Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding

I haven’t really been much into the chia pudding. Don’t get me wrong, I like chia seeds! I like putting them in my smoothies and I like them in my homemade cereals and such, but not really in a pudding. I think it’s because I was never really able to get the chia/liquid ratio right. Or maybe I was too impatient to let it sit long enough to thicken. And since we found some rhubarb at the market recently, I figured I would try giving this whole chia pudding thing a try.

Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding for 2

1/2 cup chia seeds

1 cup strawberries, roughly chopped

1/4 cup rhubarb, roughly chopped

1 banana, roughly chopped

1.5 cups almond milk (or whatever milk you have)

pinch of cinnamon

1-2 figs, depending on your sweetness preference

1 tbsp coconut oil

Put all ingredients in the food processor  and whiz until combined. Pour it equally between two bowls and leave them in the fridge overnight and it’ll be all ready for you the next morning.

My only recommendation to you is to carefully pick out your rhubarb, it shouldn’t look quite as green as the one in the picture or it’ll be really tart ;p It should be a nice, pink colour.

It makes for a nice breakfast (or snack) though! Strawberry and rhubarb are an old favourite for me and Terry, making it into a pudding gives it a fun, new twist. And the fig really lends a nice flavour =)

  1. So not a fan of chia pudding, and tried it so many ways. I’m with you on that!

    FYI: color of rhubarb? Doesn’t matter! It actually generally means that it was force grown, when you buy it from the store (as opposed to grow it yourself). They should just be medium-sized and unblemished. :) So you had some good ones!

  2. It took me a long time to find a way I like chia pudding, so I can totally relate. And you’re right- it’s all in the ratios. Also- I found that blending some of the seeds with the liquid then stirring in some seeds after made for a consistency I prefer :)

    This looks delicious. Strawberry and rhubarb are so delicious together and I bet the fig fits in well!

    1. Yup – finding the proper ratio really makes or breaks a pudding.
      I do find that blending it helps out – I think it also makes sure it’s evenly distributed for better texture.
      Thanks Gabby!

    1. Oh my freaking goodness that sounds great! Chocolate chia pudding for breakfast sounds like a FANTASTIC idea =)
      I think when I’ve made it in the past, I may not have combined it enough with my spoon, so I think I just need to stir more.
      Thanks Brie!
