Homemade Pumpkin Pudding – The Perfect Fall Snack!

I was going to wait until the first official day of Fall before I started with the pumpkin things, but even Starbucks has already brought out the Pumpkin Spice Latte, so I thought…why not?  Pumpkin is such a healthy, delicious creation, with or without the spice, and this recipe is light on the spice but heavy on the flavor and goodness.  It is a great snack for everyone and can be served with just about anything.  This is not your traditional pumpkin pie filling…this is pumpkin pudding!

Cold pumpkin pudding is a great snack for a cool fall day or as a special surprise in your child's lunchbox.  It can also be used as dip for graham crackers or gingersnap cookies!
