Spiced Pumpkin Mousse

The secret to rich desserts without the fat? Silken tofu. Unlike the firm tofu used in stir-frys, this softer type can be blended to a smooth, thick consistency – perfect for creamy desserts. Lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup and your favorite pumpkin pie spices, our mousse is so rich and delicious your family will never be able to guess the secret ingredient.
