Easy as pie to make! For those WWers out there, this is a 0 point treat!


  1. Mix the water and pudding mix together until there are no more lumps.
  2. Bring to a slow boil in a saucepan.
  3. Stir frequently.
  4. Remove from heat and fold in pumpkin and spices.
  5. Pour into 8 small serving cups.
  6. Refrigerate 2 hours until firm.
  7. Top with fat free whipped topping to serve.
  8. I tried something a little new based on some suggestions in the comments. This year I used butterscotch pudding (fat free, sugar free instant) and did half water and half light eggnog! Whipped those together REALLY well before folding in the pumpkin. It added about 16 calories a serving, but was WAY creamier and just delicious!

Thank you! Thank you! Since discovering this recipe a few months ago, pudding and canned pumpkin have become staple pantry items in our house. This is the perfect way to satisfy a dessert craving in a pinch without compromising healthy eating. I have also made this with instant pudding mix with good results. Just mix the pudding with cold water and skip the cooking step.

Like another reviewer suggested, I used skim milk and added 3 packets of splenda. I also added more nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice for flavor I got about 6 servings, dishing the pudding into wine glasses with a layer of cool whip in between and decorating with a cinnamon stick. Very tasty and pretty :) thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is amazing! I have tried many variations, but have found you get the most "bang for your buck" (calorie wise and taste wise) with using half a cup skim milk and half a cup water. One thing I think calorie-conscious people should know though is that it is not only 16 calories per serving...the pumpkin can comes to 140 calories, the pudding mix comes to that means the whole recipe is 290 calories and 290 divided by 8 (servings) is actually 36 calories..I'm sure it's not that big of a deal, but just thought you should know hahha. Anyway, thanks for the great recipe! ^_^
