Pumpkin Spiced Latte Chia Seed Pudding

On a damp, raining fall day, there’s no better way to warm the soul then to spend it cooking and baking with fall fresh apples, pumpkins and squash . I spent the better part my Saturday roasting a few sugar pumpkins, then pureeing it using an immersion blender to make soups, muffins and scones. Had a little leftover so tried adding it to a chia seed pudding in place of fruit for a fall twist on one of my favourite breakfasts.
