It's almost fall y'all! This happens to be one of our favorites times of the year. Not only do we love the leaves changing and that we're finally able to bust out the scarves and boots, but fall means all pumpkin cinnamon everything.
While we haven't busted out our pumpkin spice just yet, our friends over at Easy Healthy Kids created this amazing pumpkin chia pudding that's to die for. It's easy to whip up, healthy, and your little ones will love it. Win-win-win! Check out the recipe below and if you're ever in the need for easy healthy recipes for your little one, check them out on instagram!

Now that we’re in the month of September and fall is only a few weeks away, we’re excited for all the great produce that is available during this time like pumpkins, squashes, apples, and pomegranates (just to name a few).
We’re starting it off with pumpkin purée as an ingredient, along with some warm spices, in this Pumpkin Chia Pudding recipe featuring @grabease utensils.
Grabease makes utensils that can help babies and toddlers learn to self-feed. Their utensils also have a choke barrier which prevents children from placing the utensils too far into their mouths.
Pumpkin Chia Pudding
🎃1 cup unsweetened Almond milk
🎃1/2 cup organic Pumpkin purée
🎃1/4 cup Chia seeds
🎃1/2 banana, mashed
🎃1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
🎃1/8 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg or ground Nutmeg
🎃1/4 teaspoon ground Allspice
Place 1/2 a banana into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the pumpkin purée and mix to combine. Add the ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix to incorporate. Add the milk and chia seeds. Mix well. Cover it with a lid or plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator overnight or until it’s nice and thick like pudding.
*Add some maple syrup or more banana if you’d like to add more sweetness to this recipe.
I served it with shredded coconuts, strawberries, and banana.
