Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding – By Meghan Shookman

🍓 Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding 🍓

Recipe By: Meghan Shookman (@TheShooksLife)

Ingredients:

Vanilla Cinnamon Chia Pudding
– 1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
– 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
– 1/4 Teaspoons cinnamon
– 1/4 Cups + 2 Tablespoons Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
-2 1/2 Cups Strawberries (Quartered)
-1 Cups of Rhubarb, Sliced (1-2 stalks)
-4 Tablespoons Maple or Date Syrup
-2 Tablespoons Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
-Squeeze of Lemon Juice
Garnish
– Additional fresh sliced strawberries
– Chopped nuts or a grain-free granola

Directions:

Step 1: Make the chia pudding by adding the almond milk and seasonings to a mason jar. Stir to combine. Add the chia seeds and stir until evenly distributed. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Note that I always recommend adding the chia seeds after you’ve mixed everything else together because the seeds very quickly start to clump and adhere to the mixture. Combining the other ingredients first ensures more even distribution of the flavoring.

Step 2: Make the Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Jam by adding the strawberries, rhubarb and maple (or date) syrup to a small pot over medium heat on the stove top. Stir to combine and continue heating until bubbling. Once bubbling, mash the strawberries and rhubarb with a fork or potato masher, then add the chia seeds. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Remove from heat and give it a squeeze of lemon. Store in a covered mason jar for up to a week.

Step 3: Layer equal amounts of the jam into 3-4 glasses or mason jars. Top with the chia pudding once it has set and garnish with additional freshly sliced strawberries as well as chopped nuts or granola.
