Creamy Instant Pumpkin Mousse

By Ms. Lizz

Pumpkin is not only a holiday tradition but a nutrition superstar, packed with tons of potassium, beta carotene and fiber. Butterscotch sugar-free pudding adds sweetness and great flavor to this quick and easy, low sugar dessert. A single gingersnap thin would make a great garnish.

This is an awesome recipe and is just right for a holiday table. I'm going to write and ask where to get the pumpkin puree. I have never seen it before. This is something I am looking forward to fixing.
