Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
  • 3 tablespoon chia seed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey (and more to taste, optional)
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder

Instructions

  • In a mason jar or resealable container, use a handheld blender to blend the coconut milk, mango and maple syrup until smooth. Add matcha and give another quick whir.
  • Next, stir in chia seed and coconut and whisk vigorously for about a minute. Wait a few minutes and repeat stirring session.
  • Go ahead and repeat this cycle once more for chia pudding perfection. (You do this to ensure that the chia doesn't clump together as it hydrates.)
  • Place in the fridge and you've got breakfast the next morning.

Notes

PRO TIP: If you tasted the matcha mix before you added the chia, you'll note it tastes lovely and sweet. This sweetness dissipates by the next morning...it will taste like an unsweetened matcha latte. Which is awesome, if that's how you like it. Need a bit more sweetness? Stir in some more maple syrup in the AM if you wish.
