    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... https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/03/14/strawberry-chia-seeded-yoghurt/

    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.

    You can get them in Holland and Barrett or health food stores.
