Healthy Dessert Idea – Chia Pumpkin Pudding
Find the recipe at superhealthykids.com
Chia seed pumpkin pudding combines two powerhouse foods – pumpkin and chia – and turns them into a delicious seasonal treat. It’s perfect for busy families because there’s no cooking required. Just combine chia seeds, pureed pumpkin and a few other simple ingredients and let it set. The secret? Chia absorbs up to 12 times its weight in liquid. It’s a gluten-free binder loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins and calcium. It yields a wonderful rice pudding texture. The pumpkin provides vitamin A, fiber and the flavor of fall. Both ingredients are available at your local grocery store or online.
