Matcha Chia Pudding

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been a while since I last blogged. I've been really busy packing, unpacking and moving. I finally have some spare time on hand today and was looking back on my photos when I realised I haven't yet shared this recipe which I adore. And no surprises here, of course, it has to be matcha-related again! :P

Here I've got in my beautiful Maxwell & Williams Mansion glassware a mix of textures and colours paired with fresh summer flavours.

It's a base of matcha chia pudding, topped with matcha granola (gifted by the very lovely Lianne), pan-roasted organic coconut chips, fresh strawberries and mango.

Here's the recipe for my matcha chia pudding:

Matcha Chia Pudding
Recipe by The Bakeanista

Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder (I used Zen Wonder's Shizen)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • fresh fruits for garnishing

Method
  1. Combine and mix well all ingredients in a bowl, or like I did in my Maxwell & William stemless glasses. 
  2. Let it soak overnight in the refrigerator. I cling wrap the glasses for hygiene purposes.
  3. Give it a good stir the following morning, and garnish with any topping you like. Enjoy! :)
Garnishing with flowers instantly make everything look that extra bit pretty, don't ya think? Here's an aerial view where you can get a good glimpse of all the toppings.

I invited a good friend over for brekkie and served this. She was going all ohh-and-ahh, saying my matcha chia pudding can be passed off as "cafe quality" both in taste and presentation. Hehe that made me so so happy!

As much as I love eating out and exploring new cafes, brekkie or brunch at home can be just as fun, yummy and pretty too! I had so much fun "plating" this up. This recipe in particular is also really easy to prepare and so delicious too!

As I used a really high quality matcha powder (Zen Wonder's Shizen), the matcha flavour really stood out. The matcha granola with dried blueberries also went really well with this chia pudding as I love the contrasting textures. So I highly recommend you make some the granola ahead of time to go with your chia pudding. :)

I hope you'll enjoy this healthy brekkie as much as I did!
