Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding

Must Try

I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

I love every recipe I post on HFFL, (they’re my little food babies), but every once in a while I come up with something that is really special; something that I know I will make over and over again.

One such recipe was my Chocolate Ganache Pudding that I posted back in July. Rich & chocolatey, lusciously smooth & thick, fudgey pudding.

SO. Good.

Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding

I’ve made that pudding several times over the past three months, but decided to put an autumnal spin on the base recipe in celebration of my favorite seasonal ingredient: yep, pumpkin.

Half of the avocado called for in the original recipe is swapped out for pumpkin puree, a generous amount of pumpkin pie spice takes the place of the espresso powder & some of the cocoa powder, and maple extract joins the vanilla extract for an extra boost of flavor.

The resulting pudding is just as silky (though a bit lighter) as its predecessor, but with the added flavor kick of warm pumpkin pie spices.

If you’ve never experienced the revelatory taste sensation of chocolate paired with pumpkin, then perhaps this pudding will tempt you to give it a whirl.

But I might be face planted in a bowl of this decadent vegan pudding, rendering a reply unlikely ;).
