Green smoothie bowl with matcha chia pudding - and all the toppings you could ask for!
I'm a huge matcha fan. I love it in smoothies, as traditional tea, as coating on my chocolate bliss balls and - as pictured above - in my chia pudding! The combination of matcha and coconut is a really great match - especially with a naturally sweet green smoothie!
Green smoothie bowl with matcha chia pudding
- and all the toppings you could ask for!
1 big, or two small, green banana/s (peeled, sliced and frozen)
1 fennel bulb
1 avokado, peeled and pitted
1 kiwi (buy organic and keep the peel!)
2 handfuls of baby spinach
freshly squeezed lemon juice
Matcha chia pudding
1/2 creamy coconut milk
1 1/2 dl water
1 tsp organic matcha powder
1/2 tsp pure vanilla powder
2 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Fresh fruits or berries (I used kiwi and mango)
fresh herbs (for example mint, lemon balm or Thai basil)
Start with the chia pudding: Bring water and coconut milk to a boil. Pour in to a jar and whisk together with matcha powder, pure vanilla powder, a pinch of Himalayan salt and chia seeds. Wait 10 minutes and then whisk again to prevent clumping. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.*
Mix together the ingredients for the smoothie in a high speed blender until completely smooth. Use water, a little at a time, to get your desired consistency. Add lemon juice to taste.
Divide the chia pudding and smoothie evenly in two bowls. Top with your favourites!
* If putting your chia pudding in fridge over night you don't need to heat up the liquid first - that's just a way to make the chia seeds soak quicker.
