Nude Breakfast Chia Cups
Simple and healthy Matcha Chia breakfast Cups are such a great way to get a filling and delicious breakfast on the go.
Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium . Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
INGREDIENTS For the Chia Layer:
1 C Non Dairy Milk
2 tsp Pure Maple Syrup
1 1/2 tsp Organic Matcha
1/4 C Chia Seeds
For the Toppings:
1. In a lidded container add milk, maple syrup, Matcha and chia seeds. Shake vigorously to mix throughly. Allow to sit 10 minutes, shake jar again so the chia seeds don't stick together, then allow to set at least an hour and a half before serving. I typically leave mine overnight to be enjoyed the next day. Alternatively, if spooning the chia pudding into bowls instead of individual serving size jars, you can make it in one batch using a larger jar.
2. When ready to eat, top with desired fruit and/or other superfoods.
3. Chia pudding can be stored in a lidded container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
