A healthy twist on traditional pudding. The butternut squash adds a little sweetness and creamy texture to this scrumptious pudding. The squash is rich in vitamin A and C, both of which promote good health. When serving, just add some berries or coconut cream. Dairy free option included.


  • ½ small butternut squash seeds removed
  • 2 cups (500 mL) full-fat organic milk
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) gluten-free cornmeal
  • 1 ½ tsp (7.5 mL) gluten-free organic ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp (1.25 mL) sea salt
  • ½ cup (125 mL) raisins (preferably sulfite free)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) pure vanilla
