Creamy Pumpkin Pie mousse

If you are looking for a healthy creamy pumpkin pie mousse stop right there….

In Portugal, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but I must admit that I always had this fascination….When I think about it lots of beautiful pumpkin pies come suddenly to my mind and my eyes start to glow. So, today I felt like it was a pumpkin kind of day and I came up with a healthy pumpkin pie mousse.

This pumpkin pie mousse it’s no-bake and really creamy. I’m still quite indecisive of whether it’s a mousse or a pudding. Well, whatever…You only need to know that it just melts in your mouth and you can feel the crumbs and the chocolate sprinkles….It’s an open road that ends up with an intense classic flavour (I’m talking about the head topping- coconut sugar egg white cream).

This recipe is actually divided in four parts: crust, filling, extra filling and topping. However, don’t be scared. It’s really not that difficult to do…. Go ahead … get a sneak peek!
