one cup of almond milk*I used unflavoured milk and sugar-free
two tablespoons of organic chia seeds
one teaspoon of Matcha green tea powder
additional sweetenerif desired and to taste
seasonal berriesfor topping
Place the chia seeds in a large container, add the Matcha, the sweetener, and give it a good stir. Slowly and mixing continuously, pour in the milk. Mix until all of the ingredients are well combine. Cover the container, place in the refrigerator and allow to sit at least a couple of hours, or preferably overnight.
The next day**, or after a couple of hours, prepare the fruit you'll be adding to your pudding. You can layer the fruit with the pudding or simply add it all on top. Enjoy!
*You can really use any type of milk you like. But if using sweetened dairy-free milks you'll have to pay extra attention to any additional sweetener you'd like to add. ** After your pudding has sat and thickened, check to see if you're happy with the consistency. If not, either thicken up by adding a little bit more chia seeds or water down by mixing in more milk. Allow to sit.IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU NOT SWALLOW THE CHIA SEEDS DRY, IT'S BEST TO MIX THEM WITH A LIQUID FIRST SO THAT THEY DON'T GET STUCK IN YOUR THROAT.
