Serving
This healthy pumpkin pudding recipe is an incredibly versatile dessert. Here are some tips for serving it.

  • Spread into a pre-made pie shell, top with blueberries and whipped cream, and serve as a quick pumpkin cream pie.
  • Crush up one graham cracker into a bowl, scoop a 1/2 cup of pudding over the crackers, and sprinkle with mint leaves.
  • Cut up bananas in a bowl and top with the pumpkin pudding for a rich treat.
  • Mix Greek yogurt with vanilla and honey and use that in place of whipped cream on top.
  • For a fun holiday dessert, serve it as a dip with ginger bread men as “crackers” for dipping.
