This breakfast pumpkin custard smells like pumpkin pie and applesauce but is made almost entirely of vegetables. Add in some bananas or chopped dates and you have a delicious dish.

Here’s a few tips for making the BEST breakfast pumpkin custard:

  • This custard can be eaten alone or as a topping to a juicy pork chop.
  • You can serve the custard with optional toppings like raisins, chopped dates, sliced bananas, or a dollop of coconut cream.
  • This doesn’t need to be super smooth. It tastes good even if it’s a little chunky.
  • This recipe tastes best warm. Either right out of the Instant Pot or reheated.

Serves: 4 cups
  1. Add all of the ingredients except for the gelatin to the Instant Pot.
  2. Put the top on the Instant Pot and set to pressure cook for 3 minutes. Take care to set the knob to the sealing position.
  3. Once it’s finished cooking, allow the Instant Pot to depressurize (slow release). After about 10 minutes, the floating valve or red metal pin should drop, then open the lid.
  4. Add in the gelatin using an immersion blender, blend the cauliflower mixture until smooth.

    Hey, would this work in a crockpot? I don’t have an instapot.
    Also, do you know a good sub for banana? As I don’t tolerate them.

    Thanks! 😊

      I also would like to know how to make this conventionally (without an Instant). Looks great!

  • Laura Steenson says

    Hi! I am confused about the gelatin. Is it supposed to bloom, then be mixed in? Or just added for protein and all the other good stuff? If the latter, could it be replaced with collagen peptides? Thanks!

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Laura! It sounds like Beth has you add the gelatin in while the mixture is cooling, and used this way will definitely add texture. I would not try substituting collagen peptides as it doesn’t have the same binding effect. Hope it helps!
