1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
2.25 cups pumpkin puree
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
12 oz Cool Whip, thawed
Stir together all ingredients except Cool Whip. Fold the Cool Whip into this mixture. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
You can make your own pumpkin pie spice mix by combining:
4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
At least the pumpkin part of this recipe is healthy, and what can I say, it's fluffy and delicious!
If you like pumpkin but this mousse recipe is just too icky for you to even consider trying, you should check out the pumpkin recipes Tammy shared on her blog the other day. I made the pumpkin oatmeal for breakfast (using regular milk, though, since I'm not vegan), and it was very tasty and filling. I am eager to try the pumpkin hummus.
