Helllllllllooooo Fall! Fall is without a doubt my favourite season.  The leaves changing, the sweaters, Halloween and best of all… drumroll.. Pumpkin goodies! Mmm! I honestly can’t get enough pumpkin goodness during fall.  But a lot of pumpkin goodies are loaded with artificial flavouring and tons of added sugar.  We want to avoid these unnecessary additives!  Many of them taste like a really bad pumpkin flavoured candy. YUK! That’s why I have shared with you one of the simplest pumpkin dishes you can make. Perfect for breakfast or dessert! Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding!  And loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin C and fiber this is not only a tasty dish but a super healthy one as well :).  Check out the recipe and let me know what you think in the comment box :).

 

Serving 2

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon organic cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • dash of allspice
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (optional)

 

Mix all ingredients in a bowl or glass jar.  Freeze at least 3 to 4 hours to overnight until firm.  Sprinkle the top with a little cinnamon.  Serve and enjoy :).

Until next time,

Many blessings,
