Pumpkin Mousse Recipe
This smooth, silky and creamy Pumpkin Mousse Recipe makes a cool alternative Thanksgiving dessert to traditional pumpkin pie.
Servings 6 people
- 2 cups pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
- 3 cups heavy cream
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup graham crackers for garnishing
Combine pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Mix and allow to simmer.
Remove from heat and allow for the pumpkin mixture to cool down completely.
In a bowl, beat cream and vanilla until it forms semi-stiff peaks.
Fold pumpkin mixture into whipped cream.
Chill mousse in the fridge for about 1 hour and then use an electric beater to mix some more.
Garnish with graham crackers. Serve and enjoy!
This recipe yields 4-6 servings, but you can always put them in smaller cups if you have a larger crowd. Also, there is no whipped cream topping on this version, but I’m sure it would taste fantastic. You could use store bought whipped cream or your own recipe.
And finally, wait to garnish with the graham crackers until ready to serve so that they don’t get soggy!
