What you’ll need

Serves 1

  • 1/3 tsp. matcha powder
  • 4 fl oz. (120ml) soy milk
  • 3.9 oz. (110g) soy yogurt
  • 1.5 tbsp. chia seeds
  • sweetener (optional)
  • 2.8 oz. (80g) frozen mango
  • splash of water

First up, we have matcha powder, the vibrant green superstar of this recipe. Packed with antioxidants and a gentle caffeine kick, it’s like a mini energy boost in every spoonful. Plus, its earthy, slightly sweet flavor adds a delightful depth to our pudding.

Next on the lineup is chia seeds, those tiny powerhouses of nutrition. These little gems are loaded with fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, making them a fantastic addition to any meal. When soaked overnight, they transform into a pudding-like consistency that’s both satisfying and nourishing.

Now, let’s talk about our creamy soy milk and soy yogurt. Not only are they dairy-free alternatives packed with plant-based goodness, but they also provide a smooth, luscious base for our pudding. With their subtle sweetness and creamy texture, they’re the perfect partners for our matcha and chia seeds.

And last but certainly not least, we have the star of our show: sweet, juicy mangoes! Bursting with tropical flavor and vibrant color, they add a refreshing sweetness to our pudding. Blended into a smooth puree, they create a sunny swirl of mango goodness that’s as irresistible as it is nutritious.

With these key ingredients, we’re creating a matcha masterpiece that’s not only delicious but also nourishing and satisfying. So, gather your ingredients and let’s get cooking!

Some useful tips

Here are some useful tips to help you perfect your Matcha Chia Pudding with Mango Puree:

  1. Whisk Vigorously: When mixing the matcha powder with soy milk, be sure to whisk it thoroughly to ensure the matcha is well incorporated and there are no clumps. This will give your pudding a smooth consistency and vibrant green color.
  2. Refrigerate Overnight: For the best results, refrigerate the chia pudding mixture overnight. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and develop a pudding-like texture. It also gives the flavors time to meld together, resulting in a more delicious pudding.
  3. Adjust Sweetness: Taste the pudding mixture before refrigerating and adjust the sweetness to your liking. You can add more or less sweetener depending on your preference and the sweetness of your mangoes.
  4. Blend Mango Smooth: When making the mango puree, blend it until smooth for a silky texture. If you prefer a chunkier puree, pulse the blender a few times until you reach your desired consistency.
  5. Layer with Love: When assembling the pudding, layer the chia pudding and mango puree in a jar or glass for a beautiful presentation. You can alternate layers or swirl the mango puree into the pudding for a marbled effect.
  6. Get Creative with Toppings: Have fun with toppings! Sprinkle on some coconut flakes, chopped nuts, or fresh fruit for added flavor and texture. A drizzle of honey or maple syrup on top can also take it to the next level.
  7. Serve Chilled: Serve the pudding chilled for the most refreshing and delicious experience. It’s the perfect way to start your day or enjoy as a healthy snack or dessert.

Follow these tips, and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a delicious and satisfying Matcha Chia Pudding with Mango Puree!

Some serving suggestions

Here are some serving suggestions to elevate your Matcha Chia Pudding with Mango Puree:

  1. Fresh Fruit: Top your pudding with slices of fresh fruit like strawberries, kiwi, or banana for a burst of color and flavor. The combination of fresh fruit and creamy pudding is simply irresistible.
  2. Crunchy Granola: Sprinkle a handful of crunchy granola over the top for added texture and a satisfying crunch. It adds a delicious contrast to the creamy pudding and fruity mango puree.
  3. Nutty Goodness: Add a sprinkle of chopped nuts such as almonds, walnuts, or pecans for a dose of healthy fats and extra crunch. Toasted coconut flakes also make a tasty and tropical topping.
  4. Dollop of Yogurt: Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt on top of the pudding for extra creaminess and tanginess. It’s a delightful addition that enhances the overall flavor and texture.

Some storage suggestions

Here are some storage suggestions to help you keep your Matcha Chia Pudding with Mango Puree fresh and delicious:

  1. Refrigerate Overnight: After assembling your pudding, cover it tightly with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and develop a pudding-like consistency while also chilling the flavors for maximum deliciousness.
  2. Store in an Airtight Container: Transfer any leftove to an airtight container before refrigerating. This helps prevent any odors from the fridge from seeping into the pudding and keeps it fresh for longer.
  3. Consume Within 2-3 Days: Chia pudding can typically be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. However, for the best texture and flavor, it’s recommended to enjoy it within the first couple of days after making it.
  4. Separate Components: If you’ve already layered the pudding with mango puree, store any remaining puree separately in a sealed container. This prevents the puree from making the pudding too watery or altering its texture.
  5. Mix Before Serving: Before serving any leftover pudding, give it a good stir to redistribute the ingredients. This helps ensure a consistent texture and flavor throughout.
  6. Freeze Individual Portions: If you have excess pudding and want to extend its shelf life, consider freezing individual portions in freezer-safe containers. Thaw them overnight in the refrigerator before enjoying.

By following these storage suggestions, you can keep your Matcha Chia Pudding with Mango Puree fresh and tasty for as long as possible!
