One of the things I love most about matcha is its versatility: it’s a flavorful, healthful drink on its own, but also serves as a great flavor for frappes, shaved ice, ice pops, or even on toasted nuts. It goes excellently with chocolate, as you will see in this chia seed pudding, and also in my matcha energy bites.
So, elevate your dessert game with this chia seed pudding made from Numi Ceremonial Matcha and cocoa powder. Sweetened with dates, this recipe is fairly guilt-free, but absolutely tasty. It even makes a great healthy snack when you need something sweet. The best part is, it is very easy to make!
Matcha Chia Seed Pudding
Author: Jerry James Stone
Recipe type: Healthy Snack
Serves: 3 servings
- 3 cups almond milk, vanilla unsweetened
- 10 Medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, unsweetened
- ¼ teaspoon instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons Numi Ceremonial Matcha
- 1 cup chia seeds, divided
- Add the Medjool dates to a food processor and pulse until chopped.
- Add in the almond milk, ½ cup at first, and puree. Then add the remaining milk, and blend until the date milk is complete.
- Divide the milk into two small mixing bowls.
- In one, add the cocoa powder and instant coffee. In the other, add the ceremonial matcha powder. Whisk each one separately until the ingredients are incorporated.
- Take a ½ cup of the chia seeds and whisk about half of it into the chocolate mixture, adding more until you reach a consistency like that of pudding.
- Take the other ½ cup of chia, and do the same for the matcha.
- Using 8 ounce jars, layer the pudding. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
