Butternut Squash Pudding

This is definitely my new favorite snack!

Yesterday I made a super easy butternut squash puree. After one taste test, I was in love. It’s creamy, slightly sweet, and the perfect autumn food.


I decided to add some mix-ins and turn some of it into a pudding. Needless to say, half of it is gone already. I’ll have to get some more butternut at the store to make more ASAP!

Butternut Squash Pudding:

butternut squash puree
1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
2 tbsp non-dairy/milk

Add-ins: raisins, goji berries, Vega chocolate health food optimizer (or other chocolate superfood/protein), cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, granola or cereal, flax seeds, bee pollen, cottage cheese, maple syrup, etc.

Mix everything together and let sit for a few minutes for the chia seeds to gel.

If you don’t have chia seeds, it’s not a big deal.

    I’m not a huge fan of chia seeds, but I love me some winter squash pudding – I made a ton with that hubbard I pureed. You don’t really even need a thickener!

    This is great! I made some last night. I had ordered my chia from http://www.runningfood.com and have had so much fun experimenting with new recipes. Try some today if you have never ordered from them. Again, http://www.runningfood.com
