Holiday Series: Vegan Pumpkin Mousse

I am not a fan of pumpkin pie, or cake but I am a fan of pudding or mousse alternative, so I feel like this year, we are going to have this vegan pumpkin mousse on our dessert table for thanksgiving.  So easy to make and naturally spoon right out of the blender. Okay, no I’ll do my best to scoop the masterpiece into serving bowls for a more civilized way of indulging.


  • 1 cup (225g) full fat coconut yogurt or coconut cream*
  • 1/2 cup (125g) pumpkin puree 
  • 1/4 cup (80g) maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt  {more}

On another healthier alternative to desserts – here’s a banana Chia pudding recipe – although this one I’m considering for breakfast come Sunday morning.
