Chia seeds are one of our favorite superfoods. They’re naturally gluten-free, full of omega-3s, and contain tons of fiber. And, when added to liquid, they soak it all up along with the flavors. Our Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding recipe is creamy, cold, and skinny (thanks to coconut sugar and coconut milk). Best of all, it tastes just like you’re biting into a Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.
This pudding works great as a quick breakfast option when prepared the night before, or as a light dessert after a heavy meal. Either way, you get a spoonful of fall in every bite, along with an added punch of superfood goodness.
