Whether you enjoy for breakfast or dessert, you'll love this festive treat!
The last few months of the year are always the most challenging for those of us who are trying to lose or maintain our weight. After all, it’s the season of eating and high-calorie foods abound! No matter how strong your will is, it’s practically impossible to always say no – and you shouldn’t have to! Our Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding is creamy, decadent, and skinny. With this delicious recipe, you can have your pudding and eat it too (without worrying about the scale.)
Healthier Ingredients Create a Low-Calorie Treat
It’s not as difficult as you might think to recreate healthier versions of your favorite Fall foods. All that you have to do is make a few simple swaps. Trade high-fat and high-sugar ingredients, for lower-fat and lower-sugar options. Additionally, select ingredients that are less processed and more natural to allow your body to absorb more nutrients!
That’s exactly what we’ve done with this recipe! Instead of using the traditional brown sugar and heavy cream typically found in pumpkin pie, we’ve swapped in coconut sugar and coconut milk! Both of these ingredients are less processed and lower calorie, but offer the same sweet flavor and creaminess you love.
The spices, including cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, along with the pumpkin puree, create that unmistakable flavor of delicious pumpkin pie. Of course, this isn’t a pipe recipe; i’s a pudding!
Chia seeds are one of our favorite superfoods. They’re naturally gluten-free, full of omega-3s, and contain tons of fiber. Even better, when added to a liquid, they soak it all up along with the flavors! When added to the nutty, pumpkin-flavored mixture, you end up with an incredibly flavorful, Autumn-filled treat!
An Easy Breakfast, Dessert, or Both!
This easy pudding recipe is great as a quick breakfast option when prepared the night before, or as a light dessert after a heavy meal. Each serving is just over 252 calories but packs a hefty dose of fiber and healthy fats. No matter what time of day you decide to enjoy it, you’ll get a spoonful of Autumn in every bite, along with an added punch of superfood goodness.
