This recipe for Easy Pumpkin Pudding was originally written by a past contributor about 5 years ago.

I was looking for a fun and quick recipe to make for the kids for tonight.

I decided that this one looked like something they’d all like.

It would be a special treat for them, and a good fall treat since today was actually pretty cool and kind of dreary out.

And, probably most importantly, it wouldn’t take a lot of time for me to prepare.

We have a bunch of these adorable Weck Jars.

The kids often use them as juice glasses when they want orange juice or a small smoothie with breakfast.

They are also the perfect shape and size for individual pudding servings.

After I made the pudding and put it all in cute little Weck Jars.

These individual Pumpkin Pudding jars were too cute to not snap a few new photos of to share.

And since it has been about 5 years since this recipe was published, I thought why not give it a quick update and bring it back to the surface.

I told myself I wouldn’t post any pumpkin recipe until October.

But, it is the weekend and it is almost October.

And you might want something dessert-y to make over the weekend.

I figured we could celebrate all things pumpkin a few days early and it wouldn’t hurt anyone.

How to Make Easy Pumpkin Pudding

This recipe is so easy that any of our kids could make it themselves.

It is so much easier than making a pan of Easy Homemade Fudgy Brownies.

And it definitely makes less mess than baking cookies!

Scroll to the very end of the post to see the recipe instructions.

You’ll need 4 simple ingredients to make this pumpkin pudding recipe.

I bet you have most of them already.

I only had to buy the pudding mix.

  1. Vanilla Instant Pudding
  2. Evaporated Milk
  3. Pumpkin Puree
  4. Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend

Add the vanilla pudding mix, evaporated milk, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice blend to the jar of your blender.

The Blendtec Blender is my absolute favorite blender. We use it almost every day for all sorts of recipes, including this Easy Pumpkin Pudding.

Blend until mixed!

You can definitely make the recipe in a mixing bowl with a wire whisk like the instant pudding box instructions tell you to.

That might be a good idea if you don’t trust your kids to operate a blender without some sort of pudding explosion happening all over the kitchen.

(that has definitely happened before in my kitchen!)

After I divided the pudding between individual serving containers.

I added a little dollop of whipped cream on top and a sprinkle of the pumpkin pie spice.

You could also top the whipped cream with some shaved chocolate.

But these extra steps definitely aren’t necessary.

Store the pudding in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.

It is best served chilled.

This Easy Pumpkin Pudding is the perfect way to welcome October and the fall season.

I am definitely glad to see a few cooler fall days in our forecast!
