This dessert is a healthy way to finish the day! Of course, it works just as well for breakfast. Chia seeds are a natural thickener which makes this dish a nice texture. Toasted almonds or mixed nuts add crunch.
I like this recipe. It is great basic starter chia pudding. Very easy to do. I do a couple of things differently, though. I use honey instead of maple syrup in the initial mix with the chia pudding. I also do not mix additional maple syrup/honey with the strawberries before serving. I simply prefer mine less sweet. And if the berries are good, I feel they are flavorful enough on their own. Also I ONLY use greek yogurt when I make this. I just feel the density of greek yogurt holds up better with the chia seeds. And lastly, after the initial 30 minute soak, i gently mix the ingredients to redistribute. I then divide it into pint size jars to sit overnight. These are perfect size for me to easily grab in the morning and head out the door. FYI, I also like this without any additional fruit, etc. On it's own is good, too.

I have been experimenting with chia seed recipes and I really liked this one. I used almond slivers that i just sprinkled over the top. The maple syrup added just enough sweetness without it being too sweet. - 11 Sep 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
