With just a few ingredients, this Coconut Matcha Chia Pudding is perfect enjoyed as a quick breakfast or delicious snack.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I am usually late to the game when it comes to trendy foods. I only tried quinoa years after it blew up the Internet, and I still haven't given cauliflower rice a try. Because of that, it might not surprise you that I hadn't tried chia pudding until earlier this year. And, seriously, what was I waiting for?
Chia pudding is my new favorite quick breakfast, and it's so easy to make! You literally throw everything into a mason jar, give it a quick shake, and put it in the fridge. Then, you can grab it on the way out the door the next morning and not think twice about what to eat for breakfast.
In my opinion, this coconut matcha chia pudding takes the chia pudding game to the next level. Chia seeds themselves are an excellent source of antioxidants, protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids, while matcha is rich in antioxidants and fiber. Pair it with some fresh berries and you are looking at a delicious and balanced breakfast.
Personally, I am obsessed with making a big batch of chia pudding and eating it for breakfast throughout the entire week. This recipe will stay fresh for around five days in the fridge, so it's perfect for meal prep! In addition, you can get inventive with the flavors in your chia pudding—swap the matcha out for cinnamon, lemon, or anything else you prefer. Why not try a new flavor every day of the week?
