Chocolate Pumpkin Chiffon Pudding

 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!

  1. This is the second time this has happened, and I know how to FIX it, just apparently don’t know how to PREVENT it. The “it” being a grainy texture. I know it has to do with temperatures, and maybe my eggs and coconut milk were too cold – that could be it. But the fix is warming the pudding up again (in a warm water bath) and re-blending until silky. Anyone else dealt with this? Kitchen chemists please advise!

  2. I took this dessert along w/some pumpkin spice GF snickerdoodles to my mom’s for Thanksgiving dinner last night and everyone loved the chiffon SO much!! Thanks for posting the recipe :)

  3. I made this today. Oh. My. YUM. I heated the coconut milk and eggs gently on the stove, whizzed that up in the Vitamix, then added pumpkin, a splash of vanilla, and melted super dark chocolate chips. No sugar. It’s PERFECT. It set up really quickly, it’s light, and decadent. A few bites is a perfect treat! My husband declared it too bitter…which makes it all that much better, as now I don’t have to share. ;-)

  4. I made this yesterday. So delicious! I didn’t have the chocolate chunks so I cheated and used dark cocoa powder with some coconut oil. Melted that together then added the eggs so they were heated a bit too. I also added more coconut cream and only half the sweetener. I like my chocolate dark. It was so thick and decadent. I’m not even sharing it with my family. I divided into containers and hid some in the fridge and a couple in the freezer for another time of chocolate desperation.

  5. Thanks for the link Elana! Ahh, so many places to try, just might have to stay the night just to soak it all in. Thanks again!

  6. My crew of four kids under six and I made this pudding and (except for my savory-inclined child) all of us gobbled it up! Next time I’ll add a dash of chile or cinnamon to spice it up a bit. We love all of Elana’s recipes–thank you so much for continuing to share!

  7. I made this today and it didn’t set like it did in the photo although it tasted great, not the consistency of pudding. Any ideas?
