Matcha Coconut Chia Green Breakfast Pudding

I love the taste of matcha - from its pure unadulterated simple hot cup of calming green tea form to its less innocent guise in mochi or ice cream.

It's a happy coincidence that matcha is also chock full of antioxidants, is rich in fibre, chlorophyll and vitamins, and lowers cholesterol and blood sugar.

This is by far one of my all time favourite ways to consume it. The coconut milk adds a creaminess, while the banana adds a natural sweetness negating the need for any additional sweeteners.

Dessicated coconut adds a bit of bite to the chia pudding and, if the antioxidant benefits of matcha in itself weren't sufficient, I enhanced it with a big handful of baby spinach to bring extra oomph to the green colour and a big hit of iron, vitamins K, A and C and folic acid.

Feel free to play around with toppings once the base is made. I like it best with a handful of fresh berries, a few chunks of my Sweet Potato Cocoa Brownies (For recipe Sweet Potato Cocoa Brownies), a sprinkle of extra coconut and some bright orange goji berries peeking through.

Raw cacao nibs and a sprinkle of toasted nuts also work really well.

Breakfast doesn't get better than this and nor do guilt-free puddings! x
