When fall arrives I pull my pumpkin recipes out of their file. I’m a huge fan of all things pumpkin as well as pumpkin spice. My husband? Not so much. While I add warming cinnamon and nutmeg to my daily (liver cleansing) Dandelion Coffee, he shies away from the flavors of fall.
I made this Pumpkin Chocolate Chiffon Pudding for my beloved, so that he would have a fun fall dessert to partake in while the boys go to town on Pumpkin Spice Meringues.
My husband is a fan of my chocolate recipes, and this is for him. You can’t go wrong with chocolate pudding. You also can’t go wrong with pumpkin pudding –that’s why I made a chocolate pumpkin pudding! And this Chocolate Pumpkin Chiffon Pudding is a richly decadent, yet healthy dessert for the whole family.

During fall when I’m obsessed with pumpkin, I keep a freshly baked pumpkin or squash in the fridge at all times. If you’re not sure how to do this see my How to Roast Pumpkin post. It’s easier than you think. If you don’t have time for that, I tested this Pumpkin Chocolate Chiffon Pudding recipe with canned pumpkin as well and I’m happy to report that it works! When you have canned pumpkin (or freshly baked pumpkin) on hand, this is a lovely, quick and easy pudding recipe, that’s perfect for fall, or any time of year!
Lately, the boys and I have been baking my Paleo Pumpkin Pie every weekend. They love this pie with homemade whipped cream (yes, they can eat dairy). It’s super fun to see my teenage boys in the kitchen teaching their friends how to make whipped cream from scratch. Next on their plate? A “how to make whipped cream from scratch” video. Stay tuned!
To see more of my boys and their friends in action in the kitchen, check us out on instagram, I post fun, healthy updates there everyday!
My teenage boys love these Pumpkin Spice Meringues. They plowed through batch after batch as I tested them. Yes, the boys are not only cookie lovers, they are meringue cookie lovers and devour my baking recipes. Right now they are asking for my Paleo Pumpkin Pie a couple of times each week. Of course I oblige! I am completely obsessed with pumpkin recipes, and especially pumpkin desserts now that fall is here.

This Pumpkin Spice Smoothie is perfect for fall! It’s also great for those times when you’re in the mood for a Pumpkin Pie but don’t want to go through the hassle of baking one. It’s made with baked pumpkin or squash. Remember, a pumpkin is a squash. For the smoothie depicted above I actually used one cup of red kuri squash.

Paleo Bagels are perfect for a festive low-carb brunch. They’re fantastic toasted, then topped with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, along with tomato or cucumber. If you can consume dairy, Paleo Bagels are wonderful with organic cultured cream cheese.
When I went grain-free in 2001, I thought my love affair with bagels had come to an end. But these grain-free bagels from my third cookbook, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, have made that thought a moot point. Paleo Bagels also make ... read more →
