I made a batch of my Homemade Caramel Sauce the other day and for some strange reason I don’t know what to do with it! I drizzle some into my coffee each morning but I still have so much leftover. I have never encountered this problem with the last seven batches (yes, seven) so I thought about making a dessert with it. I looked in my pantry and I saw a can of pumpkin. It’s November, people like pumpkin, and even more people like caramel. I was too lazy to turn on the oven, despite the cold weather, so I thought about making something no-bake. I went online and searched “caramel pumpkin.” Within minutes I was drooling all over my keyboard with all the delicious recipes I saw: caramel pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice caramels, pumpkin cake with caramel frosting, AHHHH just give me all of that please!!
But I was in the mood for a healthy treat, not something that would weigh me down and make me feel sluggish, so I decided to just make my own caramel + pumpkin recipe. Into the kitchen I went. Pudding was the first thing that came to mind because it is quick to make, no-bake and super easy to healthify.
Toss a few ingredients in a blender and you’ll be rewarded with this Healthy Caramel Pumpkin Pudding — a light and airy dessert that you can feel good about eating!
