Fast forward to today, we’re blending them with blue matcha, a natural blue pigment that not only gives a vibrant color but also packs a nutritional punch.

  • 1 tbsp pea protein powder

  • 4 medium fresh strawberries, diced

🍮 Pea milk or full-fat coconut milk – While the recipe uses almond milk, feel free to swap it out with any plant-based milk you prefer, such as pea milk or even full-fat coconut milk for a richer, creamier texture.

🍮 Erythritol or allulose – If monk fruit sweetener isn’t your go-to, try erythritol or allulose. If you’re not on a vegan low-carb diet, you can use maple syrup, coconut sugar, or even a little agave. These are fantastic for adjusting the sweetness to your liking while keeping it healthy.

🍮 Blue spirulina powder – For an extra nutritional boost and more vibrant blue color, you can add some blue spirulina powder. It will add unique flavors and a stunning visual appeal to your pudding.

🍮 Green spirulina or blue majik – For a different twist, green spirulina or blue majik can be used. They are rich in antioxidants and provide additional nutritional values.

As a Breakfast Parfait

For a nutritious and visually appealing breakfast, layer your blue pudding with vegan yogurt and fresh fruit in a clear container or jar. The vibrant blue color from the blue matcha powder contrasts beautifully with the creamy white yogurt and colorful fruits, making it a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds.

Topped with Fresh Berries

Enhance the flavor by topping the pudding with a small amount of fresh blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries. The berries not only add a burst of freshness and color but also boost the nutritional benefits with additional vitamins and antioxidants.

As a Snack or Dessert

This gel-like blue pudding makes for a perfect snack or dessert. Serve the pudding chilled with a drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of coconut milk for added creaminess. It’s an easy, gluten-free option that satisfies sweet cravings without the guilt.

Topped with Nuts and Seeds

Add a crunchy texture to your pudding by topping it with toasted nuts like cashews or seeds such as sunflower seeds. This not only enhances the nutritional benefits but also adds a satisfying crunch to the smooth, creamy pudding.

Portion Control

Divide the pudding into individual servings when storing. This not only helps with portion control but also makes it easier to just grab one serving at a time. Use small jars or containers to store portions.

Use Airtight Containers

Store your easy blue chia pudding in airtight containers. This helps preserve the flavor and prevents any absorption of other fridge odors. Using airtight containers also makes it easy to grab and go, perfect for busy mornings.

Keep the Pudding in the Fridge

To keep the pudding fresh and ready to enjoy, store it in the fridge. Make this pudding in advance and place it in an airtight container to maintain its creamy texture and flavor. The pudding will stay fresh for up to 4 days, making it a convenient option for a healthy breakfast or snack.

Stir Before Serving

Sometimes, the blue powder or butterfly pea powder might settle at the bottom. Before serving, give it a good stir to ensure everything is well mixed. This will help maintain the pudding’s gel-like consistency and even distribution of the natural food coloring.
