Spiced Pumpkin Coconut Cream Mousse (vegan, refined sugar-, dairy-free)

There’s something about spiced pumpkin foods that makes me feel so warm. Many people love pumpkin based foods, but for some reason, most of us only make these things during Autumn/Fall. Why is that? There is tinned pumpkin puree in the stores all year around.

I had leftover pumpkin puree, and instead of freezing it and forgetting about it, I decided to mix it with whipped coconut cream and spice it with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The result? A delicious, creamy, light, pumpkin-ny dream.
