Pumpkin Cocoa Pudding

Pumpkin Cocoa Pudding

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Pumpkin, Canned, Organic
3 tbsp Special Dark Cocoa powder
Stevia Glycerite equal to approx 2T sweetness (to taste)
3 tbsp brewed Espresso (cool slightly)
1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Directions

I used stevia, but use what you like.
The pumpkin is a standard can of pumpkin puree (15oz I think, not pie filling).

Pulse everything in a food processor, blender or use an immersion blender until smooth and well blended,
Taste and adjust sweetener if needed.
Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.


**You can soften 2-3oz of cream cheese and add it when you blend everything for a richer dessert.

The cinnamon isn't necessary, but the combination of cinnamon and vanilla bring out the chocolaty flavor of the cocoa powder instead of just the cocoa flavor.

I'm trying to figure out how to make it "set" so I can make individual frozen puddings from them, but still stick to primal/paleo with the recipe

Would grass-fed beef gelatin (doesn't taste like beef) still play nice with Paleo rules?

How about an egg? Instead of cooling the espresso, use it warm-hot added to the other ingredients including the egg to "cook" it somewhat. Blend again, then chill?

I just thought of this!
Back in the day, I had a recipe from The Joy Of Cooking for Pumpking Chiffon pie...
Basically, you did the pumpkin/egg yolks and other goodies in a double boiler, cooled. I a separate bowl, you beat the egg whites until stiff. Once the pumpkin mixture was cooled, you folded the egg white into the pumpkin mixture, poured into baked shell, then chilled.
Maybe somewhere in there lies an answer for helping your mixture set? Like adding the warm espresso as stated above, and having the egg whites beat separately first and folding them into the pumpkin/espresso/egg yolk, etc mixture?
Okay. I'm out of thoughts now. Probably all my thoughts for the entire day.

Wow, this sounds so good! And EASY, my #1 requirement! lol...

I've got all the ingredients, too, except maybe the vanilla.

I need to add a reminder in my phone to save some coffee tomorrow morning...

I tried this & it is good! No vanilla so I used French Vanilla coffee.

I work at not eating dairy so I did not add the cream cheese but, I think it would add some nice richness and maybe a cheesecake taste. I find myself wondering how coconut milk might taste added to this?

I bet coconut milk would be good. Gelitan too. It is not only ok, but some paleo people go out of their way to eat it. It is supposed to be good for healing the gut.

I just made chocolate chia pudding this morning, but I think I'll try this next.
