Matcha Chia Pudding

You guys, this matcha chia pudding is bomb! Plain and simple. As someone who struggles to eat breakfast, let alone enjoy it, chia pudding of any variety is the perfect solution.

My roommate, Domenica, got me hooked on chia pudding when she made me an apple-cinnamon version this past fall. Simply throw some ingredients into a mason jar the night before, and come morning, you’ve got yourself an easy, yet highly nutritious and insanely yummy breakfast.

Lately, I’ve been so into matcha. For those of you who have yet to hop on the matcha bandwagon, matcha is more simply known as green tea powder. It is highly energizing, great for your metabolism, and extremely versatile. Think: lattes, cookies, and ice cream, to name a few options.

    Well, I finally got a chance to make this. I made a double batch with the matcha I got when I was in the city with you. It’s good and filling which will work out well during the week. I’d like to try the Apple cinnamon also. But also like to try it with the honey instead of the maple syrup next time like Denise mentioned.
