This is my attempt at making something green for St Patrick’s day.
Now, I’m not sure what the huge fuss about St Patrick’s Day is. I mean, I’m not Irish. I’m originally from England, and I don’t even celebrate St George’s Day.
But I think this year I will jump on the St Patrick’s Day bandwagon, if only to make some green colored food.
And I have also only recently jumped on the chia seed pudding bandwagon. I know it’s not for everyone, but I love them! It’s so easy to make. And the overnight aspect to these puddings = quick and easy breakfast = no more rushing in the morning to get ready!!
I usually top chia seed pudding with some homemade granola or blueberries, but you can top your pudding with anything you like. I doubt you will be able to find a truly awful combo, because this goes with pretty much everything.
And even though it doesn’t look too green in the pictures, I assure you, these are every bit as fit to be part of your St Patrick’s day celebration as anything else. Enjoy!
Matcha and Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding
What you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- In a medium bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the chia seeds until fully combined. Mix in the chia seeds and
refrigerate. Over the course of the next half hour, whisk the pudding
every 10 minutes as it begins to thicken. This prevents the chia seeds
from clumping. After the half hour is up, keep refrigerated for 3 hours
