02 Sep Vegan Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding
As summer heat is slowly replaced by autumn breezes and falling leaves, there’s just one thing on everybody’s mind: PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING. Since we’re long-time fans of chia seeds for their multiple health benefits, we thought a Pumpkin Spice edition of nature’s perfect vegan breakfast might be the best way to dive into this new season.
Vegan + Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional topping: whipped yogurt or whipped coconut cream
In a medium-sized bowl, mix all ingredients together for about 1-2 minutes, ensuring chia seeds are well incorporated. Wait 1 minute for the seeds to settle, then mix for another minute or so (this will help to break up any chia clumps that form).
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Add optional topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon before enjoying!
