Pumpkin Spice Chia Seed Pudding

Pumpkin Breakfast

Pumpkin spice chia pudding is the perfect breakfast or treat! I love this fall twist by adding pumpkin to it, and it’s dairy free and low in sugar!

I pulled out all the stops on flavor for this delicious pumpkin spice chia seed pudding with pumpkin spice apples and pumpkin seeds! All the best fall flavors come together for this recipe that is super simple to make and great for breakfast or a treat.

Can I tell you a secret? I never thought I liked chia pudding and have avoided it even when it started getting really popular and popping up on blogs everywhere! I realized I like my a little thicker, which is why I made it with yogurt vs. coconut milk.

Apples, and pumpkin spice, oh my! The combination sautéing for the topping of this chia seed pudding will have your whole house smelling like fall and totally put you in the mood to enjoy this delicious fall treat!

Nutrition Benefits of Pumpkin Spice Chia Seed Pudding

It’s no secret that pumpkin is the star of the show come late August and aside from the fall flavor it gives everything you add it to, it has a ton of nutritional benefits too!

Adding pumpkin puree to this chia gives it more vitamin A (all orange veggies contain beta-carotene that is turned into vitamin A in our bodies) K, E, and C plus fiber and potassium.

This recipe makes for a great breakfast or snack because it’s packed with protein and fiber from the chia seeds, pumpkin puree, apples and pumpkin seeds. It’s super important that your breakfast and snacks contain protein and fiber because these two components help you to stay fuller for longer and fiber is crucial for digestion.
