Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice + additional for garnish
  • 1/4 Cup Pure canned pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp + 1/2 tsp Pure maple syrup divided (or to taste)
  • 1 Cup 1% DairyPure Milk *
  • 2 Tbsp Pecans roughly chopped

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice, canned pumpkin and 1 Tbsp of the maple syrup. Pour in the milk and whisk together until well mixed. At this point, you can add more maple syrup if it's not sweet enough for you.
  • Divide the pudding between 2 glasses, and refrigerate overnight.
  • To serve: Place the pecans into a small bowl, and pour in the remaining 1/2 tsp maple syrup. Use your fingers to stir around the pecans and make sure they get evenly coated in the syrup.
  • Pour the pecans on a small plate and microwave until the syrup feels very sticky, and the pecans smell nutty, just about 1 minute. Let cool for 3-4 minutes, or until the maple syrup has hardened.
  • Divide the pecans on top of the cups, sprinkle with a pinch of pumpkin pie spice and DEVOUR.

Notes

* this doesn't work as well if you sub non-dairy milk, like almond. It will not set quite like a pudding and will require stirring once chilled overnight to thicken. I would recommend cutting the liquid to 3/4 of a cup if you use non-dairy milk and note that it won't be QUITE as thick as pudding.
