Vegan pumpkin pudding with tapioca is a perfect recipe for a dessert or snack for people who have excluded dairy, meat and lactose from their diet. Preparing this pudding is very simple and although you need to cook it for about 30 minutes, you don’t have to work too hard with it, assuming, of course, that you already have pumpkin puree at hand. If you don’t have ready-made puree, the time it will take to make this dessert may be significantly longer. I always have plenty of ready-to-use puree in my freezer and I suggest making larger quantities and freezing them.
I make pumpkin pudding with tapioca using plant milk. In this particular recipe, I used rice milk, but I also often use coconut, almond and oat milk to prepare it. I season the pudding to taste with a mixture of spices found in gingerbread. If you don’t have gingerbread spice at home, you can add cinnamon, a bit of nutmeg and ground cloves. When cooking this pudding, you can be sure that the aroma of spices will be in your kitchen 🙂 I encourage you to try the following recipe for pumpkin pudding with tapioca and I wish you a tasty meal.
