Ingredients

Chia Pudding Layer

  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Matcha Pudding Layer

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk unsweetened
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or to taste
  • 2 tsp matcha
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla. Whisk for at least 5 minutes to allow the chia to absorb a lot of the milk. Let it sit for about an hour at room temperature, or until it's a consistency that you like. Whisk about every 10 minutes if you can. If you want to make it ahead of time for the next day, then you can leave it overnight in the fridge.
  • While the chia is soaking, make the matcha layer. Add all of the ingredients to a blender. If you don't have a very powerful blender then you can soak the cashews for a few hours ahead of time, or even boil them for around 10 minutes to get them soft and then drain. Blend all of the ingredients together on high speed until perfectly smooth. Refrigerate until the chia layer is ready.
  • When the chia pudding is thick, layer chia with the matcha pudding in a cup or bowl. Top with additional ingredients if desired such as fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut, granola, etc... Serve and enjoy!
