Ingredients for the Vanilla Chia Pudding Layer (bottom layer)

  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
For the matcha cream layer (middle)
  • 1/3 cup yogurt of your choice (RFR tip: use raw coconut yogurt for a truly raw version)

  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional, see how sweet you like it)
For the vanilla cream layer (top)
  • 2-3 tablespoons yogurt of your choice
  • pinch on vanilla powder or splash of extract


  1. Start by making the chia seed pudding layer. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and let this sit for about 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Once it's ready, spoon it into a cup and top it off with the middle layer. To make the middle layer, simply mix all the ingredients into a bowl and then top on to the chia pudding.
  3. Repeat with the vanilla cream layer and then top onto your matcha layer. Finish off the three layer pudding with whatever fruit you like!
