Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding brings a comforting pudding to Pumpkin Week. You'll be amazed at this healthy dish.
I made you breakfast… or possibly a snack. It all depends on how you look at it.
This pumpkin chia seed pudding is a healthy combination of Greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, and chia seeds. It’s deliciously sweet with the warmth of fall spices.
Since everyone is crazy for pumpkin these days, and it’s the third day of pumpkin week here on Food Fanatic, I figured why not.
If you’ve never had chia seed pudding, you’re missing out on a delicious treat. The chia seeds plump when combined with liquid, creating a thick custard.
When I say this pudding is easy to make, I mean it. Unlike traditional pudding, chia seed pudding requires absolutely no cooking. There’s no need to boil milk, temper eggs, or whisk until your arm is about to fall off. You just add all of the ingredients to a bowl, give it a mix, and wait for it to thicken on its own in the refrigerator. It’s that simple!
Your arm will thank you.
You can top your pudding with just about anything you like. Top until you’re heart’s content. You can add dried or fresh fruit, toasted nuts, seeds, or even granola. The possibilities are endless. For this recipe, I topped the pudding with maple pecans and pumpkin seeds—simple and slightly sweet. If you want to get fancy, you can make a chutney with seasonal apples and pears, or even Tracy's apple ginger orange marmalade.
The great thing about chia seed pudding is that it’s the perfect breakfast on the go. When I’m finished mixing up the custard, I transfer it to individual containers that I can grab the next morning. All you have to do is open the container and add your desired toppings, and off you go!
