Chef Kyle’s Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great afternoon. It’s been a wonderful week so far: a happy and euphoric blur, snuggling our newest family member as days blend into night. We’re hoping to head home from the hospital later today. Fingers crossed. :) This week, I have some special posts going up while we’re getting settled. This one is courtesy of my brother Kyle. Many of you already know he’s an amazingly talented young chef.

He takes a lot of pride in sourcing local and organic food whenever possible, and manages to make healthy cuisine taste luscious and decadent. His food is INCREDIBLE, and I often text him for recipe inspiration or ideas… especially if he posts something on social media that we need to recreate. When he posted this pumpkin chia pudding, I knew I wanted to share it with you all. He kindly gave me the recipe :)
