This vegan and gluten-free Matcha Cinnamon Chia Pudding is perfect for breakfast! It fills you for hours without making you feel super stuffed.
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!

Matcha Chia Seed Pudding Layer
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
- 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!
