Rhubarb Chia Seed Pudding


To be quite honest with you, I never really understood how people like chia puddings. It never sounded, neither looked good to me and I tasted one or two and never thought ‘wow, this tastes good’. It was more like ‘hmm okay I feel like a bird eating some little jelly-like seeds’. But I thought that I would give it another go and try to make one myself. I am now one of these people liking chia puddings, better late than never right.

There was another reason, I thought I would give it another go. My digestion – sorry for the TMI – wasn’t the best and I heard so much good stuff about these little seeds helping to fight that bloat. Not only does this breakfast/ snack taste good, it is also super healthy and a life-saver if you have some trouble with your gut.

Well, I don’t know if you can tell after so many breakfast posts that it is my favourite meal of the day. Having a good breaky just sets good intentions for the day and this is one you can prep the night before and look forward to eating it in the morning – it might even help you to get you out of bed!

Enough rambling, this is the easiest recipe ever, just mixing a few things and let the seeds do its magic overnight. You can also prep the rhubarb the night before and reheat it in the morning or eat it cold. Such a yummy seasonal recipe, ready in 10 minutes max.
