Matcha green tea chia pudding

Matcha green tea pudding2My parents came to LA in March to visit me and my brother, and they really wanted to explore a variety of ethnic markets while they were here. My dad has a vast range of knowledge about global cuisine and cooking, but doesn’t always have the means of getting specialty ingredients because of where he lives (rural Wisconsin). We took them to Galleria in Koreatown and they had a field day—we were there for hours. H O U R S.

I had a lot of fun too, exploring the isles and trying samples of food I couldn’t pronounce. And while I didn’t take home any of the dried fish parts I tried (just no), I did find a few ingredients that struck my fancy. One of them was matcha—a powder derived from green tea leaves. I’ve always been interested in matcha, having seen it used in different recipes on Pinterest, but had no idea where to get it.

Turns out you can buy it online, but just be wary of the quality. Sometimes places will sell a matcha powder mix containing ingredients such as sugar and powdered milk, similar to hot chocolate. Look for culinary grade matcha. It’s pretty expensive, but that’s usually a sign it’s good quality—so don’t go for the cheap stuff!

Let’s talk health. Matcha has a ton of health benefits! Because it’s derived from whole  tea leaves, it’s a more potent source of nutrients (and caffeine!), than steeped green tea. It has a lot of heart disease and cancer fighting antioxidants that also help with blood pressure reduction, anti-aging, and boosting your metabolism. Did I mention the caffeine?? A teaspoon of match mixed with hot water can have up to 3x the caffeine as a cup of steeped green tea.

But the best part about matcha is how versatile it is. It has a grass-like flavor, which bodes well for savory dishes, but you can sweeten it up with sugar, agave, honey, or different extracts like I did with this pudding.

I absolutely love chia pudding. I think it’s because I was obsessed with tapioca Snack Packs when I was little, and it has a similar texture. It’s a great on-the-go breakfast because it’s super easy to make—just toss your ingredients in a mason jar, shake it up, and leave it overnight in the fridge. I love to top it with fresh berries and nuts, but you could top it with anything from coconut flakes to chocolate chips.

Enjoy.
