Healthy Matcha Green Tea Chia Seed Pudding

If you like matcha, then BOY, do I have the recipe for you!  This Healthy Matcha Green Tea Chia Seed Pudding is bursting with matcha green tea flavor.  This pudding is sweet and has got an amazing texture — smooth with a slight crunch in every delicious bite.  The matcha flavor is brightened up a bit with a tiny bit of almond extract which makes for an earthy, natural, sophisticated pudding.

This Matcha Green Tea Chia Seed Pudding is perfect on its own, but you can take it to the next level by topping it with some coconut cream, freshly sliced strawberries, grated white chocolate, and a little extra sprinkle of matcha.

I think it’s time to dig in, yes?  YES.

  2. Few questions: how many servings? You just say pour into jars. 15 drops almond extract = what it actual measurements? 5 packets = what in actual measurements? Recipe sounds good but the details are a little vague.

    • The measurements are exactly how I used them — so the almond extract, that’s literally 15 drops out of the bottle using a dropper. The sweetener is also 5 packets (have you ever used packets like the kinds at coffee shops?). And the recipe yields 3 servings (recipe yield is in the yellow ribbon on top of the recipe box). Hope this helps! 🙂

    • Thank you for asking this question! I couldn’t find the servings listed either. I see it now after jessica”s response to you, but I don’t know how long it would have taken me otherwise.

  5. I just had this and it was delicious! I made it with macadamia nut milk. Yum! Thank you for the recipe.

    I had difficulty determining how many servings it was, as well, and made the whole recipe for my husband and myself, but we both were full before finishing. So the 3 person serving size would have been perfect.

    I don’t use sweetening packets, but had some liquid stevia. I added 8 drops and then just added sugar until it tasted sweet enough. I think I added a few spoonfuls, but didn’t really measure.

    The matcha chia pudding turned out excellent. The almond flavor was a nice addition to it.

    • Thank you so much for making the recipe Michelle! I never thought to use macadamia nut milk in here before but that sounds AWESOME! The recipe yield is in the yellow ribbon on the top of the recipe box… this recipe actually yields 3 servings, so you were both on point 🙂

  6. It looks delicious! 🙂 I have never tried Matcha before. I think it’s time for me to try it, and I’ll start with this recipe. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  8. I have not tried this recipe yet but is there any other sweetener than Stevie that can be used. It seems to leave an after taste for me and I have not made other recipes that call for it. I tried using less than what is suggested but that is all I taste.

  14. Thank you so much for the calorie and nutritional information for the recipe. I love that. Was wondering what the ingredients would be if you just wanted to make one serving instead of three? Maybe cutting it all in half?

  15. I would love to make this but don’t have almond extract. Is it for flavor or is it necessary for other reasons?

  16. Just made this last night, but the results were all liquid-y. Any suggestions?

    • That’s really strange. Chia seeds should have absorbed all of the liquid… and a lot of readers have made this successfully. Did you substitute any of the ingredients or change any of the measurements?

        Hi,
        I tripled the exact ingredients as we wanted to make 9 servings. However, when we poured it into a big plastic container and sealed lid while refrigerating it for over 24 hours the batch was very liquidity when we went to eat it. Do you know why that happened? Is it because it wasn’t individual servings which didn’t allow chia seeds to absorb it?
        Please advise.
        Thank you:)

      • I have no idea what could have happened… it’s possible that not dividing it into individual servings could have had a part in that. I think I’ve done something similar before and all the chia seeds rose to the top of the bowl. I just whisked it well to reincorporate the seeds back into the mixture and let it sit for a little longer, which solved the problem. Maybe try that?

  17. Hi,
    I found an Instagram user had stolen my photo from my business, so I started looking around at her other photos and have discovered she’s stolen one of yours too. I filled out a copyright report (go to the photo and start following the steps starting with the … and following copyright violation form steps) we actually contacted her but didn’t hear back, after I filled in the form Instagram removed her post. It’s christine Lusita a fitness celeb and she’s using our beautiful photos to advertise her book, I bought her kindle version to check it’s not in there and yours isn’t either (her food photos are pretty terrible hence stealing ours!) best of luck fellow food blogger xx
