Matcha Coconut Chia Pudding (Dairy-Free, Paleo)

Print

Chia pudding is an easy make-ahead, grab-and-go breakfast staple at our house.  It is nutritious, delicious, and versatile, and can literally be thrown together in minutes the night before.

This Matcha Coconut Chia Pudding is one of our favorite combos. It is wonderfully creamy and satisfying, plus the nutrition and taste have been amped-up a couple notches thanks to the antioxidant-rich matcha.

Matcha is made by grinding high quality nutrient-rich green tea leaves into a fine powder.  It has a beautiful green colour and a unique, complex taste, with a balance of naturally sweet, malty, bitter and earthy vegetal notes.  It is packed with anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, disease-fighting phytochemicals including the subgroup of antioxidants called catechins.  One particular catechin, EGCg, is widely recognized for its anti-cancer properties.  Matcha is also used to induce a sense of calm while simultaneously boosting energy, concentration, memory and metabolism.

Make this super easy, super nutritious meal to have for breakfast or a snack this week!

Further Food Commentary:

Chia seeds have a mild nutty taste and are extremely nutrient-dense. They are rich in fiber, minerals, protein, antioxidants, and healthy fats. In fact, a 2 tablespoon serving of chia seeds contains approximately 4 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat, and 12 grams of carbohydrate, of which 11 grams are actually fiber!
