Matcha Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are the bomb! They are high in iron, magnesium, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds also contain a decent amount of zinc, potassium and vitamins B1, B2 and B3. That's why our family eats chia seeds daily! We add them to our smoothies, sprinkle them on porridge and make chia puddings out of them!  

As part of my Coffee Free Challenge, I want to show you some alternative ways to can add matcha into your day. If you missed 'The Answer to you Coffee Addiction' post you can read it here

One way is in a chia pudding! Chia puddings are the perfect on the go snack because they are quick to make, easy to store and last a few days in the fridge. Add matcha to the mix and you've got yourself a nutrient dense, antioxidant packed breakfast. You can also use the left overs in a smoothie! Learn more about matcha green tea here
