I really enjoyed this and the versatility to experiment with different fruit and extract combos. I pureed the milk and strawberries first, then added in the rest of the ingredients and gave the blender a quick pulse. After refrigerating for about an hour, I gave the pudding a quick stir to prevent clumping. It set up nicely. I made it in the evening for the following day's breakfast. The only slight deviation from the recipe was to use coconut/almond milk blend. Very tasty and healthy.

This is easy to make, but not as flavorful as I would have liked. I added a whole bunch of extra sliced strawberries on top and pecans, and that kicked it up a notch. Maybe I am just used to more sweetness. Neither of my kids liked it for that same reason.

Perfect! Very easy. Would not change a thing. Although, an alternative preparation I have done is to use 1 c almond milk, and 1 c vanilla Greek yogurt. Great either way. My daughter loves this, too. She will even choose this over ice cream!! Also, after preparing this, I like to divide it into pint size jars to sit overnight. Perfect for grabbing quickly in the morning on my way out the door. May have to stir a bit when you open and eat.

Some might call this dessert, but I call it breakfast with my probiotics and any fruit handy and fresh. Excellent!

This is delicious! I even made it completely wrong (Just blended everything) and I ate half of it before I put in in the fridge.

This is an easy, delicious way to enjoy chia seeds. I let mine sit overnight, covered in the fridge and it gets even thicker this way. But it will never be the exact consistency of pudding. It has its own unique and wonderful consistency that is more in line with tapioca. I love it!!

Interesting. Easy to make. I used a one lb bag of frozen strawberries. This one is a keeper.

Have been making chia pudding for some time now and I liked the idea of adding the puréed fruit for a nice change. I didn't add the honey or vanilla because I used the sweetened vanilla almond milk I had on hand. Love to have a bit for breakfast! It's important to stir this a couple times in the first 30-45 minutes or the seeds will settle and you will have a thick base with liquid still sitting on the top. I like to make a big batch in the evening and let it sit over night, it will last a couple days.
