Matcha Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are energizing and excellent for reducing blood lipids! Matcha is a super nutrient dense version of green tea. If you make this at night, you can enjoy it as a super energizing breakfast!

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, almond, or soy milk
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 4 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups mixed berries of your choice (blueberries, sliced strawberries, raspberries, etc)

Blend the milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and matcha together in a blender until smooth. If you prefer not to use the blender, vigorously whisk it together until all of the matcha is dissolved. Pour the liquid into a bowl, and stir in chia seeds. Stir it again in 5 minutes intervals (If you skip this, it will all clump together in an unappealing way.) After 15 minutes if intermittent stirring, place the pudding in the fridge, and allow to sit for an hour or overnight. It may take a little longer than one hour depending on the milk you use. It should have the consistency of tapioca pudding when done. Stir the mixture once more, and serve topped with fresh berries.


Super Food Pudding

This “pudding” doubles as a dessert or breakfast! The chia seeds are so full of nutrients that we consider them a super food. They energize you better than coffee, but won’t impact your sleep. They also contain omega 3 fatty acids, minerals, and protein.


¼ cup chia seeds
1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1½ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen will work)
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2-3 Tbsp pure maple syrup


Combine all ingredients into a high powered blender. (If using frozen strawberries, allow to thaw first.) Blend on high until smooth and creamy. If mixture seems too thick, add a little extra milk. Transfer to a bowl and chill for about 30 minutes before serving.


Cherry Garcia Raw Chocolate Smoothie

If you’re looking for a delicious, quick, easy, and incredibly nutrient dense breakfast option, look no further! Hemp seeds provide protein and omega three fatty acids, the cacao powder is through the roof with antioxidants and even chemicals that make you happy, cherries reduce inflammation and pain, coconut oil helps your metabolism and nourishes your brain and skin, and much, much more. And why not satisfy your chocolate craving first thing?


¼ cup hemp seeds
1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced
½ tsp vanilla extract (preferably the glycerin based one)
1 tiny sprinkle sea salt
1 Tbsp raw maple syrup
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
½ – 1 cup water
4-5 ice cubes (depending on how cold you like it)
¼ cup frozen cherries
1 Tbsp raw coconut oil (optional)
1 tiny sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional)


Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

Note: We heartily endorse the Vitamix blender for the smoothest smoothies!
