This creamy Pumpkin Mousse has all the seasonal flavor of a classic pumpkin pie while also being vegan and gluten-free. It’s incredibly fluffy, delicious, and easy to make!
It’s our opinion that the very best part of pumpkin pie is the filling (plus a dollop of whipped cream, of course!). Who else is a fan of filling? This delicious Pumpkin Mousse has all of that creamy, delicious pumpkin pie filling flavor that we love so much! It’s quickly become an autumn must-make in our kitchens and we think you’ll love it, too.
No-Bake Pumpkin Dessert Recipe
This recipe doesn’t have a crust and requires no oven time! Instead of a pie crust, we’ve combined dates, walnuts, and cinnamon. Once pulsed in the food processor they can be incorporated into the mousse in layers. This gives your dessert a really delicious texture and crunch throughout.
We made this recipe a little lighter by including a non-dairy coconut whipped topping! You could use a regular dairy whipped topping as well. These can be found in the frozen section of your supermarket.
Vegan Thanksgiving Dessert
This Pumpkin Pie Mousse would be a delicious vegan, gelatin-free, and gluten-free option for after Thanksgiving dinner. Serve it in individual mini cups a light and delicious sweet treat that will taste like pumpkin pie, but much quicker to make.
Making Pumpkin Mousse Ahead of Time
Our light and creamy Pumpkin mousse is a really great recipe to make ahead of time. Make the pumpkin mousse a couple of days ahead. Assemble it in layers the day you plan to serve it for dessert. Our recipe for Pumpkin Pie Mousse is a wonderful dish for entertaining because it’s so easy to make, serve, and enjoy!
