Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding


Recently, I realized that while I still can’t eat chocolate, foods containing only cocoa powder were fine, opening up a whole new world of tastes! Finally being able to enjoy hot cocoa with marshmallows, chocolate cookies, chili and mole sauces…and chocolate pudding!

Since I made this discovery close to Halloween, I had lots of canned pumpkin with which to play, and play I did. In order to create this treat:

~ place 6 ounces canned pumpkin into a small pan and warm through.

~ add in 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa and stir to combine.

~ taste and adjust sweetener of choice accordingly (I used molasses).

~ garnish with marshmallows and chocolate chips, if desired.


NOTE: This thickens quickly due to the pumpkin, so add a teaspoon or two of water or milk to the pan to adjust thickness if needed.
