Matcha Kiwi Chia Parfait

This fiber-rich matcha parfait is chock full of antioxidants, protein and healthy fats for a good-for-you snack any time of the day! 

Chia: Plant-Based Powerhouse 

Chia seeds are a tiny but mighty seed that plump when added to liquid. This process is called “blooming”, and helps thicken smoothies and desserts in a matter of hours. When chia seeds are left to soak in liquid, they create thick pudding-like texture and become more like miniature tapioca pearls. Chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which can help support a healthy brain and heart function. 

Kiwi: Green Goodness 

Kiwi fruit is not only a delicious combination of tangy and sweet, but their bright green color is indicative of the antioxidants they contain. Kiwi is a rich source of vitamin-C (more than oranges) and gut-friendly fiber. Best of all, they are easily accessible and available year-round. 

Matcha: Zen Energy

Matcha tea is mixed into the chia pudding along with a touch of agave nectar for balanced sweetness. The matcha adds a vibrant green hue to the pudding and its own powerful antioxidants. Matcha green tea provides calm energy for focus and clarity without jitters thanks to the amino acid L-theanine. 

As if this pudding could get any more delicious, it’s topped with a coconut oat granola for a crunchy finish with tropical notes.  Other great toppings to add include raspberries, strawberries, hemp hearts or walnuts.
