Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

 

So, this post would have come to you yesterday, but… I ate the first batch before I could take pictures. Oopsies! That alone should give you an idea of just how good this chia pudding is. It has all of the traits that pumpkin pie has, but without the crust and a little softer. It’s creamy, cool, sweet, and satisfying. Honestly, I’m not sure if I should recommend this to anyone for breakfast OR dessert! How about both? ;)

 

Another plus is that this pudding is so easy to make; even the optional topping of sweet cashew cream just goes right in the blender and then into your mouth. Well, at least that’s what happens to me. Basically, you just need to try this for yourself because you have no reason not to!

    How did you prepare Pumpkin Puree?

    • Jackie @ Vegan Yack Attack!

      You can buy it canned or, what I did, was cut a pumpkin in half, scrape out the seeds, poke a few holes in the rind with a fork and bake it in a large casserole dish filled 1/4″ high with water at 375 for 45 mins. Hope that helps!

    I’ve never had chia seeds, but this looks really yummy! I have to ask though, do the seeds stay crunchy? Thanks! :)

    I finally, finally got around to trying this and loved it! I didn’t have dates in the house so I skipped those and also didn’t feel the need for the cashew cream. It was a nice addition to a post-workout breakfast this morning. I’m going to add protein powder next time and have it as a smoothie!
