I’m sure we’ve all had chia seed pudding before.. Especially living in Los Angeles! But on those overcast mornings sometimes you just want something a little more cozy. This recipe is quick to make with no prep and is loaded with superfoods. With the chia seeds and flaxseeds you get that desired consistency and creaminess, similar to oatmeal BUT it’s grain and gluten free!
This porridge also gives you that extra natural boost of energy with our green tea matcha powder whisked in. Takes only about 5 minutes to heat up and is served with a homemade blackberry sauce, coconut yogurt, sliced pears, and a delicious spoonful of pistachio butter.
