Have you ever tried chia pudding? It’s a great grain-free alternative to oatmeal, and a healthy way to indulge in pudding for dessert. With some mashed pumpkin and a few spices, this Healthy Pumpkin Chia Pudding tastes just like a slice of pie!

When chia seeds are left to sit in liquid, they form a gel consistency that is just like pudding. They’re full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so you can feel good giving your kids some ch-ch-ch-chia!

This pumpkin chia pudding is great for breakfast, a healthy sweet snack, or even an after-dinner dessert. For an even smoother consistency, you can blend all the ingredients after soaking to create a silky pudding. I love topping mine with crunchy pecans for texture and a drizzle of molasses for true pumpkin pie flavor. Grab a spoon and dig in!
