Very good with fresh blueberries, probably not as good with frozen. My 16 yr old son liked it.  One more way to get flax and nuts in a snack.

Hello, I was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes.  Is this breakfast good for someone like me who is trying to reverse this condition?  I'm concerned about eating a banana because they are so sweet.  Thank you.

I've also been diagnosed with pre-diabetes a few months ago.  I've been eating Dr. Fuhrman (yes even up to  1 banana a day) since then and lost 25 lbs so far.  I'm confident that my pre-diabetes has already reversed but  I won't know for sure until my next test.  I hope to update you with the good news in a few months.

Very good.  I use 1/3 cup almond milk instead of 1/4 cup.

I had this today for the first time and thought it was pretty bad. Not sure what I could have messed up. It just tasted like all seeds and the berries had no flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and had such high hopes for this. Also, someone should change the picture on this because it doesn't really look appealing.
