    easy to make and it made a nice change from porridge - I replaced the soya with cows milk and used frozen summer berries instead of blueberries. (handy tip! I got the chia seeds from at less than half Holland  -  15 Jan 2013


    LOTS of potential with this one. I'll do it again with other berries, other added ingredients, nuts, etc. Needed a bit more sweet for my taste.  -  18 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Everyone complains of lack of flavor. The one essential missing ingredient....salt! And salt is NOT something I like. Nothing tastes good without an appropriate amount of salt.  -  15 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
