Easy Pumpkin Pudding

Is Labor Day too early for pumpkin recipes?

Or a better question, do I care?

Nope!

Okay–moving on. I love pumpkin and could literally eat it year-round. And I really love fall. Everything about it. Pumpkin, the smell of falling leaves, the slight chill in the air. Even football.

Sorta kinda.

Don’t tell my husband.

This recipe is part of the Secret Recipe Club. I found it on my assigned blog, The Daily Dish Recipes. Nicole has a lot of great recipes on her site so make sure to drop by and pay her a visit! This is a quick and easy recipe that will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your craving for fall.

Easy Pumpkin Pudding
adapted from The Daily Dish Recipes

1/2 cup pumpkin purée
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup milk
one 1-ounce package of instant vanilla pudding
optional: whipped cream and/or pepitas for topping
optional: graham crackers for dipping

1. In a medium-large bowl, whisk together pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, milk, and instant pudding. Whisk until there are no lumps. Chill for about an hour or until firm.
2. Top with pepitas and/or whipped cream. It tastes great scooped up on a graham cracker as well!

Verdict: Delicious! Like I said, it will satisfy your craving for fall.
Husband’s take: As I type this, he has not yet tried it. But E loved it!
Changes I would make: None!
Difficulty: So easy!

PS: I Hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day! Any fun plans? I’m working my hospital job—woooooohoooo.

I don’t think today is too early for pumpkin, or apple recipes! I love fall and I’m thrilled that the season is “actually” here now that we’ve crossed the end-of-summer mark. I love this dip idea – looks really creamy and tasty.

I’m all for pumpkin all year ’round!! This looks absolutely fabulous! I seriously CANNOT wait to try it!!
I hear you on the work front — I’m working at my hospital job this weekend too, the overnights to boot. Kind of a weekend killer, but someone has to care for the patients! :)

NOT too early…in fact, I was just editing images for a pumpkin recipe to go out next week :) But we already ate it. Last week :)

Love the pudding!

NEVER too early for pumpkin. Especially when it’s used to make pudding.

I saw loads of pumpkins in the store the other day so definitely not too early! I’ve never really had an American pudding (in the UK pudding is just another word for dessert) but I’m so intrigued by this and it sounds delicious!

While I hate to see summer go, I am getting really excited for fall foods. I made my first apple dessert of the year yesterday and I can’t wait to bust out the pumpkin. This pudding looks super yummy and easy peasy: exactly the way I like my desserts! :)

I bet you could put the pudding into a pie shell or graham cracker crust and top it with whipped cream to make a “pumpkin chiffon pie”!

I make a pumpkin “pudding” by baking my pumpkin pie filling in a buttered cassarole dish without a crust. Easy, tasty, and no mess from rolling out pie crust.
