Pumpkin Pie Mousse

Everyone knows that one of the best parts of the fall season is the pumpkin pie. If you don’t know this, then you must be living under a rock (my sister is living under a rock; she hates pumpkin pie).
Since I don’t count pie crust among my closest friends, I’ve come up with a slightly unconventional way to enjoy my pumpkin pie: Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl (a.k.a. Pumpkin Pie Mousse).

Little Pumpkin Pie Mousse
(serves two)

1 cup canned pumpkin (such as Libby’s)
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup milk of choice
4 ice cubes, optional
sweetener of choice, to taste

Whip it all up in the blender (I love you, Vitamix!) for a loooong time.

Other, non pumpkin-related news:

Anyone catch the debate last night? I know that the political analysts are saying Sarah Palin “won” due to the fact that she didn’t self-combust. But I thought Joe Biden was absolutely amazing! What an eloquent guy!

    I’ve been waiting for you to post this! 🙂 Yummy!
    I enjoyed the debate. Joe Biden took Palin down. I love him.

  2. jessy says

    this looks fantastic, CCV! thanks so much for sharing another one of your rock’n recipes! fall yumminess, indeed! yay!

  3. River says

    Complete deliciousness in a bowl! It looks so creamy and “pumpkiny”!

    I watched the debate and thought Biden seems like a very “human” guy.

  4. Ruby Red Vegan says

    Yes, yes, yes! Pumpkin pie is the best part of fall! This mousse sounds yummy…darn on me for finishing off the last of my pumpkin this morning.

    I started tuning in to the debate after the Dick Cheney reference (I read the transcript of that part though), but the fact that Sarah Palin was so composed was definitely impressive. She seems like a smart, smart lady. I just don’t think Joe Biden is as good of a speaker…but that doesn’t necessarily mean he wouldn’t be a good VP. I still haven’t made final decisions about my vote yet…

    Genius! Simple and easy to make… will make as soon as I get my hands on some pumpkin! mmm!

    got to agree with you on the debates–though Palin did surprise me.

    I LOVE pumpkin pie. I was surrounded by haters, though–so I snuck it onto their plates without telling them what it is. Once they tasted it, they loved it too. Psychology is amazing, eh?

    Oh man, I must be living under a rock! I’ve never had pumpkin pie in my life although we did make a kumara (sweet potato) pie once which was mighty fine. But then again it isn’t fall here so perhaps I can be forgiven?!

  8. Sanja says

    It looks like the pumpkin smoothie I made a lot last year. I’m just cray about pumpkins. And addicted. So if you have any more pumpkin ideas… 🙂

  9. Bianca says

    I still can’t believe you don’t like crust! But that’s okay. The mousse sounds fantastic. Almost like pumpkin pudding!

  10. Andrea says

    pie crust is not one of my closest friends either 😉 but pumpkin pie mousse sounds like it could be haha!! i need to try this! i loved kath’s pumpkin pie ‘crustless’ recipes so i will definitely give yours a try too!

  11. Andrea says

    oooh and i totally agree with you about the debate… i thought palin did reasonably well (no major screw ups) but she did seem kinda nervous and rehearsed whereas biden seemed so real and knowledgable! i was hoping she’d make a mistake because i love the tina fey SNL skits on palin hehe

  12. CeciLiA says

    Can you believe that I never EVER ate pumpkin pie before in my LIFE?!!!! I guess I live under a rock too 😀

    Yes, Vitamix is awesome eh?!!! The place where I work at has Vitamix blenders to make frappes and smoothies and I have been bringing my own frozen fruits to work to make myself some DUH-LICIOUS smoothie yummmmmmm 🙂

  13. Simple and Divine says

    This looks increddddible, Twinnie! And you MUST post your pumpkin pie recipe, too!!! -PS- I’ve been eating so much pumpkin recently that my hands are turning ORANGE! Eeeep!

    And I thought Biden was BEYOND brilliant. He is SO eloquent and just so knowledgeable and intelligent. He’s ma MANE. 🙂 (-ps- He most def dominated what’sherface)

  14. Veg-a-Nut says

    I am so happy it is pumpking time. I know we can have it pretty much anytime we want, but hey it is tradition! Pumpking mousse, pumpkin pie, oh my! Your sister just doesn’t know what she is missing.

    We watched the debate too, but who I did not care for was the mediator. This election should be an exciting and eye opening one.

  15. ChickPea says

    Oh my goodness! Another Katie concoction to try…I can’t wait. I usually make pumpkin pudding for the holidays, but mousse takes it to another level of decadence!
