I’ve already confessed I’m not the world’s biggest pumpkin fan, and now I’ve shared Almond Flour Pumpkin Muffins and this Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pudding in the same week! I hope I’m earning some points with the pumpkin fans, and if you’re someone who loves desserts with pumpkin, you’re going to want to try this tasty pudding that’s easy enough to make in about 15 minutes. Kara and I both scarfed this down when we tested the recipe and it was a hit with her family when she gave them the leftovers too!

This recipe was adapted from a pumpkin pudding recipe I stumbled across on a blog that’s no longer being updated. The original version combined pumpkin puree with sugar-free vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin spice, and evaporated milk. I bumped up some of the ingredients a bit, using sugar-free cheesecake pudding, heavy cream, and just a bit of my favorite Golden Monkfruit Sweetener with the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Just combine five ingredients, whisk together and chill! You decide whether or not to add some whipped cream on top for this easy pumpkin dessert that would be fun to make for Halloween!

If you're looking for an idea for an easy treat made with pumpkin, this Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pudding is about as easy as it gets, and this is so tasty!

Ingredients

  • one 15 oz. can pure pumpkin puree
  • two 1 oz. packages Jello Instant Sugar-Free Cheesecake Pudding and Pie Filling (see notes)
  •  16 oz heavy cream (see notes)
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin Spice Mix
  • 2 T Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (see notes)

Instructions

  1. Put pumpkin puree, heavy cream (or use half and half or milk if you prefer), Golden Monkfruit Sweetener or your favorite sweetener, Jello Instant Sugar-Free Cheesecake Pudding and Pie Filling and pumpkin spice mix into a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix all ingredients with a heavy whisk until everything is well combined.
  3. The mixture will be stiff. You can add a bit more cream if you prefer a thinner pudding.
  4. Divide pudding into eight serving containers and chill for a few hours.
  5. Serve topped with a little whipped cream if desired and enjoy!

Notes

Some stores will have the larger size package of Jello Instant Sugar-Free Cheesecake Pudding and Pie Filling (affiliate link) and if you find that size you'll only need one box. You can also make this with Jello Sugar-Free Vanilla Instant Pudding if that sounds better or you can't find the cheesecake flavor.

You can use heavy cream, half and half, or milk, whichever you prefer. Use a bit more if you'd like a thinner pudding that makes a few more servings.

I love Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) for the brown-sugar flavor it adds to desserts, but use any sweetener you prefer if you don't have that.

Low-Carb Diet / Low- Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Using heavy cream, Monkfruit Sweetener, and sugar-free Jello Pudding makes this Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pudding a pretty good option as a treat for low-carb diet plans. (Pumpkin does have some carbs and so does the Jello cheesecake mix, the total net carbs are 9.4. This was previously calculated incorrectly by the program that calculates nutritional information; I apologize for that mistake and have removed the tag for Keto.) If you want to make this for phase two for the original South Beach Diet, they would recommend using reduced-fat dairy. Celiac.com says that Jello Sugar-Pudding Mix is gluten-free, but check the ingredients to be sure it works for you if you need gluten-free.

  1. So i used 2 packets stevia instead of monk fruit. I also need more than 16 oz cream too thick!. And i only used half can pumpkin(it has 10 g carbs and i donr need all the added. Just enough to taste. ). Also used vanilla sugar free pudding!! I will make this again! Ir is sooo yummy when watching carbs.

  2. Not sure if I’m missing something but I’m wondering how you calculate the nutritional information. The pudding mix package says 5g of carbs and 0g of fibre per serving, so 20g per 4 serving box (2 x 20 = 40g of carbs). Pumpkin purée has 18g of carbs and 5g of fibre so 13g net carbs per can (2 x 13 = 26g net carbs). Heavy cream comes in at 6.5g of carbs with no fibre per cup (2 x 6.5 = 13g carbs) Total net carbs in the recipe equals 79g. At 8 servings this works out to 10g of net carbs not 5.5. 

    • I use a program that calculates it, and I’m not home so I can’t look at the ingredients I used to check on it. I will double check with the ingredients I used when I get back home, but possibly not until sometime tomorrow.

      • I am so sorry (and frustrated) that this was indeed calculated incorrectly by the program that’s built into my recipe card. I did each ingredient separately (based on what was on the package or using the internet for heavy cream) and I didn’t get exactly what you did. I was wondering if you were calculating with two cans of pumpkin? But the total carbs came out to 10.9 per serving minus 1.5 grams fiber for 9.4 net carbs per serving.

        I have edited the post, and again I apologize for the mistake. I am guessing that the Sugar-Free Cheesecake Mix wasn’t recognized by my carb calculator because when I did that separately it came out wrong. I should have caught it, but obviously I didn’t. THANK YOU so much for telling me. And I have removed the tag for Keto for this recipe.

    • Thanks for looking into this!

      • No problem, I am sad it was wrong, and a bit mad at my nutritional information calculator. I can’t think of anything I could have done to make it come out wrong.

  3. If the sugar free pudding has artificial sugar in it why you add more sugar

    • Because you’re using a can of pumpkin that’s not sweetened. We didn’t think it was too sweet but you can use less sweetener if you prefer.

  4. hello,
    sugar free pumpkin pudding – what is pumpkin spice mix?

    • There is a link in the post to see the product on Amazon.com. It’s a mixture of spices first used in pumpkin pie, but now popular for lots of recipes. Sometimes it might be called Pumpkin Pie Spice. Most any store in the U.S. will have it, or you could google for a recipe if you want to see the individual ingredients.
