Banana Pumpkin Chia Pudding

Banana Pumpkin Chia Pudding

It’s that time of the year, which means it’s time for pumpkin-flavored pumpkin with pumpkin seeds. Or maybe just this pudding, which marries pumpkin with bananas and other warming seasonal spices. It’s thick, creamy and just sweet enough. Be sure to use bananas that are fully ripe, meaning there are some little brown spots, for the sweetest pudding.

Great for dessert or even breakfast, this pudding has great autumn flavor and comes together in minutes. (Factor in some chilling time, of course.) Calcium-rich chia seeds act as the thickening agent here and this pudding is a great way to bring more omega-3 fatty acids into your life. Let the pumpkin season begin!

Banana Pumpkin Chia Pudding

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond or other non-dairy milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 ripe bananas
1 cup pure pumpkin purée
4 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of salt

In a blender or food processor, add the milk and the chia seeds, letting the seeds soften for a few minutes as you get everything else gathered. Add everything else and let it blend or process for a minute or until everything is very smooth. This will be thick! Transfer to a large bowl or individual serving bowls and allow to cool and set in the fridge for at least two hours. Enjoy!
