CREAMY PUMPKIN MOUSSE

 

WHAT ARE THE FOUR BASIC COMPONENTS OF A MOUSSE?

 
One of the great things about making a mousse is that you only need a couple of ingredients. You will need some type of a base, something to aerate it and some type of a sweetener. That’s it. 
 

WHY IS IT CALLED MOUSSE?

 
Mousse simply means foam or froth in French. 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUDDING AND MOUSSE?

 
Mousse is a lighter texture that is created by slowly folding whipped cream or beaten egg whites into a base of sugar and cold milk. Pudding is a thicker mixture that comes together after adding cornstarch to a mixture of a sugar base and milk. 
 

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THIS CREAMY PUMPKIN MOUSSE?

 
Heavy whipping cream, real Maple syrup, Pumpkin purée, cream cheese, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract and half and half and some pretty cool dessert cups.
