Pumpkin Mousse

November 6, 2023
Only 2 ingredients and 3 steps get you this easy and yummy dessert.






1 (29 to 30-ounce) can (3 cups) pumpkin pie filling
1 1/2 cups (354 ml) heavy whipping cream, cold

Optional garnishes:

1/4 cup prepared whipped cream
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
Ground cinnamon, for dusting
1 pinch sea salt flakes


  1. Strain the pumpkin pie filling:
    • Place a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and add the pumpkin pie filling to the strainer. Let the excess liquid drip off for 5 minutes.
    • Once it’s done draining, add the strained pie filling to a clean bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, whip the cream:
    • Add the whipping cream to a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Use an electric mixer with beater attachment(s) to whip to stiff peaks. When you remove a beater, the whipped cream should stand at a point without completely falling over. This will take a couple of minutes.
  3. Fold the mousse together:
    •  Add a couple of spoons of the whipped cream into the pumpkin pie filling and gently mix together until combined. This will loosen up the pumpkin mixture a bit.
    • Transfer the pumpkin pie filling to the whipped cream bowl and use a rubber spatula to gently fold them together just until combined. Be gentle to ensure you don’t knock the air out of the whipped cream.
  4.  Chill:
    • Spoon the mousse into individual serving dishes or one large dish. Place one on top of a kitchen towel spread out on the counter. Tap a few times to dislodge bubbles and help smooth the top. Repeat with the other dishes. If needed, smooth the top(s) with a spoon.
    • Cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. If desired, top with more whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon and serve.
