Gut Healing Pumpkin Pudding Squares
This pudding is made extra firm, so you can cut it into squares or even fun cook-ie cutter shapes and it can be eaten with the fingers. It makes a fantastic breakfast combined with a sausage or eggs and a tasty snack too. If you want a creamer, less firm pudding simply omit 1 Tbsp of gelatin.
• 1 can organic pumpkin puree
• 1 can natural coconut milk
• ½ cup raw honey or more to taste
• 1 tsp grated fresh ginger or ½ tsp dried ground ginger
• ¼ tsp ground clove
• 2 tsp cinnamon
• 3 Tbsp organic grass fed gelatin
• 2 Tbsp organic grass fed collagen powder
• ½ cup filtered water
Combine the water and gelatin in a small mixing bowl and fluff with a fork. Al-low the gelatin to bloom while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
In a large sauce pan combine the pumpkin, coconut milk, honey, ginger and spices. Stir to combine and allow to simmer over a medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Fluff the gelatin with a fork again and then whisk into the pumpkin puree mix-ture. Whisk until completely combined and no grainy bits of gelatin remain. Pour the mixture into a parchment lined 9 ½ by 13 pan. Place the pudding in the fridge to set for 2-4 hours. Once set you can cut the pudding into squares or I sometimes use cookie cutters to make fun shapes. These freeze well and even taste quite good frozen. I have on occasion placed a Popsicle stick on the shapes before freezing and then I have some fun and nutritious frozen treats on hand. Place a square of parchment paper between pudding squares to prevent from sticking and store in a Ziploc bag.
You can also use this recipe as a pudding layer in a layered cake.
