Pumpkin Spice Chia Porridge

I am fully into fall this year. I guess the truth is that I am into it every year. The sights, sounds, temperatures, sensations and flavors of the season are always inspiring to me.

Today I was messing around in the kitchen and put together a few ingredients that turned out really delicious and I thought I'd share it. It's super easy to make this before bed so you can enjoy it for a super fast and nutritious breakfast!

Pumpkin Spice Chia Porridge
1 1/2 cups date sweetened almond milk (I make my own, but store bought Vanilla would be great too)
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons carrot juice (I normally juice my own, but had picked up some at a local juice bar)
Generous pinch Pumpkin Pie spice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

I combined all these ingredients into a glass jar, sealed tightly, shook until well blended - then I put it into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to congeal. It is so yummy & it will be my breakfast tomorrow morning! Let me know if you make it or if you have another favorite combo along these lines that you really like!
