Pumpkin Pudding: From Scratch

Last weekend I did do a from scratch item.  Not a whole meal, but just something I was looking to make since Thanksgiving time.  I thought pudding would be a nice thing to try from scratch.  I have only made pudding from the instant mix (I don’t actually eat it that often) and this recipe made it seem really easy…which it was.

I knew I had to make this recipe when I saw it because I was already thinking of pumpkin custard.  This pudding seemed close enough.

My only concern was the use of fat free instead of 1% milk.  Sometimes the commissary just does not have exactly what you need so improvising and being flexible is key.

I followed the directions and heated the milk.

Then I added the pumpkin.

Next thing I knew it was ready to go into little dessert cups and be chilled for eating later on.

  This was delicious.  I think the fat free milk did make it a little thinner than I would have expected but that didn’t stop me from eating it!

QUESTIONS:  What is your favorite kind of pudding?  Have you ever made pudding from scratch?  What is your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin?

No, I have never made pudding from scratch, but it's been on my "list" forever!!! Your pumpkin pudding sounds great! I love just a little bit of pumpkin butter in my oatmeal... :-)

I just made some chocolate pudding last week and hope to post it this coming week. I love pudding, but no longer eat the boxed kind. I think it's worth effort to make it from scratch, much creamier. I need to try pumpkin!
