    Wow! So good and rich tasting. I used almond milk (80 calories/cup) and added about one tablespoon of almond butter. I let all the ingredients soak together for 30 minutes, as the recipe suggested for a smoother pudding. I have a KitchenAid mixer; it left a couple of pieces of dates in the pudding, but it did not alter the taste. Will make again and again!

    Tasted amazing! My food processor ended up leaving some chunks of dates though.

    Easy to make and added orange zest to ramp the flavour.

    This was really good and just too easy to make. Nice and rich flavour without being too sweet. I will definitely make it again

    Very Easy and Highly recommend to add some berries afterwards. I used 1cup of cows milk instead, the nutribullet did a fantastic job. Doesn’t need blending for long if using the specified amount of milk.

    I didn't have dates so I used maple syrup, and added more cocoa powder. The texture was a bit weird, I'll try letting the chia soften in the mixture before processing it next time.

    Very nice! not smooth at all, but I have no problem with that! I will try next time the versions suggested in the comments- with some peanut butter and with coconut milk!

    good recipe! I added some dates as topping to hide the chia taste a bit more.

    Great, I just changed it a bit today. I’ve put honey instead of dates. But next time will be with it.

    It turned out really well. Ive consistency turned out perfectly and if you pair this with some berries it’s out of this world.

    Very tasty but even in grinder blender did not do a great job on texture (of dates) even after soaked and chopped finely)

    Something was off about the taste and texture. I used a Vitamix to blend all the ingredients, but I didn't find it creamy enough. I used more dates and added a tsp of honey because it wasn't sweet enough. I prefer a similar pudding recipe that uses avocado to achieve its creaminess. I will stick to that recipe.
