Matcha Chia Pudding with Cacao

Matcha Chia Pudding with Cacao

This nutritious matcha chia pudding breakfast treat is straightforward and effortless to make. You can prep it the day before, and overnight the chia seeds will expand into a tasty, chewy tapioca-like pudding. With toppings or without, it’s filling and delicious. You can make a few individual servings at a time in mini mason jars —they’ll keep in the fridge for up to three days, so you can have breakfast ready to go all week long.
