Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding

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.)
