Chia seeds are packed with a laundry list of amazing health benefits, and when soaked in liquid they expand to more than four times their original size, giving them a tapioca-like consistency. Yum! Whether you’re trying chia pudding for the first time, or are already as addicted to it as I am, add a few spoonfuls of canned pumpkin to your next batch for a great seasonal variation. Throw in a few spices, and it's a perfect healthy substitute for pumpkin pie! (Well, almost.)
What You'll Need:
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup almond (or skim) milk
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon agave syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
What to Do:
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or up to overnight (or even a few days!)
- Scoop it, garnish, and enjoy!
