    Hello everyone
    Today I had my first chia seed pudding
    It tasted like sago which I remember from my schooldays. Not unpleasant but pretty tasteless.
    Now does anyone have any idea about flavourings. I could quite happily eat this every day for breakfast if it wasnt so bland.
    My weight continues to drop slowly but my downfall is fruit lol. But I do feel 100% better
    Thank you Janet.

    Add cream. And mixed forest fruits. Or cocoa powder and some artificial sweetner.

    I use milkshake flavouring to give it taste. You can get 'sugar free' milkshake syrups.

    I use cinnamon just because I've always liked the taste of cinnamon rather than any possible good effects on blood sugars! (But, I do mix the chia seeds with Alpro Plain Yogurt or the Asda Free From Plain Yogurt with some berries and cream as well.)

    I've been using cinnamon and Greek yoghurt - then when I eat it I sprinkle nuts on top. Or if I make it with coconut milk, I put cocoa powder in it.
