Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Parfait

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 14, 2011

I know, I know quit it with the pumpkin recipes already! It’s inadvertently turned into Pumpkin Week. I promise to lay off pumpkin after this.

Wait, no I don’t. Who do you think I am here? I can’t make any promises when it comes to pumpkin. I can only promise that I fell in love with this pumpkin pudding and I think you will too. I’ve made it 3 times already and it’s strangely addictive.

I don’t know why, but I haven’t made chia pudding since 2009 or early 2010. I guess I didn’t like it as much as I thought. I think the problem with my original attempt was that I made it too slimy. It was too heavy on the chia seeds (slim factor) and too light on filler ingredients.

IMG_3388

Last week while I was busy screwing up perfectly good pumpkin pies with avocado, I decided that I really want to eat an entire bowl of pumpkin pie filling. You know, normal thoughts. If you’ve made the Pumpkin Pie Brownie you probably know how delicious the pumpkin filling is! I could live off that stuff. Or I wish I could live of that stuff.

20101002IMG_3991

My goal was to make a pumpkin-based pudding made with chia seeds. I envisioned it very similar to my Vegan Overnight Oats, only without the oats, but with the addition of a vanilla protein powder for some staying power. I also wanted it to taste like pumpkin pie filling, of course.

I Googled ‘Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding’ to see what was already out there. I found recipes by Living Lindsay, Spinach and Yoga, The Non Dairy Queen, Confessions of a Young Woman, Choosing Raw, Edible Perspective, The Challenged Health Nut, and Pure 2 Raw, to name just a handful! Apparently, I’m not the only one who wants to eat a bowl full of pumpkin pie.

After checking out a few recipes I decided to just throw stuff in a bowl and taste test as I went. This recipe is very similar to my Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats. It’s not too heavy on the chia seeds and it’s thinner and smoother in consistency than many pudding recipes. I didn’t find this pudding too slimy unlike my previous attempts.

This pudding takes just 5 minutes to throw together. Exactly why I’ve made it 3 times already!

I recommend chilling your can of pumpkin if you can. This just means that your pudding will chill faster after making it. No big deal if you don’t though.

A peek at the ingredients I used:

After mixing:

The pudding thickens slightly in the fridge, but the consistency is still pretty thin compared to “normal” puddings. If you want it thicker you can try using less Almond Milk. Personally, I like more volume.

I’m working on a gluten-free version of my Wedded Bliss Soft Ginger Cookies and made parfaits for Eric and I for dessert. It was such a tasty, light dessert for the Fall season! I love a dessert that doesn’t weigh me down.

You can also try adding raisins or walnuts, or whatever tickles your fancy.

IMG_3384

What I like about this recipe is how versatile it is. So far, I’ve had it for breakfast, a snack, and now dessert.

When I start eating this for dinner, I think an intervention might be necessary.

~~

I’m off to finally get my ultrasound results this morning! My doctor was away for a couple weeks, so I haven’t been able to find out the results yet. My food sensitivity testing, which was scheduled early this week, was also rescheduled to next Wednesday. So I’ve been playing the waiting game which is why you haven’t had any updates from me yet.

Anyways, fingers crossed for good results! If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, see this post.

Happy Friday!

Never enough pumpkin! I love chia pudding and can’t wait to make this. I made peach chia pudding all summer and fell in love with it’s cobbler-like taste when heated. I wonder how pumpkin would be warmed?

I havent made chia pudding in ages either. But I sure have been rockin’ the pumpkin eats. I think I may turn orange soon :)

Jacqueline October 14, 2011 at 9:06 am

I just made this. I had made another version a few weeks ago but it was from a different recipe and called for a bunch of stuff that I was skeptical about and clearly right because it tasted awful and was slimy. This is definitely a much better version!
Goodluck on your tests! I have celiacs along with lactose intolerance and IBS AND allergies to other things, which cause terrible hospital trips. So, I hope that everything for you turns out okay because its not an easy thing to deal with at all. Before they found out I had celiacs I couldn’t leave my bed most days and the pain was pretty intense. I think the blog Gluten Free Girl pretty much sums it up, if you have celiacs you definitely know you have a serious problem even before the test. Brown rice to the rescue haha

Thank you for enabling my pumpkin addiction, and helping me to ensure I’ll be sporting a lovely orange glow =)

Mmm pumpkin chia pudding. I’ve been having this same sort of thing for a couple of weeks now but I’ve been adding about 1 tbsp melted coconut butter on top then letting it harden in the fridge. SO good!
Good luck with your results, Angela. Looking forward to seeing what the doctor has to say. All good news, I’m sure :)

Reply

Ashley October 14, 2011 at 10:10 am

Thinking about you today!! Hope you get some answers! The parfaits look fantastic. If you’re wanting the pudding to be thicker, you can add more chia seeds, but blend it up…totally gets rid of the slime factor!! ;) Looks completely amazing as is though! Paired with crunchy spiced cookies, I can’t even imagine. I have plans to make something similar, but am going to try a version of GF lady fingers to layer with the pumpkin. Now all I can think about is pumpkin….mmm

There is NO reason to apologize for the pumpkin overload. With the weather cooling and leaves changing, I am all for pumpkin _everything_ right now. And thanks to your post, that will most definitely include pumpkin chia pudding. A desire to make chia pudding has been percolating in my head for the last week or so, so this must be kismet.

Thank you!

This looks delicious:) I actually made mini pumpkin pies using a chia “egg”, and they turned out pretty good. Not quite a “dense” as I would have liked, but enough that it still held it’s form. I remember doing a pie last year and using flax “egg” and also some cornstarch, and it was good too.

I will have to keep that in mind, thanks for letting me know a chia egg worked for you!

Reply

Jaime October 22, 2011 at 4:11 pm

No prob:) Just curious as to whether you think that chia works better in some recipes, and flax in others? I find that chia gets much more “congealed”, which is good.

Wow! This is what I need tonight! Luckily I just roasted a huge pumpkin and I have chia seeds! This looks amazingly delicious!

This just looks devine! I love that it only takes 5 minutes to put together. Good thing I stocked up on pumpkin at Trader Joe’s the other day. :) Let me know if you end up eating it for dinner….. I’ll be right behind you. ha!

Ummm made this last night and ate it this morning with ginger snaps. Let me say amazing!

I made this pudding as per your recipe – it was great by itself for dessert, and leftovers were a perfect addition to a morning orange monster!
Thanks for the idea!

I have pumpkin week on my blog, too! The picture of your pudding is so amazing, I decided to make it before I even read the recipe!

I absolutely DON’T like pumpkin.

That was yesterday.
Before I tried the recipe.
With a few tweaks.

I had been “TRYING” to go vegetarian this past week, and was about to give up, when I saw this SUPAH DUPAH HUNK of a thing! Now, I might just directly jump up to vegan :)
You r like Superwoman/Batgirl …or Supervegan ….Batvegan….. VeganBat??? ;)

Good luck with the doc.

Can you possibly post the Pumpkin brownie recipe, the link goes to your holiday dinner party And Ivan only see the cupcake recipe on the recipient’s. Sorry, but unless I am losing it, I can’T seem to find it. Thanks!!

Oh good pumpkin heaven! It started yesterday when I made your pumpkin brownie pie for the first time. Where do I begin???? I think, no let me rephrase that, definitely my go-to pumpkin baked-good recipe!!! My husband and I polished the entire pie off already. Is that sick or just simply right? I think it’s all good, haha! Then I went on to make the roasted tomato pesto. Oh my word! You are simply the best Angela! Thank you! However, how do you not eat everything you make all at once? I could eat the pumpkin layer baked all on it’s own! hmmm, recipe idea perhaps for just a pumpkin filling cake?!?

I find your blog inspiring. I also found some great people through your directory.

This looks divine!

I had this pudding for breakfast today, what an amazing way to start my day. Then, on my way to work I was drawn to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice soy latte. You’ve created a pumpkin addict. Your next blog should be a 12 step program to cure our pumpkin addictions.

I want to make this and look forward to a pie version (though I’m sure if I googled I’d find plenty of them).

Erica @ Cupcakes & Coffee Breaks October 17, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I am going home to make this tonight, for sure! I am an outright pumpkin addict, and am so obsessed with these recipes. I made your pumpkin gingerbread the other day and it was unbelievable, the texture was perfect! I hope you keep the pumpkin recipes coming so I can continue to pay my respects to the gods of autumn vegetables :)

Yum !!! Obsessed with pumpkin recently…I made this last night with some ginger cookies! Then put it in my oatmeal this morning…then had some mixed into my ice cream. Tomorrow I will try it in my yogurt. Yum! Thanks for the idea

I’m dying to try your pumpkin brownie…but cannot get coconut oil where I am. What would work as a substitute??

Bethany October 19, 2011 at 9:57 am

Hey Angela! I have a question for you about refrigerated almond milk vs. non refrigerated. I just now discovered the non-refrigerated non-dairy milks, and they seem to be much cheaper for the same number of ounces. Is there a difference between the two, or does one have preservatives and one doesn’t?

Jen October 19, 2011 at 10:36 am

Hi Angela! Thank you for all of your wonderful recipe ideas! I haven’t tried this one yet, but I was wondering…instead of canned pumpkin, can I use actual filling from a pumpkin, or will that decrease the thickness?
Have a wonderful day!
Jen

Hey Jen! I’m not really sure as I have yet to try using fresh pumpkin in my recipes yet. Goodluck if you try it!

I’m sure you’ve had a million people suggesting things that may be bothering you to cause digestive problems but look into Fructose Malabsorption if you haven’t heard about it yet in your research. Apparently very few people know about it but it’s easy to test for and causes a lot of the digestion symptoms you’re describing.

Loving all of your pumpkin recipes! Made a version of your pumpkin brownie pie, and just made this pudding! So delicious, really like eating pumpkin pie filling!

I made this treat thus morning and had a bit with lunch! Wow! So creamy and delicious! I’ve even snuck an extra spoon full – just because I can! Lol!

Just made this and enjoyed it-tho I’m thinking I should have added the cookies to go with the crunch of the chias…

Can you give some suggestions for a good vanilla protein powder? I’ve tried a couple of vegan ones and the flavor was just okay, and not really vanilla-y at all.

I’ve been dying to make pumpkin chia seed pudding for weeks and just whipped up my first batch using this recipe! Thanks so much. Can’t wait to dig in :-)

Is it better to eat the pudding right away or give it time to chill?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 19, 2013 at 8:36 am

It’s best to allow it to chill in the fridge for a few hours. Enjoy!

This was a complete bust for me!!!! I could not wait to try. Follow the directions to the letter (so unlike me as a very experienced cook). I ended up with a sweet tasting, pumpkin soup. It never would set up or thicken. I would advise finding a recipe elsewhere!
