    Tried this out!
    I really liked this recipe thank you for sharing. I used vanilla flavored almond milk and silk almond yogurt so I did not add additional sweetener. The only add-on I used was chia seeds since I’m not in love with raisins (considered adding craisins but haven’t yet). I ate it cold this past morning, and this morning will try eating it warm to compare.
