsp honey, taste and add more if you like it sweeter).
  2. Add chia seeds and stir well.
  3. Pour into 2 small bowls, cover and refrigerate overnight (at least 6 hours).
  4. After an hour, check if the seeds have sunk to the bottom. If they have, give the puddings a stir to incorporate them.
  5. Just before serving, top puddings with coconut whipped cream toasted coconut.
 
Top tip: You can also blend in the chia seeds if you prefer a smoother pudding. If you leave the seeds whole, you get more of a tapioca-like consistency.
 
Enjoy!
