Equipment

  • 2 small mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Mason Jar
  • Hand blender

Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding

  • ¾ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds ground
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pink Himalayan salt

Optional: Coconut Whip Cream

  • 1 14 fl oz can Full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding

  • In a small bowl mix together the almond milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  • Add in the chia seeds, ground flax seeds, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and salt. Mix very well to prevent the chia seeds from clumping.
  • You can cover the bowl or transfer into a mason jar with a lid. Let sit for 4-5 hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • Best served chilled. Will keep for 5 days in the fridge.

Optional: Coconut Whip Cream

  • For best results cool the can of unopened full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. This step isn't necessary but helps to keep the whip cream more whipped-like.
  • When you remove the can from the fridge be careful not to tip or shake the can. Carefully scoop out the top solid, thick part of the coconut milk into a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer beat for 30 seconds until it's creamy.
  • Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract, beat for 2 minutes. Will keep in the fridge for over a week but it will solidify.
