Ingredients

Serve With:

  • Homemade Granola
  • Seasonal fruit such as pears, apples and/or figs
  • Coca Nibs
  • Pecans and/or Hazelnuts

Instructions

  • In a large lidded jar or bowl, pour in the nut milk and scoop in the pumpkin puree. Sprinkle in the maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and the optional vanilla extract. Whisk to incorporate the ingredients. Stir in the chia seeds (if using a lidded jar, simply add the chia seeds and shake the jar vigorously to mix). Taste to adjust spices and/or maple syrup to taste. If adding fruit like figs, you may not need more maple. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake jar again so the chia seeds don't stick together. Allow to set at least 30 minutes or over night before serving. 
  • If storing overnight, spoon the chia pudding into single serving jars put a lid on it and rest the jars in the fridge. When ready to serve, layer in the granola for a parfait, and top with fresh seasonal fruit such as figs, pears and/or apples, cocoa nibs, chopped pecans and/or hazelnuts. Enjoy chilled! 
  • Store in the refrigerator in a lidded container for up to three days (without any of the toppings). 

Notes

*If making the cashew milk recipe, be sure to thin with water by about 1/4 C when using it in this recipe. 
**On Spices: Tastes vary in the spice department. I love spicy sweet things (hello cloves and ginger), but Rob, not so much. If you're not a fan of cloves or ginger, leave them out or add just a pinch. We're going for pumpkin pie flavors here... ! Play with the flavors and find the balance you prefer! 
***Depending on how thick you prefer chia pudding, you can adjust the amount of chia seeds. If thinner is desired, hold out a tablespoon or two of chia seeds and then adjust to taste.  Look for chia seeds in the bulk bins. The price is better than packaged chia seeds, there's no waste and you can refill your glass jars!
