With a simple substitution for gelatin, a vegetarian Pumpkin Pie Jello shot is easy to make and just as tasty as Grandma's pumpkin pie. Who knows? Maybe her secret ingredient has been rum all along.

  • Servings: About 10

Ingredients:

White Layer
1 Small (5.6 Oz) Can Coconut Milk
½ cup Water
¼ cup Sugar
3 tsp Agar-agar
¼ tsp Arrowroot Powder
Pumpkin Layer
½ cup Water
½ cup Sugar
6 tsp Agar-agar
½ tsp Arrowroot Powder
½ cup Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
½ cup Spiced Rum
Graham Cracker Layer
2 Sheets Graham Cracker
1 Tbsp Margarine

Directions:

White Layer: Combine coconut milk, water, sugar, agar-agar, and arrowroot powder in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low setting until liquid begins to boil. Remove from heat. Pour liquid into shot glasses and refrigerate until set.

Pumpkin Layer: Combine water, sugar, agar-agar, and arrowroot powder in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low setting until liquid begins to boil. Remove from heat and stir in pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and spiced rum. Pour pumpkin layer over set white layer and refrigerate.

Graham Cracker Layer: Crush or blend graham crackers to form crumbs. Melt margarine. Combine graham cracker crumbs and margarine. Garnish each shot glass with a spoonful of graham cracker crumb mixture.

Helpful Tips:

The key to a successful vegetarian/vegan Jello shot is finding the right substitution for gelatin. For this recipe we used Agar Agar powder, which is derived from red algae and found in most Asian grocery stores.
