  • Measure out the matcha into a small bowl.
  • Shake the can of coconut milk well, and whisk ¼ cup of it with the matcha. (It’s okay if the coconut milk has some clumps—you’ll blend them smooth with an immersion blender later.)
  • Stir in the gelatin to bloom/rehydrate. Set the bowl aside.
  • Next, heat the remaining coconut milk, honey, and salt over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sweetened milk is steaming, but not boiling.
  • Once the flavored coconut milk is hot, take the pot off the heat and add the gelatin/matcha/coconut milk mixture to the pot and stir well. Pour in the vanilla extract.
  • Use an immersion blender to whisk everything together, or transfer the matcha milk to a blender and mix until uniform. No matcha chunks, please!
  • Pour the matcha mixture into a medium bowl. Chill the pudding in the fridge for 30 minutes uncovered. Then, cover and chill for an additional 1½ hours or until solid. You can keep the pudding in the fridge for up to 4 days before serving.
  • When you’re ready to serve the pudding, grab a hand mixer and beat the pudding until it’s nice and fluffy. Be patient—it will go from chunky to smooth, I promise!
  • Divide the pudding into four bowls or cups. Plop on some fresh raspberries, if desired, and serve ’em up!



  • If you refrigerate the leftover pudding, beat it again with a hand or stand mixer to get the creamy pudding texture.
  • You can store the pudding in the fridge for up to four days.
