Silk Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding Recipe #SilkHoliday

My son and I are both lactose sensitive. While we don’t often let that stop us from enjoying our favorite foods, I do try to make them without adding unnecessary milk. That’s where Silk comes into the picture. We both enjoy drinking Silk products in smoothies and on their own — especially the Chocolate Silk, Mmm! I had never thought to use Silk products in my cooking and baking before though!

When I learned about the Silk Holiday Recipe Contest, I knew I had to start using Silk in my recipes. I am so pleased with how my first experiment turned out!

Combining my love of Pumpkin Pie and bread Pudding, I decided to put the two together and see what happened. Replacing the milk with Very Vanilla Silk was a delicious way to make this Holiday favorite a painless treat for sensitive tummies.


And, it worked. Oh my, this Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding is delicious! I loved it warm out of the oven but my favorite way to eat it is after a night in the fridge. All of the flavors meld together and the croissants turn into this rich buttery goodness that is surrounded by Pumpkin Pie custard… Heaven!

Dare I say, I may even like it better than regular old Pumpkin Pie – gasp! I’m even debating serving this recipe instead of Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving this year! What do you think?
