How to make Chia Pudding with Pumpkin Puree
I’ve shared my love for chia pudding before on the blog. They are nutritious, delicious and my favorite hands-off breakfast! To make this chia pudding all you have to do is stir chia seeds, your choice of liquid (almond milk and coconut milk are my favorites), a sweeter, vanilla extract, cinnamon and pumpkin puree together, cover your mixture and let it sit for 2-4 hours or overnight.
While the mixture sits the chia seeds will expand and begin to absorb moisture. If you want to help your pudding form quicker you can stir it very well every 40 minutes to an hour. When it has reached your desired thickness it is ready to eat! I topped mine with a sprinkle of walnuts and a dollop of non-dairy whipped cream.
Can I meal prep chia pudding?
You can absolutely meal prep chia pudding! If you want 4 servings, just double this recipe and you have breakfast ready for almost the entire week! Your chia seeds will continue to absorb moisture as they sit so on days 3 and 4 if your pudding is thicker than you would like, just stir in a splash of milk to thin it back out.
