Probiotic Matcha Chia Pudding

Leeza Zurwick


What could be better than an energizing and quick Matcha Chia Pudding on a hot summer day! Packed full of nutrients, healthy probiotics and energizing matcha, this fun recipe really has it all. With a bit of prep, this Chia Pudding is perfect for those with super busy mornings looking for something they can quickly grab and go, very similar to overnight oats. We’re so thrilled to announce that we collaborated with our friends over at Blume on this delish recipe.

Part 1 – Making the Matcha Chia Pudding


2 cans coconut milk

1/4 cup water kefir grains

1 tbsp vanilla

1tsp Blume Matcha Coconut Blend

5 tbsp chia seeds


  • Begin by fermenting the coconut milk. Add both cans to a brewing jar, then add the grains. Stir well to incorporate into the milk and grains. Leave in a consistently warm place for 24 hours, covered but not sealed.
  • After 24 hours, coconut milk should be lightly fermented. It may taste slightly sour.
  • Strain the milk into a glass jar using a nylon strainer. Rinse the grains well under warm tap water to remove all coconut residue and return them to dormancy.
  • Add remaining ingredients into the jar and mix well. Place in fridge to thicken overnight (or at least 4 hours.)

Part 2 – Topping the Chia Pudding


1 cup chopped up strawberries

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tsp vanilla


  • Combine ingredients into a saucepan. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Once juice begins to form, mash some of the strawberries.
  • Cook for 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
  • Remove from heat and leave to cool.
  • Once cool, top Matcha Chia Pudding with the Strawberry Compote. Store extra compote into the refrigerator.
  • Relax & enjoy this tasty treat.


Although water kefir and milk kefir are different grain cultures, both ferment and produce probiotic foods. Water kefir grains respond only to plant-based milk, while milk kefir grains respond only to dairy milk. Water kefir is the perfect alternative for vegans who want the health benefits from kefir without dairy products.

Matcha is made from whole tea leaves! 

Bonus: Blume’s Coconut Matcha Blend has half the caffeine compared to one cup of coffee; giving you energy you need without that caffeine crash all while fortifying the immune system. Win-win!
