We can all agree that Ice-cream is the perfect treat to beat the heat! Our Matcha Chia Popsicles will bring an authentic Asian flavour to your palate!

Chia seeds are super rich in fibre and keep you feeling full for a long time! They also act as a thickening agent in this recipe, so you can keep the heavy cream back in the fridge!

Matcha is a great substitute for coffee, and we all know how that shit goes down!

The highlight of this recipe is that it’s super healthy! It can be made vegan and gluten free!

Guys! GUYS! Do you want some healthy Chocolate pudding? I know you do! ^_~

Have you heard of Chia seeds? Besides this awefulsome 80’s commercial, I had never heard of them, but recently they’ve made their comeback as a superfood!

They are high in protein, fibre, Omega-3, and help reduce risk of heart disease. No wonder it’s known as a superfood!

Because it doesn’t have any flavour of its own, and thickens any liquid it’s soaked in, it’s perfect as an egg replacement for this yummy chocolate pudding recipe!

This recipe contains no processed sugar, flour or high cholesterol eggs, so it’s not only healthy, it’s vegan and gluten free!

And it’s just 175 calories for one whole cup!
