  • Slow Cooker
  • Blender


  • 2 1/2 cups Pumpkin Purée or 15 ounce can (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt


  • Place all ingredients and stir until well combined. Cook on high for 4 hours. To prevent scorching, sticking and burning, stir every 90 minutes.
  • Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
  • Transfer to bowl to cool completely before covering (make sure it’s airtight) and store in refrigerator.


  • You’ll need a slow cooker or instant pot to make this recipe. If using a instant pot, you’ll just use the slow cooker function and leave the top off.
  • This is the instant pot and slow cooker I use.
  • Make sure you watch this towards the end to make sure that it doesn’t burn.
