It is pumpkin season, so of course I have a few pumpkin recipes to share with you for the month of October. I’m really excited to share this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding! This pudding is dairy and refined sugar-free, and loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants.
In 2020, when trick-or-treat plans up in the air for most families, I thought this could be a fun chocolate treat to serve at home on Halloween. Set out a toppings bar and let everyone decorate their own pudding with their favorite toppings. Maybe even set out some gummy worms and chocolate sandwich cookies, and this could be a fun updated version of the “dirt cups” us Millennial kids grew up with! No matter what your Halloween plans are, serving this pudding with a toppings bar sounds like a fun party idea.
This pudding would also make an excellent pie filling. Pour the blended pudding into a prepared pie crust of your choice, top with whipped cream, and maybe it will be a fun twist to your Thanksgiving dessert table! It’s still a pumpkin pie, after all!
This pudding takes one step of planning ahead - be sure to put your can of full-fat coconut milk in the refrigerator the night before you plan to make the pudding. See my notes at the end of the recipe for more details.
