  • 2 cups soy milk or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 and 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (from one 15-ounce can of 100% pure pumpkin)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice (optional)
  • Whipped cream (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, stir together corn starch and brown sugar. Add 1 tablespoon of soy milk, stirring until a paste is formed.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly with a whisk to prevent clumping. Mix in the pumpkin puree. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer, continuing to stir.
  3. Once thickened to pudding consistency (it should coat the back of a spoon without falling off), remove from heat. Add vanilla extract, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
  4. Serve cold from the fridge. Makes about 6 to 7 half-cup servings. Serve in small ramekins or jars and top with coconut creme and vegan mini chocolate chips. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream (optional, calories not included in nutrition facts).
