    Have made this several times now as the whole famalam love it. I reduced the blueberries a bit and added chopped strawberries and mango to the top and also toasted the almonds to give a bit more added crunch and flavour. Delicious.

    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!

    This is such a great healthy and gluten free breakfast. I didn't realise how easy it was to make. I make a Chia seed with strawberry and passionfruit yoghurt, it's amazing, try it here...

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