Jar of colorful, vibrant Matcha Chia Pudding

This little breakfast is super easy and absolutely delicious. It’s a great way to start the day with protein (18 g), omega-3s, and vitamin C. Plus, all the antioxidant benefits and little energy boost of matcha! I find the mango sweetens it enough for my taste, but you can always add a sweetener. If it’s your first time making it, I’d recommend maple syrup, as you can easily stir it in afterward.

Why I love This Recipe

  • Nutrient-Packed: Chia seeds, mango, and matcha are nutrient-dense.
  • Easy to Make: Simple, no-cook preparation.
  • Deliciously Creamy: The texture is smooth and satisfying.
  • Adaptable: Easily customizable with all your favorite toppings.
  • Great for Meal Prep: Perfect for preparing ahead of time.

How to make this recipe (summary)

Mix matcha with milk to remove any clumps. Combine 1/4 cup yogurt, chia seeds, sweetener (if using), and matcha milk in a jar. Refrigerate overnight to let it set. Blend mango and water to create a puree. Top the chia pudding with the remaining yogurt and mango puree. Enjoy your nutritious breakfast! View recipe card below for detailed instructions.

Ingredient Notes

  • Chia Seeds: High in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
  • Matcha Powder: Rich in antioxidants, it gives a unique flavor. Use ceremonial grade for best taste.
  • Soy milk: Adds creaminess and protein. It can be substituted with any plant-based milk.
  • Maple Syrup: Optional but adds a lovely natural sweetness.

FAQ

  • Can I make this pudding with other types of milk? Yes, any plant-based milk works well.
  • How long does Matcha Chia Pudding last in the fridge? Up to 5 days when stored properly.
  • Can I use other fruit instead of mango? Absolutely. Blended pineapple would be just as delicious. Otherwise, I love it topped with chopped kiwis, blueberries, or raspberries.
  • Is this kid-friendly? Due to the addition of matcha, which is a stimulant, I would not recommend it for kids.

Variations and Tips

  • Protein Boost: Mix in protein powder for extra nutrition.
  • Fruit Layers: Create layers with the pureed mango for a visual treat.
  • Overnight Success: Let it rest overnight for the best texture.
  • Texture Play: Top with crunchy granola or nuts.
  • Sweetness Control: Add maple syrup to your taste.
  • Extra Toppings idea: Fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds add texture and nutrients.
