Now that it is almost Thanksgiving, everyone is talking about the meals and desserts. All of the talk and advertisements, I've been craving pumpkin pie. However, Jazlyn doesn't like pie crusts. So, I decided to come up with an alternative. We just made this Pumpkin Pie Pudding this afternoon and it is so good that I don't even miss the crust and my craving has been satisfied. It tastes like a thinner version of the pumpkin pie filling. Another plus is that it only took 2 minutes to make.
Pumpkin Pie Pudding
1 box instant vanilla pudding (I used Jell-O)
1 cup soy milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon or to taste
Whisk all of the ingredients until thoroughly combined. Store in the fridge.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
