1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla soy, hemp or almond milk
2 tablespoons whole chia seeds
2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
1/2 banana, sliced (see note)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries or frozen, thawed


In a bowl, mix together non-dairy milk, chia seeds, and oats. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes. (For an on-the-run breakfast, make the night before and store in the refrigerator)

Stir in blueberries and banana. Add additional non-dairy milk if desired to adjust consistency.

Note: To maximize flavonoid absorption from berries, substitute 1/2 cup of thawed frozen cherries, mango or other fruit for the banana.

I ate this for breakfast everyday for like 2 years. I added a tablespoon ground flax too. 
My kids even loved it and had fun batching it with me. We put the oats, chia, and flax into mason jars and kept a Weems's worth ready to go. Then either the night before or the morning of we added the frozen blueberries and milk. I prefer waiting until I'm eating it to add the banana. I would start soaking around 6 am and eat it between 8-10am.

That sounds like a good idea. How much flax do you add? Seeds or ground? thanks!

I rate it a 4.5, if that's possible.  It was surprisingly good, although I did heat it in the microwave for about twenty seconds before adding the banana, to take the chill off.  I would definitely make it again.

We Love this.  I prep the dry ingredients and make up different flavors (dried apples, cinnamon, pecans in one-  dried berries in another) and then add fresh fruit after it has soaked.  Is it literally ready to eat after the 10 minute soak!

Delicious and filling!  I like to sprinkle sliced almonds on top for added nutrition and a delicious crunchy texture.   I also find that letting it sit for 30" before eating softens the chia seeds further and makes it even better.

Very good however I heated it up for 30 seconds.  Thought is was a bit too cold.
