Easy, light and delicious pumpkin mousse recipe with graham crackers and yogurt. Great dessert for parties or any other time!
Lately, I can see pumpkin everywhere…. in the store, on the web…. in my kitchen. Basically wherever I look I see pumpkin. I haven’t posted a pumpkin recipe this fall yet because I was focusing on butternut squash. I wanted to experiment with this type of veggie. This autumn I baked Butternut Squash Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Bars and Butternut Squash Coconut Donuts. I liked them so much. If you want to incorporate more veggies in your child’s diet start baking with veggies. I honestly can tell you my children don’t even realize there is pumpkin, butternut squash or spinach.
However, I don’t really have problems with my older son. He likes veggies and he eats them. But my younger son eats only cucumbers and corn. Recently, he started to eat beets. And this is all from veggies that he eats. That’s why I was forced to figure it out another way for him to eat veggies. He loves my baked desserts and he eats them so quickly. Pumpkin mousse, butternut squash donuts, green crepes. He eats them and I am happy.
Ok, maybe let’s talk about my easy pumpkin mousse. So after playing around with butternut squash I had to develop new pumpkin recipes. I had some leftover yogurt in my fridge and I thought that I should make quick, easy and light dessert. Maybe not so light, but it is not so heavy either. Therefore, I mixed the greek yogurt with pumpkin puree, spices and truwhip. I usually find it in organic stores and I like it. If you can’t buy truwhip you can simply use cool whip. Either way is fine, however truwhip is healthier. And I tend to choose healthier variety of products.

Yum! This looks fantastic! And your son eats beets?! That’s amazing!!! And if he eats the peel on the cucumbers too, he’s getting some nutrition!! This recipe looks perfect for a late night sweet treat after that big Thanksgiving meal!
Yes he eats beets, I am so happy about it. Maybe someday he’ll eat more veggies. My wish… Thanks Amanda!
I love this recipe because it fits in with the holidays and it seems to be light!
That’s right perfect for holidays! Thank you!
What a great way to use pumpkin and love the addition of yogurt. Beets are really good for you so at least he is eating them. I’ve kind of been experimenting with butternut squash a lot lately also.
I love butternut squash lately. Thanks Stephanie!

Ooo I bet this would be awesome layered with oatmeal too! At least your son’s eating some veggies? My mother still moans about how the only veg I would eat was peas and potatoes!
Yes, he is eating but not much. Peas? That’s perfect! Many children don’t like peas. Thanks Luci for your visit to my blog!

This sounds so good and your photos are beautiful. I love individual serving desserts for fancy dinners and holidays – something about it just seems so special compared to bringing out a whole pie and slicing away.
Totally agree Julie!
