vegan chia puddingI love chia pudding. It’s easy to put together and makes a satisfying breakfast when served with fresh fruit and toasted nuts. Or, an indulgent dessert when topped with a spoonful of coconut milk and a sprinkling of dark chocolate.

pumpkin chia pudding

I usually make this basic vanilla chia pudding recipe, but decided to mix things up a bit since I had some leftover pumpkin puree after baking these muffins. Change is good. I’m obsessed with these lightly sweet, vegan pumpkin chia pudding cups. They’re so good that I’m bringing them to a virtual pumpkin party! Today, food bloggers all across the web are sharing their favorite pumpkin recipes. Get links to all of the pumpkin recipes by visiting the hosts of the party, Sara and Aimee.

Vegan Pumpkin Chia Pudding Recipe
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree (homemade or canned)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (homemade or purchased, refrigerated almond milk)
1/2 cup canned, full-fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/4 cup chia seeds
Topping:
Additional coconut milk
Shaved dark chocolate

In a medium bowl whisk together pumpkin, almond milk, 1/2 cup coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. Add chia seeds; whisk to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally to distribute chia seeds. Once the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid and the mixture has thickened, spoon the chia pudding into 4 small glasses. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to thicken the pudding. (The pudding can be stored in the fridge up to 2 days.)

Top with a few spoonfuls of additional coconut milk and some dark chocolate shavings before serving.

Makes 4 servings

Best Recipes of 2015 and an Update

Happy New Year! I hope 2015 was a happy and healthy year for you, and that 2016 will be even better.

I had a challenging, but ultimately good 2015. I started the year on a low note as I was laid off from my job of almost 10 years (the week before Christmas, thank you very much). Pile on a dark and cold Minnesota winter and I was feeling pretty bleak. Then things started turning around for me when I decided to start my own food consulting business. I’ve had the opportunity to work on some great editorial projects, drawing on my experience as a recipe developer, nutritionist and editor. I greatly enjoy being my own boss and creating content for books, magazines and food brands.

I have also been working to build my newest food blog, Kingfield Kitchen. I’m sharing my top 15 recipes of 2015 from Kingfield Kitchen so you can get a taste of what I’ve been making this last year.Kingfield Kitchen Top Recipes 2015
