Holiday Treat: Pumpkin Pie & Apple Pie Chia Seed Pudding

One treat I look forward to every holiday season is a good slice of pumpkin and apple pie. There’s something about their spices and ingredients mixed with some cold Cool Whip that just sends you to heaven with each bite. In honor of the holiday season, I thought I’d incorporate these holiday desserts into an amazing on-the-go snack or holiday treat recipe: Apple Pie & Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding!

Chia seed pudding is also a great choice for breakfast on the go and can be prepared ahead of time. You can customize your pudding with different flavors and toppings that you have on hand. I once made chocolate chia seed pudding and it was so delicious!

Benefits of Chia Seeds:
  • Packed with Fiber & Great For Digestion
  • High in Protein
  • Twice the Potassium Content of a Banana
  • Good Source of Omega-3
  • Lots of Antioxidants

You can add chia seeds to almost anything to add some health benefits to your meal. I love adding them on top of peanut butter toast! When it comes to both pumpkin pie and apple pie chia seed pudding, the base ingredients are the same, but the spices and toppings are a little different! 

Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding


  • 2 TBSP Chia Seeds
  • ⅔ Cup Almond Milk
  • ¼ TSP Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Maple Syrup
  • 2 TBSP Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 TSP Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Vanilla Coconut Yogurt
  • Pecans

Making this recipe is super easy! For pumpkin pie chia seed pudding, combine chia seeds, milk, vanilla, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice in a container with a lid. Make sure to stir very well so the chia seeds don’t clump at the bottom. Place the container in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. The chia seeds will soak and expand, creating that pudding-like texture. 

TIP: After an hour of it being in the fridge I like to stir it once more to really get everything blended. 

Once you are ready to serve, add a dollop or two of some coconut vanilla yogurt (or any yogurt of choice) to act like your Cool Whip. For some crunch, I like to add some pecans on top!

Apple Pie Chia Seed Pudding:

For the apple pie chia seed pudding, mix the chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, maple syrup, and apple pie spice in a container with a lid. Stir well and place in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. Essentially, the instructions are the same as preparing the pumpkin pie chia seed pudding, simply supplement the ingredients below. As for the warm apple topping, check out the additional preparation instructions further down!


  • 2 TBSP Chia Seeds
  • ⅔ Cup Almond Milk 
  • ¼ TSP Vanilla
  • 1 TBSP Maple Syrup
  • 1 TSP Apple Pie Spice
Warm Apple Topping:

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 TBSP Butter/Coconut Oil 
  • 1/2 of an Apple
  • Cinnamon

For the cinnamon apple topping, start by heating up a medium pan with some coconut oil. Chop up half of an apple into small bite-size pieces and add to the pan. Add cinnamon and simmer until the apples become soft. Add this topping to your pudding when you are ready to serve or ahead of time and have it cold!
