Ingredients for Making Low Carb Pumpkin Chia Pudding
- Chia seeds - These low-carb seeds are also a great source of fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids.
- Heavy Cream - If you’re not low carb or keto, you could use half-and-half if you prefer. For vegan, substitute canned coconut milk.
- Almond Milk - To keep your Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding keto, make sure you buy the unsweetened kind.
- Pumpkin Puree - This should be pure pumpkin, not pie filling.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - This premade spice blend includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
- Sweetener - I recommend Swerve Confectioners so the sweetener can fully dissolve into the pudding.
- Salt - You only need a pinch to enhance the flavor of your pudding.
Tips & Tricks
- Store each serving in an individual jar or dish so you can grab this chia pudding recipe one at a time when you want a quick meal or snack.
- If you only have granular low-carb sweetener, throw it in a blender and pulse to turn it into a powder.
- For a pumpkin pie chia pudding with more texture, skip the blender and simply stir your ingredients together before storing in the fridge. Make sure to shake the jars a few times as the pudding sets.
- I always like to add a dollop of homemade Keto Whipped Cream to my Keto Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding for the full pumpkin pie experience!
- Top your pudding with Keto Spiced Pecans for some extra crunch and fall flavor.
- Add a drizzle of Macadamia Nut Butter for a boost of healthy fats to energize your day.
Frequently Asked Questions
These little seeds pack quite a punch! Not only are they a good plant-based source of protein, but they’re also packed with fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. On top of that, all of their carbs come from fiber, which makes them a 0 net-carb ingredient. That’s why they’re so great for keto!
You can substitute canned coconut milk in place of the heavy cream if you prefer a dairy-free or vegan version of this recipe. If you don’t mind dairy and aren’t following a low-carb diet, you can also use half and half for your Sugar-Free Pumpkin Chia Pudding.
This will make a very thick pudding. Instead of replacing the full cup of almond milk with heavy cream, I recommend using ½ a cup of heavy cream and ½ a cup of water to help you achieve the right consistency.
For the smoothest pudding possible, make sure you give it enough time to process in your blender. You also want to make sure you’re using a high speed blender for the best results.
