What can I say, I’m one of those basic chicks that loves everything pumpkin spice, including this pumpkin spice chia pudding! I love me some chia pudding because it’s quick, it’s super easy, and it hits the sweet spot craving. I could create a cookbook of just chia pudding variations, that’s how much I LURVE it!!
Did I also mention how super easy it is to make chia pudding. I think my kids could make this and not mess it up. (okay, okay….so they’re teenagers, but you don’t understand how bad their lack of cooking skills are) I did top this pumpkin spice chia pudding off with some naked pecans but you can totally leave those off. Now, some of you that know I have a severe nut allergy might be thinking, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING, JENNIFER?!? For some strange reason, I’m allergic to all nuts, EXCEPT for pecans. I think it’s the universe’s way of allowing me to enjoy pecan pie, right?
