This naturally sweetened strawberry rhubarb chia pudding is a healthy way to start your day off right.
This strawberry rhubarb chia pudding is the perfect way to start off your morning. We are nearing the tail end of the rhubarb season here in Chicago, so you’ve got to enjoy it before it’s gone! Strawberry and rhubarb are such a classic pairing.
Simmer the two together in a saucepan with a little water and maple syrup and you have got this magical compote that is perfect for stirring into chia pudding, yogurt, oatmeal, and more! The recipe makes extra, so keep it tucked away in the fridge for spooning on things all week long. (I know I do!)

If I had thought ahead a bit more, I would have added a layer of blueberries to make a fitting breakfast for Fourth of July! Shucks. Maybe by next year I’ll be ahead of the game? Have a lovely long weekend!

- 1 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes

I make this all the time and absolutely LOVE it…my favorite chia seed pudding!
I grew up with rhubarb but being the only one at home that likes it it would be hard to make it and keep my fingers out of it
