Easy Single Serving Pumpkin Pie {Just 3 Ingredients!}

Easy Single Serving Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is definitely a staple dish this time of year.  It’s gotta be the most popular pumpkin dish by far.  But, what happens when that craving hits – and there’s not a pumpkin pie slice in site?

That’s when you whip yourself up a little single serving treat that takes just seconds to make, and totally satisfies that pumpkin pie craving you’re having!  Yep, I said you can make this in just seconds… ok, maybe a minute or two depending on how fast or slow you are!  Either way, I promise you it’s super quick – even if you’re not Speedy Gonzales.  Andale andale, arriba arriba! ;)

Besides the time factor, another great thing about this simple little treat is that you can customize it based on any dietary needs you may have.  Since you’re using a snack pack sized vanilla pudding (or equal amount of already prepared) – you can easily use fat free, low fat, or sugar free options.  Even if you opt to go with the regular vanilla pudding (as I do), the pudding itself only contains 100 calories – and when paired with the other 2 ingredients in this recipe, you’re only consuming around 150 calories or less.  Pretty awesome!

Here’s what you need:

Easy Single Serving Pumpkin Pie

 

First, take a graham cracker & crumble it up in the bottom of the dish you wish to eat your ‘pumpkin pie’ out of. You can crumble another cracker into it if you want more ‘crust’ – it’s totally up to you.

Now, combine 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree (or pumpkin pie filling will work too) with 1 vanilla pudding cup in a separate small bowl. If you’re using pumpkin puree, and want a little more spice element to it – you can just add a little smidgen of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon to it.  I actually like mine just fine without it, but it’s personal preference.

You can also use already prepared vanilla pudding, a little less than 1/2 cup will do the trick.  Scoop the mixture on top of your crumbled graham crackers.

If you’d like to go an extra step, you can even top it with a dollop of whipped cream.

There you go – all the flavors of pumpkin pie in an individual serving that took you no time at all to prepare.  How simple was that?!

    great idea, what do you do with the rest of the puree? refrigerate for how long, till next craving?

    • Cathy Fick Hough

      you could freeze it in tablespoon drops then just thaw them out as needed????

        I’ve never tried this, so I’m not sure I could advise on this. If you try it though, I’d love to hear your results!

      I refrigerate for about 5 days – and if I know I won’t be using it for longer than that – I freeze it in ice cube trays with great results. The leftover is really good in smoothies too, fyi! :)
