My son can't do eggs, either, so I'm looking for something dessert-y that has a distinct pumpkin taste. You can email me directly if you want! I tried adding some pumpkin to cooked vanilla pudding (not the instant) and that actually wasn't too awful -- but I know you guys are better cooks than I.

thanks!

Pumpkin Ice Cream - if you have an ice cream maker... I just simmered down almond milk with canned pumpkin (about half a cup pumpkin to four cups almond milk), with a bit of sugar and pumpkin pie spice, cooled the mixture, then followed my ice cream maker's instructions.

Pumpkin Rice Pudding - use regular vanilla rice pudding recipes, but substitute some of the liquid with pumpkin puree

Pumpkin Pie - you can make pumpking pie without eggs (you'll want to google for recipes), I think you use extra xanthum gum, or something like that)

Pumpkin Smoothies - mix milk/milk-sub, a banana, some canned pumpkin (maybe a quarter cup), cinnamon, vanilla, and some ice cubes in a blender.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies - use a standard gluten-free spice cookie recipe (you can google for one, or find one in a cookbook), and substitute canned pumpkin for some of the liquid

I am brand new at this, so here is what I have to offer:

I went to Whole Foods Market today to get gluten free stuff and they had a Pumpkin Mouse that was amazing!!! BUT....it had tofu in it, is that gluten free?? I know that there were no eggs, because it was a vegan recipie, so maybe you can see if you have a Whole Foods Market around, or if they have that recipie online. I bought a pound of that mouse, and now I am worried about the tofu! I didn't even think about what that was made of! Oh my, time to do some research.....

I have a good no-bake pumpkin pie recipe that I have adapted to be gluten-free, egg-free, milk-free and soy-free. (I can handle butter, so I use that in the crust.)

Crust: I follow a regular pie crust recipe, just substitute my gluten-free flour. Bake the crust according to the cookbook directions. Cool completely before trying to fill.

Filling: 1-1/4 C Milk (Rice milk, goat milk...)

1-1/2 Envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin

2/3 C Maple Syrup

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1/4 tsp. Ginger

1/4 tsp. Nutmeg

1/2 tsp. Salt

1-16 oz. Can Pumpkin

Sprinkle gelatin over milk in saucepan. Let stand 1 minute to soften. Stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves - about 2 minutes. Add maple syrup and spices and continue stirring for 1-2 more minutes. Blend in pumpkin, cook/stir 2 additional minutes. Cool almost completely. Before it sets up, pour into pie shell. Chill at least 3 hours before serving.

I usually double this. I have to fight to keep my family out of it. It has the consistency of something between regular pumpkin pie and jello, but the taste is great.

Good luck!

Liz

Thanks so much -- we do have pumpkin smoothies already, but I will try ALL these ideas (pumpkin is so good for you!). We don't have a Whole Foods here, but I keep my fingers crossed!!

I recently made great gluten-free pumpkin bread using Pamela's Products baking mix and the recipe on Pamela's website. It was really good. My non-celiac mom made the same recipe for my celiac dad and she even said it was really good.

The recipe calls for one egg and that's what I used when I made it before. I'm also allergic to eggs (but can usually eat things with just one egg that's baked into it as long as its not a primary ingredient or semi-raw -- weird, I know) and I plan to try the bread next time with egg replacer since I had a slight reaction. If I do, I'll post how it turned out.

Tofu is gluten free, but it is soy, so if youhave an intolerance to soy, no tofu--I cant have tofu. Deb

I was at Giant yesterday and there was a big display of Jello Instant pudding that was pumpkin flavored! And a recipe pad attached with directions for a cool-whip cookie-crumb pumpkin pie! I was so excited I wrote them an email, but I still will spend tomorrow turning out all these pumpkin ideas...
