This pumpkin chia pudding is the perfect combination of festive treat and nutritious on-the-go snack. It’s packed with plenty of pumpkin spice and plenty of protein and fiber. When it comes to health and flavor, the June Table will never make you choose!

Ingredients for Pumpkin Chia Pudding

Oat Milk: My favorite non-dairy milk (and honestly, I think I like it better than regular milk…)! It’s creamy and delicious and just perfect for rounding out the flavors of this chia pudding.

Greek or Plant-Based Yogurt: For extra creaminess and protein. I prefer full-fat Greek yogurt. I also like a vanilla yogurt here for extra vanilla flavor.

Canned Pumpkin Purée: For those authentic pumpkin vibes. Make sure it’s not the canned pumpkin pie mix!

Maple Syrup: For a dash of sweetness. Honey should work too.

Vanilla Extract: For subtle vanilla flavor and muting any bitterness in the other ingredients.

Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice: For those authentic fall flavors, y’all.

Chia Seeds: But of course! There is no chia pudding without chia seeds. They’re gonna expand and absorb the liquid to create a delightful pudding-like texture.

Topping Ideas

  • More Yogurt: Great for upping the protein!
  • Whipped Cream or Coconut Cream: To make this chia pudding feel extra luxurious and decadent.
  • Nuts & Seeds: Pecans, walnuts, or pumpkin seeds create a nice crunchy texture.
  • Nut Butter: I rarely say no to a big ol’ spoonful of almond butter.
  • Granola: Lends extra crunch, sweetness, and healthy carbohydrates.
