homemade matcha green tea chia seed pudding smoothie

Delicious vegan and gluten-free matcha chia pudding smoothie

Deliciousness in a glass!

I’ve been back on a matcha latte kick lately so I decided to test out a new smoothie. I really enjoyed it so I thought I would share the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did (but then again, I used maple syrup in it so, it’s an automatic win with me!).

Matcha green tea chia pudding smoothie recipe

  • Servings: 1

  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds

  • Optional toppings: banana, raspberry and mint

Directions

  1. Add chia seeds and cashew milk in a bowl and stir to mix.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the hot water with the matcha powder until smooth. (It prevents clumping).

      Thanks so much! My friend is a professional photographer so knows how to light and shoot my food shots so they look better than I can ever take with my regular camera! 🙂
