About this matcha chia pudding recipe

After making my duckie mango chia seed pudding for ehow, I wanted to make other animal variations. Hence, this froggie chia pudding!

This matcha chia pudding was made with chia seeds, almond milk, matcha, and alternative sugar. I topped it with bananas, hemp seeds, granola, and matcha whipped cream. Not only was this combo super delicious, it was made in less than an hour and packed full of fiber, vitamins, and lots of cuteness!!

So if you’re looking for a healthy meal/snack prep recipe, this is the one for you! Check out the rest of the blog post for different ways to switch up the recipe and make it your own.

But don’t worry, I’ll have a bunch more chia seed pudding recipes up in the future. If you’d like to see a certain one, let me know in the comments or email (bi****@bi***********.com).

FAQs

What is chia seed pudding?

When you soak chia seeds in a liquid like water or milk for a minimum of 30 minutes, the mixture thickens and becomes a pudding-like consistency. It’s a very quick, easy, and healthy snack-prep option full of fiber + healthy fats.

What is the best chia pudding ratio?

For single-serve chia pudding, you can mix together 2 tablespoons of chia seeds + 1/2 cup of milk. This recipe is double that. You can always triple or quadruple the recipe to last you the rest of the week.

How can I change up this recipe?

Read further down this blog post for more inspo! I listed different milks, toppings, powders, and spices you can use.

How long does chia seed pudding last for?

Without any toppings (like cut fruit that may brown/spoil quickly, or granola that may get soggy), the chia seed pudding should last in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.

Can I freeze chia seed pudding?

Yes, you can freeze chia seed pudding for up to one month! I recommend freezing it in portions, then thawing it in the fridge overnight.

Different chia pudding flavors

Chia seed pudding is incredibly versatile! You can change the different types of milk, toppings, powders, sweeteners, or spices. Check the list below for some examples and inspiration!

  • Milks: You can make chia pudding with the same amount of almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, whole milk, anything!
  • Powders: Instead of matcha, you can add cacao powder, protein powder, etc.
  • Toppings: granola, fresh/dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, graham crackers, whipped cream, cacao nibs, seeds
  • Sweeteners: granulated sugar, brown sugar, alternative sugar, honey, maple syrup, date syrup
  • Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger

Lastly, you can also blend the chia seed pudding to make it lighter and more mousse-like.

Storing matcha chia seed pudding

You can store chia seed pudding, without any toppings, in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. I recommend keeping the toppings separate so the fruit doesn’t brown/spoil quickly and granola doesn’t become soggy.

You can also freeze the chia seed pudding for up to one month—just make sure you thaw it overnight in the fridge!

I really hope you enjoy this recipe. If you make this easy matcha chia seed pudding, I’d love to see it. You can tag me at #bitesbybianca / @bitesbybianca on Instagram. Enjoy!

Ingredients

For the matcha chia seed pudding:

  • 1 cup any type of milk (240g)
  • 1-2 tbsp sweetener to taste (white/brown/alternative sugar, honey, syrup, agave, etc)
  • 1-2 tsp sifted matcha powder, to taste
  • ¼ cup chia seeds (40g)

For the froggie design:

  • cup heavy cream (30g)
  • ½ tbsp powdered sugar (4g)
  • ½ tsp sifted matcha powder
  • 1 tsp sifted cocoa powder

Toppings:

  • fruit, granola, coconut flakes, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, etc.

Instructions
 

For the matcha chia seed pudding:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk sifted matcha powder, sweetener, and milk until combined.
  • Stir in the chia seeds, then let sit for about 10 minutes. Whisk the mixture to get rid of any chia seed clumps.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and become thick.

For the froggie design:

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and powdered sugar until thickened and is a pipeable consistency.
  • Remove a few tsp of whipped cream and fold in cocoa powder into it until combined. Transfer to piping bag. This will be for the frogs' eyes.
  • Fold in matcha powder to the rest of the whipped cream. Transfer to piping bag.

Assembly:

  • Scoop chia pudding into serving container. If you'd like, you can alternate layers of different toppings with the matcha chia seed pudding!
  • Pipe frog design on top using the green and brown whipped cream.
  • Sprinkle extra toppings and serve.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Store chia seed pudding (toppings kept separately) in airtight container in fridge for up to one week.
