Pumpkin Pudding

At our house, in the fall, we really enjoy eating pumpkin pudding. It's a little like eating a really creamy pumpkin pie without the crust. I believe the recipe is from Libby and was featured in the paper years back. It is so easy to make and enjoy. You can use pumpkin that you bake or a can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling). We used the pie pumpkin that we baked a week ago to make up a batch of this after we made the Pumpkin Streusel Muffins.

Pumpkin Pudding

1 small instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 c milk (you can use evaporated milk for creamier/richer pudding)
1 3/4 c pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Mix. Chill. Serve.

It really is that easy.

It is very delicious. I understand in fact that Jello has a seasonal Pumpkin Pudding offering. It is probably pretty tasty, but I would have to wonder if it includes all the benefits of pumpkin - beta carotene and other vitamins. My guess is it just pumpkin flavor.

I am SO excited about this one! I adore anything pumpkin, but since hubby and I have been doing the South Beach diet, we're limited on the breads we can eat (as in, none). However, we do pudding a lot (sugar-free) and we can eat pumpkin - I'm trying it tonight! Woo Hoo! You have made my day with this recipe! :-)
