And I’m back with another chia pudding recipe!
Since it finally Spring weather and fresh produce is more readily available, I wanted to feature some in-season ingredients in this month’s chia pudding: strawberries & rhubarb.
This strawberry rhubarb chia pudding starts off with Organic Traditions chia seeds. If you’re not familiar with the brand, they’re one of my go-to’s for all of my superfoods. One reason I love them is that their products are sustainably sourced, and use only high-quality ingredients. Their superfoods are also all certified organic, wildcrafted and ethically grown.
They also make sure their products sourced are all pure, with no artificial flavours, preservatives and fillers. This is SO important to consider when choosing superfoods.
Superfoods have such great health benefits and can be easily become part of your daily ritual by simply adding them to your foods.
So I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, but one of my favourite superfoods is…chia seeds! These little seeds are loaded with fibre, omegas, protein, and tons of nutrients. They’re also very filling since they can expand 10x their size in liquids.
Making chia pudding with these little seeds is my favourite way to enjoy them, but you can also add chia seeds to smoothies or sprinkle them on top of salads, oatmeal or toast.
This strawberry rhubarb chia pudding is made by mixing chia seeds with coconut milk to give it an extra creamy texture and then topped off with a fresh strawberry rhubarb compote. It’s pretty much like eating a strawberry rhubarb pie in a parfait.
