While optional, I love topping with chopped pecans before serving. Full of healthy fats and texture, the crunchy nuts are the perfect compliment to the creamy pudding.

Why are chia seeds good for you?

An excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium. As you know, Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

  1. This looks delicious! I have one question.. when you call for pure pumpkin, is the canned pumpkin what you mean or the fresh from the produce section?
