I always thought I would hate the texture of chia seed pudding but this recipe is perfectly smooth and delicious. I love the added juiciness from the blueberries and crunch of the almonds. Read More

I ve made chia pudding before but the almond extract in this was too strong and maple syrup too sweet. I d recommend making it plain and then letting each person add their own sweet/flavor. Read More

Love this after working out or running early morning. Just tastes and feels like health in a bowl. Prefer to mix the chia and almond milk 15 minutes prior to eating and not the night before - seems fresher that way. Can sub or mix any fruit - apple banana coconut flakes. If you want some more crunch can add a spoonful of toasted pecans or almonds on top. Read More
