Sharing is caring!

I love anything pumpkin.  The past two months I have been going a bit crazy with using it in everything from breakfast oatmeal to stirring it into a big bowl of mac and cheese.  This recipe for Creamy No Cook Pumpkin Mousse came about one evening when I needed something to feed my sweet tooth.  With not many options I turned to a recipe that I make in the summer my no-bake strawberry cheesecakes.  I always have a stash of pumpkin in the cupboard and decided to take that recipe and making it taste like autumn.

I was telling a friend about my creation and she tried to talk me into making it a keto recipe but, to be honest with you when I want a little sweet in my life the last thing I want to use is an unnatural sweetener.  Yes, I know Stevia is derived from a plant but it also tastes like sucking on a dirty penny.

When I started changing our diet, even more, I started researching natural sweeteners that actually tasted good and are less processed.  A recent favorite has become sucanat.  Have you heard of it or used it?  Sucanat is the least refined cane sugar outside of nibbling on a cane stalk.  It is crushed, the juices are extracted, and then it is heated creating a rich dark syrup.  It tastes similar to molasses but not as strong.  It definitely adds some oomph to this creamy pumpkin mousse.  Feel free to use regular sugar too.

I have made this a few times and have used only cream cheese as well as mascarpone cheese as below.  Personally, I like the tanginess that the mascarpone adds to the recipe.  When made with only cream cheese the recipe will taste more like cheesecake and will be a bit thicker.  Make both ways and then you decide which you enjoy more.
