Paleo Pumpkin Mousse

I made a pumpkin pie for Chase last week and decided I wanted to try to make a paleo equivalent. However, I did not want to have to deal with making a gluten-free paleo crusts—so I decided pumpkin mousse was on the docket.

I had refrigerated a can of coconut milk overnight.

I then scooped out the coconut milk that had solidified into cream and added ½ cup of canned pumpkin.

I then added about ¼ cup of granulated sugar:

And ¼ cup of brown sugar:

(Thank you, Aunt Patty, for my adorably festive bowl!)

The most important addition was ½ tsp cinnamon:

Then I whipped in the kitchen aid for about 1 minute:

I stored it in the fridge and had it as a lovely little paleo treat!

This was very delicious!


Do you like pumpkin? What is your favorite quick and easy dessert?
