October has arrived and we’re all craving a little bit of pumpkin in our lives. In only three steps, you’ll be enjoying this creamy Pumpkin Mousse.

Your favorite fall fruit is featured in this simple dessert. Pumpkin season is in full swing and you need healthy options that fit into your Nutrisystem program. Our Pumpkin Mousse recipe is diet-friendly and only requires three easy steps.

To make your mousse, grab your blender and combine cottage cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and sugar. Blend this until smooth and pour it into your favorite bowl or cup. Refrigerate your pumpkin mousse for at least 15 minutes to allow it to stiffen. Once it has firmed up, top it with light cool whip, a pinch of cinnamon and crushed pecans. Feel free to swap out the pecans with another nut or seed that you enjoy! Pumpkin seeds would be a perfect addition and fit into your pumpkin theme.

Helpful Hint: Make sure to use unsweetened pumpkin puree, not canned pumpkin pie filling!
