Matcha chia pudding is a vegan, healthy, energizing snack! Created with matcha powder, coconut milk, Green Dream, chia, cinnamon, and vanilla, it's a lovely way to start the day. Plus, you can definitely prep this one the night before – it only takes 5 minutes!
Green Dream and matcha team up to make this satisfying and detoxifying pudding an AMAZING source of antioxidants. Spirulina, the star ingredient in Green Dream, is bursting with antioxidants, including zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin, betoa-carotein, superoxide dismutase, and lutein. These free-radical fighting molecules bolster the immune system, combat invasive viruses and pathogens, and promote healthy vision and beautiful skin.
Matcha powder is actually an even more potent source of nutrients! In drinking the finely powdered leaves, your body is flooded with antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been linked to promoting heart health, regulating blood sugar levels, and reducing blood pressure. Matcha also contains another polyphenol called EGCG that's been shown to stop cancer cell growth and support the metabolism–which explains why the price tag on matcha is quite a bit higher than green tea bags!
This Green Dream Matcha Chia Pudding is a delicious snack and natural form of medicine full of fiber and healthy fats to keep you satisfied all morning! Top it with granola and fresh fruit!
