I like this recipe. It is great basic starter chia pudding. Very easy to do. I do a couple of things differently, though. I use honey instead of maple syrup in the initial mix with the chia pudding. I also do not mix additional maple syrup/honey with the strawberries before serving. I simply prefer mine less sweet. And if the berries are good, I feel they are flavorful enough on their own. Also I ONLY use greek yogurt when I make this. I just feel the density of greek yogurt holds up better with the chia seeds. And lastly, after the initial 30 minute soak, i gently mix the ingredients to redistribute. I then divide it into pint size jars to sit overnight. These are perfect size for me to easily grab in the morning and head out the door. FYI, I also like this without any additional fruit, etc. On it's own is good, too. Also, if you like this recipe, consider checking out the recipe for Almond Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding on allrecipes, as well. It's wonderful!! Read More

I have been experimenting with chia seed recipes and I really liked this one. I used almond slivers that i just sprinkled over the top. The maple syrup added just enough sweetness without it being too sweet. Read More

Dessert for breakfast and guilt free to boot. That s what this is. I saw this recipe in the Jan 2018 magazine. It suggested using dairy free yogurt to keep it vegan which I did. I added a bit of cinnamon and cardamom too. What a treat. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Tried chia pudding at First Watch restaurant & loved it so looked up some recipes. This one I agree is an easy basic one. I did not make the "topping " either but used just fresh fruit. Calories were pretty high per 1/2 cup serving - about 125 without the fruit. The maple syrup added about 100 calories (25 per serving) so I may use brown sugar Truvia next time. Going to experiment with cocoa powder and chocolate almond milk also. This is great for "grab and go" breakfast or for a mid-morning or -afternoon snack. Read More

This has become my go-to breakfast to bring to work as it is easy to prepare a large batch to last all week. I've been adding a tablespoon of ground flax before serving for the extra health benefits, and it works well and adds a bit of a grainy texture. I love how the texture is so much like tapioca pudding, it makes me feel like a kid eating dessert! Can never get tired of it, which is great for someone who doesn't have much of an appetite for breakfast normally. Read More
