Paleo Pumpkin Custard Recipe: Pumpkin Season Never Has to End…Right?

Paleo Pumpkin Custard | @VeggieConverter

Maybe you don’t know this, but I LOVE pumpkin. My husband’s not a huge fan. But when he tasted this, he went in for seconds! Of pumpkin! WHAT? So, I knew it was a hit. And, in spite of pumpkin season being long over, we’ve made it twice since. Love, love, love it. And all the kids love it, too (ours and a friend’s boys). It’s so simple you won’t believe it and it is incredibly delicious. Plus, since it’s pretty much pumpkin pie without the crust and processed sugar, it’s pretty healthy, too!


Paleo Pumpkin Custard

Serves 12

30 ounces pumpkin puree
4 eggs
15 ounces full-fat coconut milk (or evaporated milk)
1 cup honey
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup sucanat
1/2 cup crushed pecans or walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Put everything up to sea salt in your stand mixer and mix away!

Pour into ramekins (about 12, 6 ounce). Top with remaining ingredients.  Bake at 350 F about 30-40 minutes or until set and bruleed a bit on the top.

You can check with a knife, if it comes out clean your custard is set.

This was a absolutely HUGE hit with guests, adults and kids. I’ve made it twice more (once messing it up because I tried to thicken thin milk…sigh) and we just love it. What’s your favorite dessert? Now that I can’t have gluten and Goose can’t have dairy, this fantastic pumpkin custard might just be mine!

If you love the recipe, Pin it please!

    Alas, pumpkin season has ended at my both my grocery store and near by Whole Foods. Can I substitute Sweet Potato Puree for the pumpkin puree?

    • says

      That’s crazy! We still have pumpkins all over. But yes, I think sweet potato puree or, if you can find a butternut squash, that would work great!

    Thanks!! We have canned pumpkin (not puree) or pumpkin pie filling (definitely NOT). No whole pumpkins and I didn’t consider that anyway. So when you said 32 oz pumpkin puree, I assumed it came in a can and Whole Foods does carry it in the fall and holiday season. So, we will see how it goes!! Thanks again. I’m making it tomorrow.
