Pumpkin pie pudding is a great way to usher in fall! Enjoy all the delicious pumpkin pie flavor with none of the work of making a pie!
Sometimes it’s nice to have an easy to throw together dessert that tastes fancy, but you know it only took you 5 minutes to whip up in the kitchen.
With the help of Simply Delish Vanilla Pudding, this dessert is super-fast and easy to mix together.
What’s Simply Delish pudding you ask?
Simply Delish is a brand that makes pudding and jello mixes that are keto friendly, Vegan, and sugar-free.
While I would never recommend regularly consuming pre-packaged foods, I do make exceptions in our house.
Simply Delish is one of those products that I will occasionally use when I don’t have time to make pudding from scratch or I’m just feeling lazy.
Can I make this without a Vanilla Pudding Mix?
As always, I never have a recipe that has to be followed to the letter of the law.
Any vanilla pudding box or recipe can be used in place of the Simply Delish Vanilla Pudding in this recipe.
If you already have a favorite vanilla pudding recipe, just substitute it for the can of coconut milk and the box of Simply Delish vanilla pudding.
If you don’t have a favorite vanilla pudding recipe, but don’t want to use a box of vanilla pudding, use the following as a replacement:
Boxed Vanilla Pudding Substitute:
When the recipe below calls for the box of pudding mix, just blend these ingredients in with the pumpkin instead!
Can I use Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Of course! I’m allergic to ginger, so I personally can’t use pumpkin pie spice, but that doesn’t mean you can’t!
Having one spice to measure instead of 3 will also save you time!
So to use pre-made pumpkin spice, instead of adding the cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg, use 4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead!
Just make sure to add in the salt still! It really helps pull the flavors together and adds healthy minerals to your dessert!
Dressing Up Your Pumpkin Pie Pudding
So it just took you about 2 minutes to whip up the pudding, but maybe you made this dessert for a party and want it to look fancy.
As I show in the pictures, use small glass jars like I did to make individual portions.
Then use a frosting bag and tip to pipe on homemade whipped cream and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top!
Don’t worry, the homemade whipped cream also comes together in a snap (seriously only another 5 minutes).
If you are making this in the summer, your whipped cream might come out a little too runny to “frost” on top right away.
I recommend putting the whipped cream in the fridge until it is the right consistency to pipe on top of the pudding.
And to keep the topping cute, make sure to put these on a baking sheet and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.
The whipped cream will get runny in warm temperature!
I once made the mistake of piping the homemade whipped cream on top of a warm pumpkin pie and ended up with whipped cream soup on top of the pie – OOPS!
