Chai Pumpkin Chia Pudding

I realize that pumpkin is not a spring vegetable, but I love it any time of year. This flavorful pudding came about as I was trying to bring some of my favorite flavors together for a filling but slightly sweet breakfast smoothy.

The first attempt was a total flop; but it seeded the idea of this recipe and I’m pleased with the outcome. I love that the banana adds subtle sweetness without overpowering the pumpkin flavor and that the chai spices give a warmth and brightness to each bite. Chia seeds add a bit of protein and fiber, making this a worthwhile mid-day snack as well as dessert. We hope you enjoy it!
