Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Ingredients
- Chia Seeds - These little powerhouses are a great source of fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids.
- Almond Milk - Great for vegan, keto, gluten-free, and paleo diets.
- Pumpkin Puree - Make sure you’re using pure pumpkin, not pie filling.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - Usually a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
- Sweetener - You can use regular sugar, coconut palm sugar, low-carb sweetener, or any other sweetener that works best for you. For Paleo Pumpkin Chia Pudding, you could also use raw honey or maple syrup.
- Salt - A little goes a long way for enhancing the flavor of your pudding.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can use any kind of milk you prefer. Dairy, nut, or oat will all work.
If you’re wondering how to make this recipe vegan, just make sure you use a plant-based milk. The rest of the ingredients are completely vegan-friendly!
For a Keto Pumpkin Chia Pudding, I recommend sticking with almond milk or using coconut milk. Dairy or oat milk will have higher carbs and added sugars that aren’t ideal for a keto diet.
There’s really no wrong way to eat chia seeds! You can enjoy them raw by sprinkling them over salads or soups to add texture or soak them until soft.
If you prefer to soak your seeds, I think the best option is to let them sit overnight so they absorb the most liquid. This easy Pumpkin Chia Pudding Recipe is a great example!
You bet! The key is how long you process your chia pudding in the blender. For the smoothest pudding possible, make sure you’re using a high speed blender.
On the other hand, if you prefer some texture in your pudding, you could skip the blender and just stir your ingredients until completely combined. If you try this method, make sure to shake up the Pumpkin Chia Pudding a couple times as it sits in the refrigerator.
