Easy Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dessert: Pumpkin Mousse Recipe

Everyone will LOVE this dessert. Only 5 ingredients with 5 minute prep time is a big win in my book!

This easy gluten free Thanksgiving dessert is beyond simple to prepare and seasonally perfect for all things autumn and Thanksgiving. I first tested out this recipe last year when I was hosting Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family and wanted to also please my parents and my 4 year old son – all who were recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and needed to eat gluten free.

Easy Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dessert: Pumpkin Mousse Recipe

I promise everyone will love this interesting seasonal dessert – and every chef will love the quick and easy prep time. I especially love that you only need 5 ingredients, all of which are easy to find and pick up at your local Walmart. You can use Walmart’s store brand evaporated milk and whipped topping as well.

Pumpkin Mousse Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 box of vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (Alternatively you can use Cinnamon – but any version of Pumpkin Pie Style spices taste best!)
  • 2/3 cup Evaporated Fat Free Milk (Small 5 fl. oz can)
  • 1 cup LIBBY’S 100% Pure Pumpkin – (This is about 2/3 of a can)
  • 2 1/2 cups thawed fat-free frozen whipped topping

Pumpkin Mousse Preparation Directions

Mix together your dry ingredients first – the pudding mix and pumpkin spice. Next, using a whisk, add in your evaporated milk. Mix well. Add in your Libby’s pure pumpkin and stir everything well. Finally add your thawed out whipped topping. I recommend 2 1/2 cups of whipped topping as I find the pure pumpkin very rich.You can add more or less to taste if you’d prefer but my family likes this ratio best.
After you scoop the pumpkin mousse into serving cups, top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle more cinnamon or pumpkin spice on top.

Pumpkin Mousse Serving Ideas

Serve your pumpkin mousse in small ramekins. Ramekins make a great presentation and the dessert is very rich so it’s not something to serve in a large dessert bowl. If you have clear glass ramekins this will look very pretty to show off the orange shades of pumpkin!

This is honestly so easy to make even the kids will be able to assist every bit of the way!
