Wouldn’t you love to eat such a cute little chai pudding breakfast tomorrow morning?

I don’t know if it’s the cute mason jar, the pretty pink and white colors or the perfect sweet and tart combo of strawberries and rhubarb, but I am in love with these chia pudding cups.

This healthy springtime chia pudding breakfast has been bringing a great dose of joy to my mornings!

Strawberries and rhubarb are a match made in heaven. Rhubarb is naturally pretty tart but the strawberries soften this tartness, and they bring each other’s flavors out.

This fruity spring combo is amazing in pies or crumbles/crips and…chia puddings! These strawberry rhubarb chia pudding breakfast cups seriously feel like dessert but are 100% acceptable for a healthy breakfast.

What I love the most about chia puddings for breakfast is that you can make them the night before and enjoy a delicious and nutritious sweet breakfast the next day.

With minimal efforts, because mornings are hard enough!

This chia pudding recipe makes about 4 servings so you can prep everything on Sunday night and have your breakfast ready for the four following mornings.

All you have to do is top you chia pudding breakfast cups with a dollop of Greek yogurt, granola or your favorite toppings and dig in!

Ingredients

  • 18 oz rhubarb 500 g, peeled and cut into 1.5 inches - 4 cm logs (weighted after being peeled and cut - about 10 stalks)
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 9 oz strawberries 250 g, hulled and cut into quarters (weighted after being hulled) + a few for serving
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Toppings

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup granola use gluten free granola to make this recipe GF

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine rhubarb, lemon juice, and honey. Split the vanilla bean down its length using a paring knife and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and the pod to the saucepan.

  2. Cook on medium heat for about 7 minutes. Add the strawberries and cook for another 10 minutes or until the rhubarb is very tender. (The fruits should release lots of water - it's perfectly normal- this juice is perfect to make chia pudding)

  3. Remove from the heat. Add 3 tablespoons chia seeds and mix well. Transfer to a container, cover with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  4. When ready to eat, layer in a glass 1/4 of chia pudding, 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 to 2 tablespoons of granola. Top with fresh strawberries and serve immediately. 

  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make three other servings (if you are not planning to eat the other servings straight away, assemble only at the last minute).

Recipe Notes

To make this breakfast portable and bring it to work with you, layer the chia pudding with greek yogurt in a jar with a lid, pack the granola in a separate container and add it when you're ready to eat!

  1. This sounds wonderful. I’m wondering if peeling the rhubarb is the answer to getting my husband to eat it. The last time I made the strawberry rhubarb quinoa porridge he said, “never again!” because he hated the string. Weird that I’ve never thought about peeling the rhubarb before… Also a question: would a teaspoon of vanilla paste (or extract, or powder) be equivalent to a vanilla bean? I don’t do vanilla beans… 🙂

    1. My mom always peeled them when we were kids to avoid having too many strings so it could definitely work for your husband as well! Vanilla pasta would definitely work too. I like to use vanilla beans once in a while because I love the flavor but pasta or extract would be good alternatives!

    1. If you can’t eat dairy, you can use a coconut yogurt or you can omit it altogether and it will still be good!

  2. Is there anything more delicious than Strawberries and Rhubarb? I am a mega fan of this combination and cannot wait to try this chia pudding recipe!
