PUMPKIN CHIA PUDDING: It’s Like Instant Tapioca Pudding!

“Yes, these are the same seeds you may have spread atop a ceramic sheep at some point in your life.”
.
You can find a hundred posts about the wonders of chia seeds (dare I say, it’s the kale of 2013?), so I’ll just share this quick recipe, great for a chia seed beginner!
.
This is very kid-friendly since you “cook” it by mixing stuff together. Easily altered to whatever flavors you’re enjoying at the moment: add dried fruit, play with spices, maybe live on the edge and add some dairy-free chocolate chips! Just remember the basic ratio of 1:3, 1 part chia seeds to 3 parts liquid base (almond, soy, coconut milk, etc).

PUMPKIN CHIA PUDDING
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup sweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • dash of pumpkin pie spice
  • sweetener if needed (maple syrup, agave nectar)
 Mix chia seeds in a bowl with almond milk. Stir every few minutes for about 20 minutes until it has gelled. Mix in remaining ingredients.
.
You can garnish with shredded coconut (shown below).
