Since it is pumpkin season and everyone is craving pumpkin we decided to make a pumpkin pudding for our road trip the other day. We made this same pudding a few days ago for our Disney expo eats and really enjoyed it. I guess pumpkin has been on our minds lately!
We knew we wanted something that was sweet, full of flavor, and easy to eat in a car. This is where our easy and portable pumpkin pudding came about
Pure2Raw Recipe: Pumpkin Chia Pudding (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, semi-raw)
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 packet stevia
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp cardamon
- 1/4 cup water or nut milk (we did water)
- 1/2 cup coconut nectar ( a new sweetener we wanted to try)
Optional ingredient: 1/2 cup Irish moss paste
This picture shows our Irish Moss paste. Once you soak the irish moss and rinse it, next you puree it up and it forms a thick paste.** we will do a full post soon on how to make irish moss paste. We love adding irish moss to some of our puddings and desserts to increase the nutritional value
Place all ingredients into the Vita-mix or any blender and blend till combined.
*You could also just stir everything if you do not have a blender.
After blending we poured our pumpkin pudding into a mason jar for ease of transportation!
Now that is one pretty looking pudding
This pumpkin chia pudding is full of nutrients from Omega Fatty Acids, fiber, vitamin A and potassium just to name a few. Plus the pumpkin chia pudding is gluten free, vegan, soy free, and low in sugar!
This pumpkin chia pudding was excellent in our car ride!
We have also made another version of this pudding with no coconut nectar and just put in more stevia till it was sweet enough. And you could add 1 -2 tbsp coconut oil.
I just love fall! Don’t you? Seeing all the pumpkins, squashes and cool weather just makes you smile Promise this recipe will do the same!!!
Till next time,
