    Completely delicious. First time I've had almond milk or chia seeds, overall flavour and texture was really pleasant and fresh. A lovely start to the day.

    Was a bit sceptical about eating cold porridge, but it was delicious - A firm favourite.

    Loved this, don't usually soak the oats for this long, and this - plus the chia seeds - made it really creamy. Doesn't need the honey. Can use any berries, I used cherries

    This has been my breakfast for the past 3 months and I absolutely love it! You can also replace the blueberries with raspberries or strawberries. You lose the benefits of the blueberries but it's still lovely!

    Really tasty. I didn't even need honey as it was sweet enough.

    Frog swan is all I could think about. Straight in the bin and made porridge with almond milk instead.

    I was taken aback by the cost of chia seeds, but was glad I bought them. This breakfast was delicious and kept me full through to lunchtime. I strayed from the diet plan and made it again the next day.
