Fall is always a great time to stay indoors and try out a new recipe. With Thanksgiving only a month away, whip up some Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pudding for an easy and healthy holiday dessert.

Ingredients:

1 can full-fat coconut milk
3 teaspoons gelatin
1 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

1) Pour half of the coconut milk in small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over top. Allow it to bloom (or soak up the liquid) for 5 minutes.

2) Whisk together the remaining coconut milk, pumpkin puree, honey, and pumpkin pie spice in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.

3) Pour in the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Do not let it boil. Pour mixture into a large heatproof bowl and press a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the liquid. This will prevent a gelatin ‘skin’ from forming on top.

4) Place it in the refrigerator for 6 hours or until set. The pudding will be almost solid when chilled. Remove the plastic wrap and use hand beaters or a stand mixer to beat for 3 to 5 minutes on high, until smooth and creamy.

“I was first introduced to Pura Vida Bracelets in the summer.  The vibrant colors snatched my attention (so did the wonderful cause behind them), and I would see them being kissed by the sun in the California beach towns where I live. When Pura Vida contacted me to shoot in the fall, I was impressed with how beautifully the the bracelets would pair with deep, dark, and rich-colored outfits for the season. I contacted Taryn, of Velvet Sugar Blog, with the perfect reddish ombre hair and gypsy style to model. We drove through Avila, CA and pulled over in some gorgeous areas along See Canyon on a whim for photos. It’s always an adventure with her!” – Kelsea Holder
