I am always looking for delicious and simple vegan dessert options and chia seed pudding is one of my favorites. This one brings in the tastes of fall with the addition of pumpkin and maple syrup making it the perfect dessert for this time of year. You can also substitute the pumpkin for any mashed fruits – berries, bananas, and mango puree are all delicious. Consider adding in some chocolate chips as well for an extra special treat.
