Whether you are tired of hearing about pumpkin spice or can’t get enough, this recipe is perfect for both parties! The only reason why I know this is a fact is that my husband says so! Haha.

Usually, after photos have been taken, Michael will stick one ear out of the room to wait for those magic words: “Honey, would you like to eat this?” This time, he ate the entire jar before I could tell him what the special ingredient is in my chia pudding! For the record, he despises pumpkin pie spice everything!

See, I say this to tell you that pumpkin spice is here to stay! Not because of the spice, but because of the pumpkin that usually follows it! Pumpkin is an awesome fruit that is highly nutritious! Two of my favorite health benefits of pumpkin is that pumpkin is a powerful source of fiber and contains beta-carotene.

Have you ever wondered how orange vegetables and fruits have vibrant colors? It’s because of this powerful antioxidant called beta-carotene! Our body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A which is an essential vitamin for our bodies. We need vitamin A for healthy skin, a strong immune system, and good eye health. That is why I love pumpkin so much!

Enjoy this pumpkin pie chia pudding for breakfast, as a snack or even as a dessert. I’m sure chia pudding would be good warm but I have only tested this chilled. You can also use the leftover pumpkin puree in pumpkin pie protein smoothie or the elevated pumpkin spice latte recipe found on my Instagram.
