This is a very quick pudding recipe with chia seeds. No cooking, no fuss, my kind of recipe in the summer. I add strawberry puree, raspberry puree, etc., depending on the availability of fresh fruit.

Over all this recipe is fantastic! I didn't have any almond mild so I substituted vodka. I wasn't sure about the strawberries so I used limes. I didn't have any honey so I added some gin. Since I didn't have any chia left I used ice cubes to help it set up quicker. Boy, once I mixed all the ingredients and poured it over the ice, it was ready to go. I enjoyed it so much that I took it to the work potluck. My co=workers could not believe this was chia pudding. It was a hit! Read More

Overall, the finished product tastes good - but mine never set and turned out with the consistency of a smoothie, not pudding. I did use ground chia seeds instead of whole- that could have been the issue. However, I did research online substituting ground for whole and apparently it should have worked. Read More

I really enjoyed this and the versatility to experiment with different fruit and extract combos. I pureed the milk and strawberries first then added in the rest of the ingredients and gave the blender a quick pulse. After refrigerating for about an hour I gave the pudding a quick stir to prevent clumping. It set up nicely. I made it in the evening for the following day's breakfast. The only slight deviation from the recipe was to use coconut/almond milk blend. Very tasty and healthy. Read More

Perfect! Very easy. Would not change a thing. Although an alternative preparation I have done is to use 1 c almond milk and 1 c vanilla Greek yogurt. Great either way. My daughter loves this too. She will even choose this over ice cream!! Also after preparing this I like to divide it into pint size jars to sit overnight. Perfect for grabbing quickly in the morning on my way out the door. May have to stir a bit when you open and eat. Read More

Have been making chia pudding for some time now and I liked the idea of adding the puréed fruit for a nice change. I didn't add the honey or vanilla because I used the sweetened vanilla almond milk I had on hand. Love to have a bit for breakfast! It's important to stir this a couple times in the first 30-45 minutes or the seeds will settle and you will have a thick base with liquid still sitting on the top. I like to make a big batch in the evening and let it sit over night, it will last a couple days. Read More

Some might call this dessert, but I call it breakfast with my probiotics and any fruit handy and fresh. Excellent! Read More

This is an easy, delicious way to enjoy chia seeds. I let mine sit overnight, covered in the fridge and it gets even thicker this way. But it will never be the exact consistency of pudding. It has its own unique and wonderful consistency that is more in line with tapioca. I love it!! Read More

This is delicious! I even made it completely wrong (Just blended everything) and I ate half of it before I put in in the fridge. Read More

Super easy to make. I divided it into 16 small dessert cups, and that way it only amounts to 60cal. per cup! Makes a great snack if you are on a diet. thanks for uploading! Read More

Just made this recipe and loved it. Substituted 1 tbs agave for a lighter sweetening. Used strawberries and bananas in almond milk~ came out great! Added fresh cut strawberries to top it off ;) Read More
