Recipe: Healthy Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

Dessert Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

You know we love pumpkin at Get Healthy U and now we’ve made a pumpkin pie in a mug that can be ready in 5 minutes! That’s right, there’s no pie dough to roll out, no waiting while it bakes in the oven; it’s as simple as mixing ingredients in a mug and popping it in the microwave. Plus it’s totally gluten and dairy free!

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 serving(s)


  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 teaspoon coconut condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • Optional
  • Whip cream
  • Graham Cracker Crumbles, sprinkled on top


  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe mug and stir well.
  2. Microwave on high 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Top with whip cream and an additional sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Freeze the milk in ice cubes trays and use it later in other recipes .

Wow. Delicious! I substituted Sweetened condensed milk for the Coconut milk as I couldn’t find. Yummy!

Coconut condensed milk? Or just coconut milk?

    I have only tried this with coconut condensed milk. It may work with coconut milk (let me know if you try it) but I worry that the consistencies are little different so I am not sure if you can replace condensed milk with regular milk.

If I used almond milk, would it be the 'standard' kind in a carton or is 'condensed' a key word in the recipe?

Can you use regular milk?

Made it. It was tasty, but didn't care for all the trouble. Finally found the coconut condensed milk, but it wasn't cheap. Now I have to look for other recipes to use the rest of the milk. (I don't mind doing that. Might make the pie in a mug again since I have all the ingredients now. Ha!)

Is there a substitute for coconut milk? Not a fan.
