If you like pumpkin pie, you’ll love this Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding made with coconut milk, pumpkin purée and autumnal spices. Enjoy with whipped cream and crushed graham crackers!
I love pumpkin pie, and while I was putting together some new chia pudding recipes to share, I thought I ought to make a pumpkin pie version since I had a can of pumpkin purée hanging around in my pantry. I’ve already been whipping up some new fall pumpkin recipes (like this Pumpkin Turmeric Latte) so a pudding recipe seemed fitting, too!
This Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding is absolutely delightful with some whipped cream on top (I’ve been loving the dairy-free coco whip by So Delicious). Crushed graham crackers on top would also make a great topping.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding
To make this pudding you’ll need:
A lot of chia pudding recipes involve mixing together the ingredients in a bowl, covering, and allowing to thicken on its own (since chia seeds are like little sponges that gelatinize when exposed to water). But I like to take it up a notch and blend it for an ultra creamy pudding.
Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding
A creamy pumpkin pie pudding made with chia seeds, coconut milk and spices.
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk (400ml)
- 1 can pumpkin purée, unsweetened (400ml)
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 tbsp maple syrup (or to desired sweetness)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- pinch sea salt
- whipped cream
- crushed graham crackers
- sprinkle of cinnamon
Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high for 30-60 seconds.
Mixture will thicken rapidly as chia seeds expand. If mixture is too thick to blend, add an extra 1/4 cup water.
Transfer to container or jar and let chill in refrigerator for about an hour.
Top with whipped cream (and crushed graham crackers if you're feeling fancy) and enjoy!
Store in fridge for up to 3 days, or freezer for a few months. If frozen, let thaw completely before enjoying.
