Chia seeds are energizing and excellent for reducing blood lipids! Matcha is a super nutrient dense version of green tea. If you make this at night, you can enjoy it as a super energizing breakfast!
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut, almond, or soy milk
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp matcha powder
- 4 Tbsp chia seeds
- 2 cups mixed berries of your choice (blueberries, sliced strawberries, raspberries, etc)
Blend the milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and matcha together in a blender until smooth. If you prefer not to use the blender, vigorously whisk it together until all of the matcha is dissolved. Pour the liquid into a bowl, and stir in chia seeds. Stir it again in 5 minutes intervals (If you skip this, it will all clump together in an unappealing way.) After 15 minutes if intermittent stirring, place the pudding in the fridge, and allow to sit for an hour or overnight. It may take a little longer than one hour depending on the milk you use. It should have the consistency of tapioca pudding when done. Stir the mixture once more, and serve topped with fresh berries.
