Autumn skies and pumpkin pies! I’m entering the Fall season spirit with this Pumpkin Chai Chia Pudding featuring Kite Hill Foods. Autumn brings a spectrum of golden colors, cozy sweaters, and the comforting embrace of warm spices. Today, I’m unveiling a delightful fusion of these fall favorites that embodies the spirit of the season and brims with plant-based goodness.

Since going fully plant-based, Kite Hill has been a game-changer. This brand has consistently offered great-tasting food without any compromise. Kite Hill is all about cherishing the authentic taste of dairy while being kind to our plant friends. It’s non-GMO, gluten- and dairy-free, and crafted from homemade almond milk, made in-house. The absence of artificial flavors or preservatives is just the cherry on top.

I was overjoyed that my local Safeway King Street location stocks Kite Hill products, especially the 5.3 oz & 16oz Almond Milk Yogurt. This Pumpkin Chai Chia Pudding Parfait, inspired by the Autumn season, is a testament to simple, healthy, and delectable fall desserts. The best part? No cooking is required. You have a dish that delights the palate and warms the soul in mere minutes.

Whether starting your day with a dessert-like breakfast or winding down with a sweet treat, this Pumpkin Chai Chia Pudding Parfait adorned with walnuts and pomegranate is the epitome of perfection.

Let’s Get Cooking!

Kitchen Equipment You’ll Need:

  • Medium-sized bowls (2)
  • Whisk
  • Airtight container or jar
  • Measuring spoons and cups

Ingredients:

Pumpkin Chai:

Chia Pudding:

Chai Spice Blend:

  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ tablespoon ground allspice
  • ½ tablespoon ground cloves
  • ½ tablespoon ground nutmeg

Optional Toppings: pomegranates, granola, raw walnuts.

Method:

  1. Preparing the Pumpkin Chai: In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond milk, pumpkin puree, chai spice, vanilla, salt, and maple syrup. Ensure the mixture is smooth and consistent.
  2. Crafting the Chia Pudding: In another bowl, stir together chia seeds, almond milk, Kite Hill yogurt, vanilla bean, and salt. Mix thoroughly and chill in the fridge for 2-4 hours until set.
  3. Creating the Chai Spice Blend: Transfer all spices to an airtight container. Seal tightly and give it a good shake. This homemade spice blend can be stored for up to a year.
  4. Serving: When you’re ready to indulge, layer your glass or bowl with the Pumpkin Chai mix, followed by the Chia pudding. Garnish with pomegranates and walnuts for that extra touch.

Notes:

  1. Ensure you use pure pumpkin puree, not the pie filling variant with added sugars.
  2. The pudding can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days, making it a convenient prep-ahead dessert or snack.
  3. You can swap almond milk with oat, soy, or coconut milk based on preference.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

1. Can I use regular yogurt instead of Kite Hill Yogurt?

Yes, you can. Kite Hill is a vegan alternative, but if dairy isn’t a concern for you, feel free to use your preferred yogurt like Icelandic yogurt or Greek yogurt.

2. What can I use if I don’t have vanilla bean powder?

Vanilla extract is a great alternative. Use half a teaspoon in place of the vanilla bean powder.

3. Is there any alternative to maple syrup? Agave nectar or honey can be good alternatives, but the flavor might vary slightly.

4. Can I make the chai spice blend in bulk? Absolutely! Just maintain the ratios and store in an airtight container.

Pairings:

This pudding pairs beautifully with a warm mug of herbal tea, a cold brew coffee, or even a glass of almond milk.
