Combine pumpkin, broth, apple, shallots, ginger, garlic, curry powder, salt, and red pepper in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until vegetables are very tender, about 7 hours. Stir in 1 cup coconut milk and lime juice.
Place half of pumpkin mixture in a blender; remove center piece of lid to allow steam to escape. Secure lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid to avoid splatters; process until smooth. Place soup in a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining pumpkin mixture.
Divide soup evenly among 4 bowls. Swirl 1 teaspoon coconut milk into each serving; garnish with pepitas and additional red pepper.
