I love making no bake desserts. They’re one of the only ways I really want to be in the kitchen when there are so many other things going on. The holidays are no exception.

When Thanksgiving rolls around and there are tons of recipes to be prepped and cooked, baked and basted, I’m tapped out by the time desserts are involved. No bake sweet treats like this pumpkin pudding are a lifesaver!

Everyone devours these delicious puddings and they can be built in individual servings so that everyone can just grab one and go sit down to enjoy it while chatting after dinner. You can also prepare this in one big dish if you like and serve it that way.

I think it looks much more beautiful layered individually but it is a little bit more work to do it this way. If you want to just layer it in a bigger bowl and serve it by scooping it out into bowls, that’s totally fine as well!

If you haven’t tried out Cinnamon Whipped Cream Topping it goes great on top of this pumpkin pudding so be sure to give that a try if you have some extra time!

What do I need to make no bake pumpkin pudding?

This recipe uses cinnamon graham crackers, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree, milk, cream cheese, vanilla, whipped topping, and some small containers. 

You can use vanilla pudding mix with some pumpkin pie spice added, 1 tablespoon in each batch of vanilla pudding will do the trick.

You can also use gluten free graham crackers if you want to make this layered dessert gluten free! Everything else, apart from the graham crackers, should be gluten free naturally but just keep an eye on your labels.

I also remind people to check because brands switch things up all the time, I know most of you who eat gluten free already check everything religiously because it is not fun to find out you missed something!

Kitchen essentials for tasty no bake recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

I like these casserole dishes from Pyrex which are great for no bake recipes and for all your favorite dinners, brownies, cakes, and more.

You can’t go wrong with some good sharp knives and a cutting board. They will always come in handy in the kitchen for recipes of any kind, even desserts!
