16 Sep Pumpkin Chia Pudding Parfaits
Love pumpkin pie (or just pumpkin pie spice!) but hate the sugar? Check out this yummy satisfying healthy alternative. So good for you you could have it every morning guilt free!
Prep Time: 10 minutes Yield: 3 cups Serving Size: 6
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
4 tablespoons organic maple syrup (or 4 pitted Medjool dates)
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon organic pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon organic Ceylon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon organic turmeric (optional)
1/2 cup organic chia seeds
for topping: granola or nuts and seeds, coconut yogurt, diced apples or pears
- Combine all of the ingredients except for the chia seeds in a blender and blend for 10 seconds, until smooth.
- Add the chia seeds to the blender and use a spoon to stir together. If you prefer the smooth textured option, blend on high for 15 seconds, so that the chia seeds dissolve. Taste test to see if you prefer it a little sweeter and add maple syrup or more spices, as needed.
- Transfer the pudding to a container (preferably glass) and seal it shut. Place in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, spoon some out into a small bowl and layer with yogurt, granola, and fruit.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
