Fall has officially arrived in southern Colorado.

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and I’m starting to get cravings for my favorite fall flavors. I can’t wait to start eating my body weight in squash, soups, chili, and pumpkin pie.

This weekend I made a quick and easy spin on one of my favorite snacks – chia pudding. I decided to make it seasonally flavored but didn’t feel like going to the store – this meant no pumpkin pie filling from a can! Instead I used carrot and apple to create a delicious pumpkin-pie flavored pudding.

Thanks to the pumpkin pie seasoning blend, this dish really did taste like pumpkin pie pudding. You can always use 1/4 cup pumpkin puree mixed with almond milk or even blend 1/2 of a baked, chilled sweet potato…make it easy with whatever you have on hand!
