Protein Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Protein Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Protein Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding 

  • 3/4 cup milk (your choice; I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon protein powder (I use sun warrior’s warrior blend)
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/8 teaspoon each of nutmeg, cloves, and ginger)
  • 10 drops liquid stevia (or 1 T sweetener of your choosing)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Option 1 – (my favorite)

  • Add all the ingredients into the blender and puree until smooth. (I opted to leave the chia seeds in for the blending portion since I prefer the texture of blended chia seeds, but if you like a more tapioca like pudding see option 2.)
  • Pour into a bowl or cup and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Allow to chill in the fridge for a few hours (I prefer overnight) so the pudding gets nice and creamy.

Option 2 -

  • Blend all the ingredients except for the chia seeds into the blender until everything is well combined and thick in texture.
  • Pour the mixture into a bowl or cup and add in the chia seeds, stirring everything together. Make sure everything is well combined.
  • Cover your bowl or cup with plastic wrap and allow the chia seeds to absorb the mixture for at least a few hours (I prefer overnight) to set.

Protein Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Once your pudding is ready, eat straight from the bowl and top with your favorite toppings.

It’s not the cutest looking dish in the world, but it’s tasty, and I’d say that’s the most important thing.

What are your favorite simple meals?

What’s your favorite spice? I’m definitely a cinnamon fan.

  1. yum! i’m all about chia puddings!! i’d also say cinnamon is my favorite and most used spice!

  2. That looks so good! I like to keep it extremely simple for breakfast since my brain doesn’t really work until after I eat, so I normally just have cereal or a granola bar. I will have to try this for breakfast on a weekend!

  3. looks great! we have not had a chia pudding in some time and we were just discussing that the other day. so perfect timing ;)

  4. This looks like a chia pudding that I could actually try! I’m a little too intimidated of the tapioca-like chia puddings – the texture looks unsettling to me. This, however, looks fabulous. Favourite spices are cinnamon and cumin!

  5. Hmmm…..love all kinds of pudding. And I’m with you – the easier the better!!
    My favorite spice is definitely cinnamon and gingerbread spice as well!

  6. I’ve been putting pumpkin in everything – had it just a second ago in my yogurt for breakfast! I always use cinnamon. My favorite non-pie spice is smoked paprika.

  7. Looking forward to trying this recipe and it’s very easy to make. My favorite spices is smoked paprika and Penzey’s BBQ 3000.

  10. I love the idea of blending the chia seed pudding! I have only ever prepared it like option #2. I would say my favorite simple meal is either a hearty green smoothie or a sweet potato topped with tahini and a fried egg.

  11. I’m definitely with you on simple meals in the morning and in general. I think that’s one of the reasons why I prefer oatmeal over something like pancakes — just let it cook on the stove and not worry about having to flip it or watch it. As for other simple meals, I’ve really been loving mug cakes lately… especially because they’re so customizable depending on what it is I happen to be craving at the time.

    PS – I love that you’re still eating pumpkin ;)

  12. I’ve been having smoothies for breakfast but I’m kind of sick of them, so I’ve been looking for an easy/nutritious breakfast to try out. This definitely fits the bill! Can’t wait to give this a try!

  13. I love this and it’s so easy!

  14. I made something pretty flipping simple today, involving PUMPKIN! I mixed pumpkin with vegan protein, baked it and BOOM – Pumpkin Protein Muffins!!! Super tasty!! Sprinkled Powdered Stevia on top! I could make them every day – Oh wait, I have already had them 2 days in a row!

  15. I’m having this for breakfast tomorrow! Favorite spice? Def cinnamon!

  16. YOUR NEW HAIR OMG.
    Beautiful.
