Because what’s not to love about easy, healthy, and delicious things?
Am I right?
To me, there’s seriously nothing better than waking up, knowing a filling, healthy breakfast is waiting just for you in the fridge. I just love it.
To make individual servings, I make the chia pudding in larger batches and then store it in separate, sealable containers so they’re literally grab and go.
Since mornings are super busy in our house (as I’m sure they are in many of your homes, too), any little help to get the morning going easier is welcomed by me.
Especially on those mornings after Hunter chooses to wake up at 4am asking for breakfast.
Those mornings, I do not like. At all.
But, I digress…
Let’s talk about this gorgeous matcha chia pudding right here. C’mon, now! It’s lean. It’s green. It’s mean.
Err, I guess it’s not actually mean. It’s actually pretty sweet.
Ha! See what I just did there? With the silliness?
Did I mention Hunter was up early this morning? Give me some slack, people.
This easy matcha chia pudding requires just 5 ingredients and couldn’t be easier to make (or eat!). Instead of my usual Almond Breeze almond milk, I tried their brand spanking new Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend.
I did the math: Almonds? Love them. Cashews? Love them. Blend them in a tasty milk? Yep, love that, too.
As expected, the Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend tastes great and works great with this chia pudding.
Oh, the deliciousness!
In case you’re curious and you’ve never tried matcha, it’s a special form of powdered green tea. It’s super powered with natural caffeine, antioxidants, and other vitamins and minerals. You just need a touch of it to do the trick. Plus it’s darn tasty!
