Sudbury ON

I am not a fan of pumpkin but I really like this mousse!
Recipe is from Flavor and Savor

This is so easy and so quick, no baking!

Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse
Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time  15 mins

A rich and creamy no-bake mousse, made with canned pumpkin, Greek yogurt, and sweetened with maple syrup. Top with caramel sauce for a special fall dessert.
I have cut this recipe in half easily.

Cuisine: American, Canadian, Gluten-Free
Servings: 8
Calories per serving: 296 kcal


8 oz reduced fat cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg
1/4 tsp each ground ginger and ground cloves
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups whipping cream (heavy cream)
2 tbsp icing sugar (to sweeten whipping cream) optional I don't like sugar in my whipping cream
1/4 cup caramel sauce, optional


Cut cream cheese into cubes, then add to a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until smooth. Add maple syrup, spices, pumpkin and Greek yogurt and continue beating until well blended and no lumps remain.

In a separate bowl with clean beaters, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. 
NOTE TO SELF: use mini Redmond immersion blender for a small amount of cream!
1 1/2 cups of whipping cream will yield up to 3 cups of whipped cream. Set aside 1 cup for garnishing finished desserts. Fold the remaining 2 cups into the pumpkin mixture.

Divide among 8 dessert dishes. Chill until set. Just before serving, add a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce, if desired.

Recipe Notes

When I made it the last time I put everything into the mixer when I realized I should have whipped the cream separately so I just left it beating and it turned out fine.
