This Matcha Cinnamon Chia Pudding is vegan, gluten-free and sweetened with maple syrup. It can be made the day ahead and is therefore an excellent breakfast idea when you don’t have a lot time in the mornings or you tend to oversleep.

The 2-layered Matcha Cinnamon Chia Pudding is not only pretty to look at, but also yummy and it keeps me full the whole morning until lunch. It’s a great post-yoga/workout treat as well!

The basic formula for Chia Puddings

I’ve found the perfect ratio to be:

  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds

You can add any kind of spices or flavors (cinnamon, cardamom, cocoa,..) or fruits into the mixture!

Ingredients
 
 

Matcha Chia Seed Pudding Layer

  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk - I used unsweetened rice coconut milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon matcha
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds

Cinnamon Chia Seed Pudding Layer

  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk - I used unsweetened rice coconut milk again
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon chia seeds

Instructions
 

  • For the matcha chia seed pudding layer, combine the plant-based milk, matcha powder, and maple syrup in a bowl. Whisk together. Add the chia seeds and give it another whisk.
  • For the cinnamon chia seed pudding layer, combine the plant-based milk, cinnamon powder and maple syrup in another bowl. Whisk together. Add the chia seeds. Give it another whisk. Store both containers in the fridge for 5-8 hours or overnight to thicken. (I usually prepare the chia pudding the day ahead and let it sit in the fridge overnight.)
  • Then spoon the matcha layer into a glass jar, and add the cinnamon layer on top. Enjoy!

Does this need to be made with a specific matcha powder? I have Tenzo Tea’s organic matcha but a lot of them look the same

I tried the recipe but it didn't thicken. I just replaced the maple sirup by honey is it why ?

I don't think it's because of that substitute! Have you given it enough time to thicken? I always like to leave it in the fridge overnight. Have you added enough chia seeds? 3 tablespoons chia seeds per 1 cup of liquid is the basic ratio. I've used American measuring spoons, so 1 tablespoon chia seeds would be 14 grams :)
