I don’t know about you, but these dark evenings are making me crave sweet things and desserts. I’m trying to be good as I know the festive season is fast approaching, and I don’t want be competing waistlines with Father Christmas!
I find if I have some healthy snacks prepared, I am a lot less likely to grab sugary ones. So I thought I’d share one of my favourite guilt free desserts with you. This Green Tea Chai Seed Pudding has loads of health benefits and very little sugar content – you could leave out the maple syrup completely, and just add more fruit to sweeten if you prefer.
Chai seeds may be small but they’re very powerful; they’re full of fibre, antioxidants, high in omegas, and are said to help with inflammation and blood sugar levels.
Match Green Tea Powder is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body, and helps reduce heart disease, type 2 diabetes and can even help with weight loss! Yes a pudding thats good for you!
In a bowl, add chia seeds and non-dairy milk then stir to combine.
In another bowl, add matcha powder, then slowly add a little hot water and whisk until smooth. This prevents the matcha powder from clumping when mixed into the chia pudding.
Add the matcha mixture, maple syrup and vanilla to the chia seed mixture; stir. Place it in the fridge and let it sit overnight, or at least 2-3 hours.
Top with cacao nibs or fresh fruit
Hope this recipe helps keep you away from the Quality Street and mince pies!
