Pumpkin Pudding


1 can coconut milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 cup pumpkin puree (see comments)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp clove

In large saucepan, bring coconut milk and sugar to boil over med high heat. Lower heat to bare simmer, and whisk in xanthan gum. Add pumpkin puree and spices, and whisk over low heat until thickened.

Spoon into serving dishes, and let cool to room temperature. Makes four generous servings or six "normal" helpings. (If you don't eat it all directly from the pot first!)

If you're using fresh pumpkin, drain about 1 1/2 c. on paper towels in a colander, until it's fairly 'dry'. If using canned pumpkin, you can use straight out of the can. You just want the puree to be fairly dry so it'll set up.

If you prefer, sub 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice for cinnamon/cloves.

Check coconut milk brand to be sure it's safe for your allergen set. Do likewise for pumpkin if using canned.

You probably could sub pumpkin pie filling for pumpkin + spices, but I haven't tried it with this.

Hi. Just curious what kind of canned pumpkin you use.

You can use any brand of canned pumpkin. Just don't use the the "pumpkin pie mix" in a can.
