Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pudding
Chocolate and pumpkin is a great couple, aren’t they?
I mentioned on Monday that we just used up our last bag of homemade garden tomato sauce that I froze. The same goes for pumpkin! When making this pumpkin pudding, I had to reach for my last bag of frozen pumpkin puree.
I’m always a bit sad seeing the last bag gone, but it’s a great feeling knowing all the vegetables get used with love. We just planted our pumpkin seeds last week so already I’m planning for some Summer pumpkins! Are you guys ready for the pumpkin dance? Prepare yourself… hopefully, I’ll be dancing with happiness soon!
Lots of people think Pumpkin is only for Fall months but I don’t agree with that. I think Pumpkin is great for the summer months for cool treats.
My observation is that kids love desserts. I love desserts. They are my favorite part of the meal. Or just sometimes the only part of the meal.
But desserts often mean a whole load of sugar and unhealthy ingredients. This makes you think twice before making any desserts. If that’s so, opt for healthy desserts.
This Pumpkin Pudding is awesome for so many reasons. For one, you are using 1 and a half cups of pumpkin so it’s full of fiber! I totally recommended for babies, too (just skip the extra chocolate chips on top!)! And this is great for healthy desserts option for kids’ parties.
Make note, mommies of picky eaters: I recommend the good ol’ trick of making this recipe for pumpkin haters. Having them exclaim how great it is, and then laughing and telling them how much pumpkin they ate! Oh, I love being mean!
Dairy-Free Vegan Pudding
This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pudding is not only healthy, but it’s also a dairy-free vegan pudding. If you have just gone vegan and missing out on the puddings, this vegan pudding is pure comfort food. The pumpkin in this vegan pudding adds richness to the chocolate pudding.
If vegan is important to you, just make sure you read the ingredients to make sure your chocolate chips are vegan. If it’s not important to you, just buy whatever chocolate chips you want!
You are using 1.5 cups of pumpkin to 1 cup chocolate chips so you’d think this is super pumpkin tasting, but it’s not. It’s still super rich in chocolate tasting to the extent that people who don’t like pumpkin (gasp!) will still be licking their dishes when they’re done.
