I have a complicated relationship with chia seeds. I’m not a big fan of them on their own on toast or in smoothies BUT chia seed pudding, on the other hand, is straight up magical. I love the texture and it is very versatile. Plus, it is super easy to make and meal prep for the week.
So in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, let’s make some GREEN chocolate matcha protein chia pudding. (I know, it’s a stretch.)
In a mason jar or bowl combine 3 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 cup non dairy milk, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of your favorite sweetener (I used agave), 1 teaspoon matcha powder, and 1 teaspoon chocolate protein powder (I used the OWYN brand). Mix it all together and set aside for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes has passed, stir again. This is an optional step but it really helps the chia seeds from clumping on the bottom.
Put it in the fridge overnight or for at least 5 hours. It will thicken up and be oh so delicious.
I hope you like this recipe. Let me know if you make it!
