If you’ve read my blog before you will have heard me talk about match green tea before. I reviewed Teapigs green tea powder a while ago and was amazed by how much energy it gave me by adding such a small amount to my morning smoothie.
Kiss Me Organics sell their matcha green tea powder via Amazon in an airtight flat packet so it slides right through your letterbox ready to give you that energy hit. With your order you will also get a recipe guide, Kiss Me Organics encourage you to use the powder in a variety of ways, not just knocked back shot stylee. My lovely friend Charlie made some great recipes with hers but I have to say, I’m all about simplicity so thought I’d try something a bit different.
This matcha green tea powder is so fine you don’t need to faff about blending it, a gentle whisk does the trick. I thought I’d create something with a double health kick and those little chia seeds are all the rage in the health world at the moment. They are high in essential fatty acids, soluble fibre and a good dose of protein to boot. And did I tell you this is the laziest way to get the benefits of both? Introducing my new ‘go to’ breakfast… matcha green tea chia pudding.
Ingredients – Serves 1
1 Cup Almond Milk
1 Teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder (I used Kiss Me Organics)
1 Teaspoon Agave Nectar
1 Teaspoon Maple Syrup
3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
Put the milk, matcha green tea powder, agave nectar and maple syrup into a bowl and whisk until smooth. I was extra lazy and put it in one of my protein shaker bottles with a ball whisk!
Add the chia seeds and stir thoroughly. Pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours if not overnight.
I particularly love this with raspberries to add a bit more sweetness and balance out the slightly bitter taste of the matcha.
