Rhubarb & Chia Breaky Cocktail0
- 1/2 cup of chia seeds
- 1½ cups of nut milk (I used almond milk)
- ¼ cup frozen berries (I used blueberries)
- ½ teaspoon of stevia
- 1 green apple
- ½ bunch fresh rhubarb
- Cinnamon, to taste (for garnish)
What you do:
- The night before add chia seeds, milk, berries and setvia to a bowl and mix.
- Let sit over night in the fridge.
- The next day wash and cut rhubarb into 2cm chunks and add to the saucepan of 3cm of boiling water. Stirring occasionally. Rhubarb should become a stringy consistency. Once completely stringy let slightly cool.
- Add chia pudding to a glass or bowl, then layer the rhubarb on top, then add more chia pudding again. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a few slices of apple.
Rhubarb is not something I always have in the house and to be honest it’s something that is quite often missed when I go to the farmers markets. God knows why, it’s delicious.
Often thought of as a fruit but really a vegetable, rhubarb is an excellent and healthy food to add to your diet. You can bake with it or have it on a pizza even. For me I like it for breakfasts or in my desserts.
Rhubarb is an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is important to help support a healthy immune system. High is dietary fibre, which helps to maintain regularity within the digestive system. High is Vitamin K, which is thought to help prevent diabetes and it also gives you strong bones and teeth being a good course of calcium.
