Matcha Avocado Chia Seed Pudding

Elevate your protein and fiber rich chia seed pudding with added antioxidants, vitamins and heart healthy monounsaturated fats. A special tea that delivers caffeinated energy without the buzz, Matcha is a powdered whole leaf green tea that can be mixed into puddings, baked goods or made into a latte. It’s unique in that it supports relaxation (without drowsiness) and the production of happy hormones dopamine and serotonin thanks to the amino acid L-Theanine. Avocado adds satisfaction to this chia pudding while adding vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium and folate. Enjoy!
