    It's been in the fridge for 14 hours now, and is still soupy. I had the impression is that it should be like custard. I followed the directions exactly, so can anyone tell me if it is supposed to be like soup or like custard? If soup, I would not make this again.  -  05 May 2017


    I liked this and really wasn't sure what to think at first. I followed the recipe exactly except using 1 percent milk and plain instant coffee, which worked fine. I also just mixed the honey in with the milk, but I liked that it still wasn't too sweet. After taking it from the fridge, I wasn't too happy with it at first. The chia seed texture was just so odd. The seeds were a mix of a gel and crunchy texture which did not work for me. However, I decided to stick the pudding in the vitamix to whip it up. I normally use chia seeds in smoothies with no problem. It made the pudding nice and smooth at about 30 seconds on high. Chia seeds are so good for the stomach and I have not had any indigestion, today, which I normally do. I will definitely make this again, but double it to get more than 2 servings, and definitely blend it all together again when it is done chilling in the fridge. ty  -  01 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is so delicious! I've made it with white sugar, sugar substitutes, and coconut sugar - and also with almond and soy milk. All work wonderfully!  -  23 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
