    This looks really good. Did you make it with the vegan version yet? Just wondered if it set up as nicely with the flax. Did you grind the seeds first?

    Amara, No, I have not tried the vegan version yet, but ground flax seed + water has worked great as an egg substitute in every other recipe I’ve tried with it.

    this is on my list. you pureed the kabocha?

    Clare, I simply dumped all the ingredients in my Vita-Mix and pureed everything together. If you don’t have a Vita, I would puree the squash first in a blender or food processor and then add other ingredients. Let me know how you like it. Another reader made it with almond milk. Just had to bake it 10 to 15 minutes longer. She said it was excellent.

    I made this with a can of pumpkin, flax and added some Abu to the mix. Awesome!

    Ashley, Glad you enjoyed. I was going to originally make it with canned pumpkin, but every store was sold out. So, I subbed kabocha. However, still want to try it with pumpkin. Your version sounds yummy.

    I’ve finally made this after meaning to for ages and it’s possibly the best pudding ever!

    I was going to use normal milk but tried the coconut and was very glad I did; thank you so much for the recipe!
