I guess it would have been more helpful to post this before the holiday, but it's still good year round. I don't recall where I found this, but it is wonderful even my very picky Dad (who thinks anything other than milk is the plague)likes it better than traditional (eggs, condensed milk, etc) pumpkin pie. It has all the flavor without the added fat. Here it is:
2 small boxes of vanilla flavored pudding (cooked, not instant) 2 cups almond milk 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 15oz 100% canned pumpkin Prepared pie crust of choice (I like to use Keebler's reduced fat graham cracker crust, it doesn't seem to bother me)
In a medium sauce pan, whisk pudding, milk, and spice together. Add pumpkin and stir. Continue stirring over medium heat and boil 1 minute. Cool. Pour into prepared crust. Enjoy.
(1)This is great to eat just as a pudding. Pour the filling into custard cups and enjoy.
(2) Pour filling into custard cups and crush graham cracker crumbs on top. It tastes just like the pie without the fat of the crust.
(3) Top with softened vanilla dairy-free icecream. Yum!
(4) Make your own pie spice (I love this recipe, I never buy it from the store): 1 1/2 t cinnamon 1/2 t nutmeg 1/2 t ginger 1/4 t cloves
