I had about 1 cup of butternut squash left and I needed to use it up. So I went to my handy bookmarks tab and searched....
This recipe caught my eye: butternut squash pudding. But it was a Saturday, I'd just woken up (at noon ;), and I didn't really feel like going all-out on a pudding. HOWEVER, I did have some packaged (I know; how can I admit that?!) vanilla instant pudding to use up. Thus, the idea for easy butternut squash pudding was born.
I made it in about two minutes flat. The pudding tasted, obviously, like butternut squash. It also tasted like butterscotch. Don't ask me why; I have no idea. I don't even know how to describe what butterscotch tastes like. But it was good. I got through about half of it in one sitting.
Also, it's bright orange. A positive thing, in my book.
Instant Butternut Squash Pudding
1 package vanilla instant pudding
1 cup milk (or substitute, as I did, 1/6 cup powdered milk and a bit less than 1 cup water)
1 cup butternut squash puree
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine!
You could also try this with vanilla cook-and-serve pudding. Let me know if you try it!
