Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse – Budget Bytes


$2.28 recipe / $zero.57 serving

Two weeks in the past we had a chilly spell and I used to be all like, “I’M READY FOR PUMPKIN!” I purchased mini pumpkins to embellish my kitchen, I purchased some fall scented candles, and watched pumpkin every part blow up on social media. Fast ahead to right now and, regardless of not even having reached October, I’m already over pumpkin. That being stated, I’ve to do at the least one pumpkin recipe yearly, so I’m going to do it now and get it over with. This is the final time you’ll hear me discuss pumpkin this 12 months ( <— complete lie). I’m normally a fan of savory pumpkin recipes extra so than sweets, however I simply occurred to have all of the components for this Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse readily available, in order that’s what I whipped up right now. Zero regrets, guys. ZERO.

This tremendous gentle and fluffy Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse may be eaten a number of other ways. You can use it as a dip for graham crackers, apple slices, or cinnamon pita crisps, you can also make it right into a parfait by layering it in a jar with crushed cinnamon graham crackers, or you’ll be able to simply say, “to hell with it” and serve it with a spoon and a facet of Netflix. While the primary two choices make the prettiest presentation, the final choice might be my favourite.

Canned pumpkin/strong pack pumpkin varies rather a lot in value from 12 months to 12 months relying on how good the harvest is, however I noticed the generic Kroger model priced at $zero.99 per can the opposite day! So in case you’re in an space that has Kroger shops, get ye to Kroger and replenish whereas it’s low-cost!

P.S. I’ll have the recipe for these selfmade cinnamon pita crisps for you tomorrow! 😀

Whipped Cream

Begin by whipping 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 Tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract till stiff peaks kind. I like to attend till the cream begins to thicken a bit earlier than including the sugar and vanilla. If you’ve by no means whipped cream earlier than, “stiff peaks” implies that whenever you elevate the beaters out of the cream, the little peaks which might be left within the bowl stand upright and don’t stoop over. Be cautious to not over beat the cream, although, as a result of it may possibly start to interrupt down and separate.

Cream Cheese Pumpkin and Spices

In a separate bowl, mix four oz. room temperature cream cheese, 1 cup pumpkin purée, 2 Tbsp sugar, half tsp cinnamon, 1/eight tsp floor cloves, and 1/eight tsp floor nutmeg. 

Creamed Cheese and Pumpkin

Beat the cream cheese, pumpkin, sugar, and spices collectively till they’re clean and no lumps of cream cheese stay (for this reason it’s vital to make use of room temperature cream cheese).

Fold Pumpkin and Whipped Cream 1

Take a hefty scoop of the whipped cream and add that to the pumpkin combination. Fold them collectively to present the pumpkin combination some lightness.

Now take 1/three of that lightened pumpkin combination and fold it into the bowl with the remainder of the whipped cream. Make certain to not stir vigorously otherwise you danger deflating your whipped cream. Just fold gently and watch the gorgeous swirls of orange and white.

Fold Pumpkin and Whipped Cream 3

Repeat that two extra instances till all the pumpkin combination has been folded into the whipped cream. And that’s it! The Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse is able to eat!

And whereas it actually is nice with these Cinnamon Pita Crisps, simply give me a spoon already. It was REALLY onerous to not simply eat all of it straight away, however I feel I prefer it much more after chilling a bit!
