Pumpkin Pie Mousse

I have no idea where my week has gone but I have been swamped running errands and going to cooking class last night. I will give you more details soon but for now I wanted to share a very quick recipe I whipped up this morning for breakfast. Here it is:

Pumpkin Pie Mousse
Serves 2


½ cup raw cashews soaked in water overnight in the refrigerator and well drained
15 ounce can organic pumpkin (nothing added just pumpkin)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon raw organic maca powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon powdered ginger
1 pinch stevia (or to taste)


Toss everything in your high speed blender (I used my Vitamix) and process until smooth. To serve top with a little sliced banana, sliced almonds and/or granola if desired.

Nutritional Information (does not include the banana, nuts or granola):

This reminds me of pumpkin pie only without the guilt. I love that in included omega 3 fatty acids (from the chia seeds), and beta-carotene (from the pumpkin). This may be good for you but it tastes delicious.

Talk to you again soon. I am off to catch up on things at home. I hope to get another post up very soon. Wish me luck.


  1. This looks amazing. I love love LOVE pumpkin pie anything. Do you think I could replace half the cashews with avocado and leave out the maca?

  2. Kae,

    I think you could replace all the cashews with avocado. It may change the color but the texture should be fine. I added the chia seeds for nutrition and texture (but make sure they are ground completely if not using a high powered blender use a spice grinder on the chias first). The maca was added for health reasons only so I am sure it would be fine without. I hope you like it as much as I did. :-)


  3. YUM! This sounds and looks great. Can't wait to try it.

  4. Aimee,

    Thanks, I was very pleased with it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It will be reappearing at my house soon. ;-)


  5. Angel,
