Matchia Parfait

Since I’ve been making lots of granola, I've been making lots of granola-topped and granola-layered creations, like this Matchia Parfait. You may be wondering what Matchia is. I would be, too. My definition of Matchia is the mix of matcha and chia. I love matcha lattés and chia seeds have SO many health benefits packed in a tiny little seed. If you like matcha, then you'll love this sweet, simple, and energizing parfait!

For the Chia Pudding Layer:

  • 1/4 cup coconut yogurt

  • 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon agave or pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder

For the Matcha Smoothie Layer:

  • 1 large banana, chopped and frozen

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder

  • 3-4 frozen coconut cubes

  • 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk, or as needed

  • Agave or sweetener of choice, to taste

For the Remaining Parfait:


  1. Place all the Chia Pudding ingredients in a jar.

  2. Shake or stir to combine, then let it sit for at least a couple hours.

  3. For the Matcha Smoothie layer, blend until smooth, adding almond milk as needed to blend.

  4. In a Mason jar, layer the granola, matcha smoothie, and chia pudding.

  5. Add coco whip on top with more granola and a sprinkle of the vanilla chia coconut flakes.

  6. Enjoy!
