About the Recipe
Indulge in the cozy, spiced richness of autumn with my Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding, where the creamy chia seed base meets a velvety pumpkin spice yogurt topping, creating a harmonious blend of smooth and satisfying textures infused with the warm embrace of cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice.
Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding:
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred milk)
1/4 cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (adjust to taste)
1 1/2 teaspoons of the homemade pumpkin spice blend
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Topping:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of the homemade pumpkin spice blend
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chopped pecans or cashews
Extra cinnamon for dusting
Start by preparing the homemade pumpkin spice blend. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, ground clove, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix well to create your custom pumpkin spice blend.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, 1 1/2 teaspoons of your homemade pumpkin spice blend, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes, then stir it again to ensure the chia seeds are evenly distributed.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate it for at least 3 hours, or overnight. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and thicken the pudding.
In a separate bowl, prepare the pumpkin spice yogurt topping. Combine the plain Greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, honey (or maple syrup), 1 teaspoon of your homemade pumpkin spice blend, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined.
Once the chia pudding has set, give it a good stir. If it's too thick, you can add a little more of your preferred milk to achieve your desired consistency.
To serve, divide the pumpkin spice chia pudding into serving glasses or bowls. Top each portion with a generous dollop of the pumpkin spice yogurt topping.
Add your favorite toppings to enhance the flavor and texture of your chia pudding, such as chopped pecans or cashews, a sprinkle of cinnamon, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds.
