Ingredients

Pumpkin Mousse:

  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt

 Cream Cheese Filling:

  • ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Topping:

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, crushed
  • ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk together the pumpkin puree, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and salt until fluffy. Transfer to a gallon Ziploc bag and snip one bottom corner of the bag. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to whip the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Transfer to a gallon Ziploc bag and snip one bottom corner of the bag. Set aside.
  3. Gather 6 small jars or dessert cups. Pipe a 1-inch layer of the pumpkin mousse, then a 1-inch layer of cream cheese filling, then a sprinkle of the crushed almonds and graham cracker crumbs. Repeat for 2 more layers in each jar, finishing with the almonds and graham cracker crumbs on top. Refrigerate 30 minutes or serve immediately.

Notes

Cooking Tip: If you need to warm up the cream cheese quickly, place the block (in the wrapper) in a bowl of hot water for 5-10 minutes or until softened.
