Seasonal Chia Pudding


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.


Seasonal Chia Pudding (makes 2 servings)


  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 green apple, diced
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • A few shakes of pumpkin pie seasoning (alternatively you can use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, etc…)
  • 4 tbsp. chia seeds


  1. Throw all ingredients save chia seeds in a blender. Blend until creamy.
  2. Stir chia seeds with blended mixture. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, stirring every so often.
  3. Enjoy….chia pudding really is that simple!


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!
