"Wake up in the morning and breakfast is served, the house smells like heaven. This is my new comfort food. Play with different types of seasonal fruits (peaches, apples, raisins, cranberries, etc.). Sprinkle chopped nuts or granola on the top to give it a little crunch."

LOTS of potential with this one. I'll do it again with other berries, other added ingredients, nuts, etc. Needed a bit more sweet for my taste.

Everyone complains of lack of flavor. The one essential missing ingredient....salt! And salt is NOT something I like. Nothing tastes good without an appropriate amount of salt.

I made substituions of sweetened vanilla coconut milk instead of soy, added vanilla, and used mixed berries (black, blue, rasp, and straw). It was incredibly lacking in taste and sweetness. I added stevia to my bowl and that helped. I think the ratio of quinoa and chia to flavorings is off. I'd use either a far less amount of the seeds or a much much greater amount of berries, honey, and whatever to give this a little more punch. As for my house smelling like heaven, well, I couldn't smell anything until I got near the crockpot and it smelled very earthy - not like warm vanilla and berrie porridge. Again, a ratio thing, probably. has potential, but certainly not as as posted here.
