  • In a small saucepan, add milk. Sprinkle gelatin over the top and let sit 5 minutes without stirring.
  • Transfer saucepan to a stove and heat over medium-low flame. Slowly heat the gelatin mixture, stirring frequently, until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, at least 15 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, add gelatin mixture and both boxes of pudding mix. Whisk vigorously until pudding has dissolved and the mixture is smooth. In a second bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Fold in pumpkin mixture into gelatin mixture until evenly incorporated. Scrape into graham cracker crust and smooth the top. Chill until firm, at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve with whipped cream if desired.


  1. Gelatin: Look for envelopes (not sheets) such as Knox brand unflavored gelatin. The two types of gelatin are usually interchangeable, but this recipe hasn't been tested with gelatin sheets so I don't know for sure.
  2. Instant pudding: Do not substitute Cook and Serve pudding.
  3. Pumpkin pie spice: Or substitute 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
  4. Graham cracker crust: For ease and simplicity, I use a store-bought crust here. You can absolutely make your own graham cracker crust with crushed graham crackers, butter, and powered sugar. It's delicious!
  5. Yield: This 9-inch No Bake Pumpkin Pie makes about 8 slices of pumpkin pie, more or fewer depending on how you slice them.
  6. Storage: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
