Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda from Best breakfast recipe for vegans!! This chia porridge tastes like desert! It is decadent! It is an absolute must to make this recipe! It tastes excellent and it is healthy! I used unsweetened 30 calorie almond milk and it will work just fine. The dates will do the job of sweetening the dish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lamaca789 from Keto Alternative to Muesli or Oatmeal I am in a Keto diet (high fat, low carb). I am always looking for SIMPLE, FAST and CONVENIENT recipes. SIMPLE - no complicated ingredients (substituted organic coconut for the dates for sweetness and density). FAST - pour and blend. CONVENIENT - prep the night for a morning delight. You can get creative. I added seeds, other nuts (yes even almonds, overnight to make it soft) and cacao nibs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFLiz from Good base recipe I see where some commenters are coming from. I agree, the chia pudding as-is was a little plain but is a good foundation for add-ins like a scoop of peanut butter and 1/2 a banana or why not just throw in the 1 cup of fruit to flavor the pudding which is what I did. I don't think there's a need to add sugar, the fruit (if ripe) is the perfect sweetener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seosamh from Easy to make and incredibly tasty This recipe took all of five minutes to make and I absolutely love it. Much sweeter than I anticipated and served with some fresh blueberries, it made for an absurdly tasty and healthy breakfast. I only needed half to feel full. Whether you're eating it in a single serving or two or three, it's pretty darned cheap, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eyon from Good breakfast or snack I used soy milk, instead of almond milk for a creamier product and increased protein content. And I used only 2 dates, as I don’t care for much sweetness. Came out great! With the substitution of soy milk, for me it is a good carb/protein balance

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sono from Really bad taste I completed this as described and it had a really bad taste. I even added a banana to mask the taste and it still tasted bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LynnB278 from What not to have for breakfast. Desert or snack I love my vitamix. It helps me prepare healthy meals. But this porridge is ridiculous. How much sugar do we need in our breakfasts? Please come up with some healthier ideas.
