Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Mousse

Pumpkin pie chia pudding mousse is creamy, delicious, and filled with pumpkin pie spices. Not only is it gluten-free and dairy-free, but it’s loaded with healthy fats and fiber. Blend it quickly in your blender and you’ll have a satisfying yet guilt-free dessert in no time!

It’s that time of year again, where a blend of cinnamon and pumpkin spices are on our minds. I’d normally go for my paleo pumpkin bread or paleo pumpkin pie. But this year, I’ve decided to make a pumpkin pie chia pudding mousse.

If you’ve been following me for some time now, you’ll know that chia pudding is one of my go-to recipes for breakfast or dessert. It’s easy to make, requires no baking, and is filled with nutrients.

While the recipe normally calls for stirring almond milk or cashew milk and chia seeds together, I’ve discovered that blending it takes it to a whole new level. It creates a smooth, creamy and luscious consistency that will have you wanting more with every bite.

  1. I made this and it was so good!! This is my season so resisting pumpkin spice junk food has been hard but this hits the spot!! Perfect blend of creamy pudding! This will be a regular in my weekly rotation. Thank you Lisa for helping me on this healthy journey!!

    • Hi Kimberly – So happy you loved this pumpkin chia mousse! It’s definitely a perfect way to satisfy those sweet cravings, but in a healthier way :)

  2. oh bother…riversidemaple.com’s ad is running across your tutorial video blocking half the screen.  it’s a Google provided ad.  I hope you can remove it.

    • Ah, so sorry about that Hillary. Unfortunately, I can’t control individual ads, but I’ll definitely report it to my ad provider. Thanks for letting me know! :)

  3. Hi ! 
    I love this idea because I don’t like the consistency of normal chia pudding, but I’m not a pumpkin fan, any idea what I could put instead ? 
    Also, how long can I keep it in the fridge ?

    Thanks, I love your Youtube channel, I’ve made several recipes and I love all of them :) 

    • Hi Romane- If you’re not a fan of pumpkin, I would have to say another popular chia pudding mousse that I’ve created is my Chocolate Chia Pudding recipe! Just follow the same recipe, but blend it instead of just stirring it together.

      • Another excellent recipe in the Fall Meal Prep series! I have this chilling in tiny mason jars in the fridge. Now to make the coconut whipped cream! So yummy and perfect for this rainy fall day.
        Thank you.

      • Hi Kara – Yay! I hope you enjoy this pumpkin chia mousse :)

  4. Hi Lisa,

    I am not a fan of the mousse texture in foods. Could I combine the ingredients and just not blend them? Would it come out like your other chia seed pudding recipes? Thanks!

  5. Hi Lisa,

    I am not a fan of the mousse texture in foods. Could I combine the ingredients and just not blend them? Would it come out like your other chia seed peddling recipes? Thanks!

  6. Since it only uses 1/2 c of the pumpkin, what do you do with the rest? Fridge or freezer? Or do you have a suggestion for another recipe… (hopefully!)!
