I will admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of chia pudding when I first tried it. The consistency took a little getting used to, but after playing around with some flavor combinations, I have fallen in love with chia pudding.
Chia seeds become gelatinous when soaked in water, just like flax seeds. Both seeds make a wonderful binder, so they are often used in place of eggs. I have used both types of seeds in smoothies and crackers.
I prefer a savory breakfast, so I did not make this Almond Chia Pudding very sweet. For me, I used just enough dates to keep it still on the savory side, but you may want to add more. If you are eating this as a dessert, you will most likely want to add more dates.

This is the Nutribullet that I have. It's perfect for making this chia pudding with a traditional creamy texture.
