Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk {or any dairy/non-diary milk}
  • 9 tablespoons chia seeds {i.e. white chia seeds}
  • 2 "ginger tea" bags {i.e. Pukka Three Ginger herbal tea}
  • 2 matcha green tea bags {i.e. The Republic of Tea Double Green Matcha Tea}
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod sliced open OR 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk {i.e. Native Forest canned} or other dairy/non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • 2 cups cut up fresh strawberries and/or fresh mango

Instructions

  • Pour almond milk in to a medium sized sauce pan, the add tea bags and sliced open vanilla bean {if using} to the pan. Heat on high until boiling, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 or more minutes, depending upon how strong you want the tea/milk base.
  • While the milk and tea are infusing, add 9 tablespoons chia seeds to a medium sized jar, along with cold coconut milk, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. If you aren't using a vanilla bean, add vanilla extract as well.
  • When the infused tea/milk is ready, pour it in to the jar with the other ingredients {be careful since the mixture will be hot}, place the lid to the jar on tightly,and shake well to combine ingredients. You will also want to remove the lid from the jar, and stir the seeds with a fork to remove any clumps.
  • Let sit for ~ 10 minutes for warm pudding, then top w/ strawberries and/or mango, OR refrigerate for ~ 2 hours to allow to cool before serving, then top with fruit.

Notes

The total time is approximate based on whether you prefer warm or cold pudding. Warm pudding will be ready ~ 10 minutes after combining the ingredients in the jar, but if you prefer cold pudding, refrigerate for ~ 2hours before serving. For future reference, if you choose to make chia pudding without heating the liquid first, allow ~ 4 hours to thicken in the refrigerator.
