Fall is my favorite season because I can light up a candle, wrap myself in a blanket, and enjoy comforting foods. This season, I’m embracing everything pumpkin-related. From delicious pumpkin pie, keto pumpkin bread, low carb pumpkin muffins to delicious savory pumpkin soup.

Of course, I don’t forget to sprinkle my homemade pumpkin pie spice on my daily bulletproof coffee or golden milk. That’s how much I adore fall.

Since I love chia pudding, you can find various variations on the blog that I also enjoy throughout the year: chocolate chia pudding and raspberry chia pudding.

Ingredients in Pumpkin Chia Pudding

This nutritious fall chia pudding with pumpkin needs a few basic ingredients. It’s super thick because chia seeds can absorb up to 10 times their weight in liquid, and the canned coconut milk makes it incredibly creamy.

Chia seeds are packed with nutrients and many health benefits. When combined with liquids, chia seeds transform into a thick, pudding-like texture. Here are all the ingredients you’ll need for this vegan pumpkin chia pudding:

  • Chia Seeds – The essential ingredient for chia pudding, these tiny seeds absorb the liquid and expand, creating a gel-like consistency. Chia seeds are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein.
  • Pumpkin puree – While you can use store-bought pumpkin puree, avoid using pumpkin pie filling as it’s loaded with sugar. Alternatively, you can make homemade pumpkin puree using the recipe on my blog. It’s also a great source of vitamins and dietary fiber.
  • Coconut milk – Make sure to use full-fat coconut milk for that incredible creaminess that makes this pumpkin chia pudding rich and luscious.
  • Almond milk – Almond milk helps to thin out the mixture and create the desired pudding texture.
  • Sweetener – Use a natural low-carb sweetener such as Erythritol or Monk Fruit.
  • Pumpkin pie spice – A blend of warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, pumpkin pie spice infuses the pudding with classic fall flavors.
  • Vanilla extract – Adds a unique sweetness and delicious vanilla flavor, which complements the spices and pumpkin well.

How to Serve

I love that chia pudding is perfect for meal prep and is highly customizable. You can whip it up the night before and have it ready for breakfast the next morning.

  • Classic Parfait: Layer the chia pudding with keto granola, crushed nuts, or seeds.
  • Top with Whipped Cream: A dollop of whipped cream or coconut whipped cream for a dairy-free version can elevate the pudding’s texture and taste.
  • Fresh fruits: Fresh berries, slices of banana, or even pomegranate seeds can provide a fresh burst of flavor.
  • Drizzled with Sweetness: Enhance its sweetness with a drizzle of maple syrup, honey, or a keto-friendly syrup.
  • Nutty Touch: Add a handful of toasted pecans, walnuts, or almonds for added crunch and flavor.
  • Spice It Up: A sprinkle of extra pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon can heighten the fall flavors.
  • Coconut Flakes: Sprinkle some toasted coconut flakes on top.
  • Chocolate Delight: If you’re a chocolate lover, add a few chocolate chips or a drizzle of melted dark chocolate.
  • Serve at Room Temperature: While chia pudding is traditionally served cold, letting it sit at room temperature for a few minutes can enhance its flavors.
  • Dollop of Yogurt: A spoonful of Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt can add creaminess and a tangy contrast.
