This Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Chia Pudding is an extension of my love of chia pudding…and of course, pumpkin!
Chia pudding, which is basically chia seeds, non-dairy milk and your favorite fruit or other ingredients is a really easy and simple recipe to make that’s perfect for a quick breakfast or snack.
I like to make mine with homemade almond milk and have made many different varieties like Vanilla Bean and Blueberry Chia Pudding, Pineapple Protein Chia Seed Pudding, Raspberry and Banana Chia Pudding and Blackberry Pomegranate and Hemp Protein Chia Pudding.
I also keep it simple by using a mason jar to mix, shake and serve it in.
This is not an overly sweet recipe, but you can always adjust the sweetener to your preference.
It’s “almost raw” (pumpkin puree), vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
