Ingredients for Paleo Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding: Nut milk, pumpkin puree, liquid stevia, chia seeds, collagen powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt

Here’s What You Need

  • Nut Milk: To form the “pudding”. Adding liquid to chia seeds creates a gel-like consistency.
  • Pumpkin Puree: To add a fall-like taste. Pumpkin is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene, and fiber—all essential nutrients for proper growth, healthy eyes, and protection from diseases (2).
  • Chia Seeds: The main ingredient! Chia seeds are what hold this creamy pudding together with their ultra-absorbable powers.
  • Collagen Powder: To get an extra boost of protein. Each scoop of collagen contains 9 grams of protein. Thus, you’re getting 27 grams of protein from this single pudding.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: To add an extra layer of fall flavor. Pumpkin pie spice is a blend of the following “warm” spices: Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and [sometimes] allspice.
  • Stevia or Monk Fruit: To sweeten up your pudding. Stevia and monk fruit are both ranked a zero on the glycemic index, containing zero calories, zero carbohydrates, zero sodium, and zero fat. As a natural sweetener, they are 150 to 250 times sweeter than sugar. So, a little goes a long way.
  • Sea Salt: To enhance all of the other ingredients. The presence of salt heightens the depth and complexity of the other flavors in the recipe.

  • The liquid stevia can be swapped for liquid or powder monk fruit. Both stevia and monk fruit are extremely sweet (150 to 250 times sweeter than sugar), so be cautious as to how much you’re putting in.
  • Feel free to experiment with different toppings! Some yummy options include chopped walnuts or pecans, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, nut butter, a dollop of coconut cream, you name it.
