Gluten Free Almost Instant Pumpkin Mousse Recipe

Post image for Gluten Free Almost Instant Pumpkin Mousse Recipe Tis the season for all things pumpkin; every store I walk into these days reminds me of a pumpkin patch at harvest time.

There are many in our family that regards pumpkin as a favorite flavor. In fact recently we had four generations all seated around the table discussing the attributes of pumpkin pie. My g-kid Julian is a big fan and always requests it for dessert.

Unfortunately I don’t always have time to whip up a gluten free pumpkin pie. But I do always have time to whip up this tasty dessert – Almost Instant Pumpkin Mousse. This recipe takes about 5 minutes to prepare and really could not be simpler.

With a can of pumpkin puree, a container of Solo Marshmallow Creme, a bit of water and some spices, this mousse is a fabulous alternative when baking a pie is just out of the question.

If you really must have pie, you can simply pour this filling into a crust made of gluten free graham cracker crumbs or nuts and voila – Almost instant pumpkin pie!

The mousse itself is dairy-free but for those of you who can have dairy; this mousse is particularly wonderful served with a dollop of whip cream.

Is there another marshmallow Creme that would work if I can’t find the Solo brand one? Marshmallow fluff?

I am sure they are the same – should work just fine.

Can I use pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg? If so, do you know how much to use?

Hi Lisa, sure. I would use about 1 1/2 teaspoons. Enjoy.
