Pumpkin Mousse – Favorite Family Recipes (Video)

Pumpkin, pumpkin, everywhere!  I love this time of year, because I get back to baking, and everything smells SO wonderful!!  First, if you’re looking for a pumpkin muffin recipe, click here.  If you’re in need of a wonderful autumn squash soup, click here.  Today’s recipe is a terrific dessert – a Pumpkin Mousse!!

This recipe comes from Favorite Family Recipes.  There are three bloggers, who are also sisters – Emily, Echo and Erica – and you can learn more about them here. It’s so nice to see sisters that not only get along with each other, but can actually work together!  I do not have any sisters, but if I did, I would hope we would be like these gals.  Lovely!!

Back to the recipe – it’s very easy to put together, and I’ll get right to it.  FYI – I used my Flex+ Multi-Prep Set for this recipe, info below:

Flex+ Multi-Prep Set

3 Cordless Prep Tools in One

Slicing, chopping, grating, pureeing, emulsifying, mixing, and blending doesn’t have to be time-consuming or frustrating. With the Flex+, you get three complete cordless, time-saving prep tools in one: an immersion blender, 6-cup (1.5-L) food processor, and a hand mixer, so you can quickly, effortlessly, and safely whip up whatever you’re making, anytime, anywhere.

Just click the power handle to one of the attachments, choose a blade (food processor) or beaters/whisks (hand mixer), pop on one of the batteries, and you’re ready to go. We’ve included two rechargeable batteries to give you about 60 minutes of total run time.

The power handle has push-button control for comfortable one-handed operation. Five speeds (three for the hand mixer) easily adjust during use for flexibility and control. Indicator lights show how much battery life is left and the speed you’re using. A safety lock prevents the Flex+ from accidentally turning on.

Immersion Blender

Big jobs or small, its slim size, stainless blade, and cookware-safe design means you control the texture of the foods you blend. You’ll enjoy smooth soups and gravies, and all kinds of sauces such as pesto, tomato, chimichurri, barbecue, dressings, marinades, mayonnaise, milkshakes, and smoothies. It includes a blending container to make homemade mayonnaise and dressings in under two minutes.

6-cup (1.5-L) Food Processor

Get fresh flavor in a flash without breaking a sweat. Choose one of the three blades based on what you’re making. The multiuse blade can cut foods to the size and texture you want, even purees. The grating blade is reversible so you can coarsely or finely grate fresh ingredients in no time. The slicing blade slices and shaves veggies for salads and sautés, potatoes and zucchini for gratins, and apples or any firm produce. (Please note, the slicing blade won’t slice cheese.)

Hand Mixer

A baker’s and breakfast maker’s best friend. Mix, beat, incorporate, and whip together eggs, batters, meringues, mashed potatoes, whipped cream, frothy egg whites, and more. Includes two beaters and two whisks.
