4 Weeks of Functional Foods Digest #1
Happy November! This short week was all about two amazing foods that are the superstar ingredients of my favorite fiberlicious pudding. This Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding is a great addition to breakfast and is an excellent healthy dessert. The fiber found in chia seeds and pumpkin feed good gut bacteria and keeps things moving along in your digestive tract. Cheers!
Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding
1.5 cups coconut milk or almond milk
¾ cup pumpkin puree (choose canned organic pumpkin for maximum ease and nutritional benefits)
2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend
¼ cup chia seeds
Whisk together milk, pumpkin, sweetener, vanilla, and spices.
Gently stir in chia seeds.
Chill in refrigerator overnight (or a minimum of 4 hours).
