This easy pumpkin pie chia pudding is paleo, vegan, and keto/low carb friendly! Made with creamy coconut milk, real pumpkin, and just the right amount of pumpkin pie spice for a healthy and easy pumpkin inspired autumn breakfast!
This one’s for all my people out there who are on that pumpkin pie train but also love a super healthy and easy breakfast. Something that fills you up and gives you the energy you need to tackle the first 4 hours of your day, while also being insanely delicious.
The type of breakfast that you go to bed looking forward to 🙌🏼
And all it takes is 15 minutes of prep – 10 of which are completely hands off, so really more like 5. YES YES YES.
It’s oh-so-yummy, perfectly sweet, creamy, indulgent, and completely wholesome all at the same time. Which makes it as acceptable for breakfast as it is for a snack or dessert <– been there and will 100% do it again.
When you’re on your tenth watermelon of the summer, you start to get reaaaally creative with different ways to use it! You’ll see a couple of watermelon recipes coming up on the blog for that very reason. The first of which, is this creamy watermelon chia seed pudding!
Creamy watermelon chia seed pudding? Sounds a little… strange, right? It sounded pretty strange to me at first, too. So strange that even though the recipe came out perfectly on my first round of testing, I had to make it two more times just to be sure that I wasn’t making up the fact that it was DELICIOUS.
I actually kind of had to convince myself that this was a good idea. And now, I do believe it’s my job to convince YOU that’s it a good idea, too 🙂
The base for the chia seed pudding starts by blending together fresh cut pieces of juicy watermelon, greek yogurt (Stay with me here. You can also sub in coconut yogurt for a dairy free option), lemon juice, and a little maple syrup to gently sweeten things up. The chia seeds are whisked in, and once their plumped up, the pudding is layered into little cups with fresh berries, and more juicy watermelon.
