Gluten Free Instant Pumpkin Mousse

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 who regard 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 – Gluten Free 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 whipped 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.

    I have a bubble ring I have prepared for years at Christmas but due to gluten intolerences in myself, daughter, and granddaughter will not be able to prepare this family tradition. What flour would you recommend I use in place of wheat flour used in the past, so that we may enjoy this tradition this year?

    1. Carol Kicinski

      I’d say, use an all purpose flour blend like the one we offer on the flour page ( https://simplygluten-free.com/carols-all-purpose-flour ), because it is relatively fine compared to brown rice or white rice flour or anything else.
      You want to stay away from super grainy flours.
      I hope this helps you to carry on that yearly tradition Brenda!

      xo,

      Oh, wow! So sorry about that. The values were inputted incorrectly to our nutrition facts calculator. I’ve fixed it.
