Perfect Fall Recipe: Creamy Pumpkin Mousse

 This time of the year is the BEST because of all the PUMPKIN food and drinks!  Yes, I'm one of those people who look forward to the Fall.  Warm clothes, pumpkin drinks, and being home with family is my favorite things to do now.  When I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Mousse, I knew I needed to share it with our readers.

It takes minimal effort and is a hit at holiday gatherings.  This is best to make the day before to set (chill in the fridge) overnight.  I liked the most about this recipe because I found everything at my local grocery store- no ingredient hunting.  I hate recipes that have you driving to several stores to get the ingredients. 

Be careful if you have TEENS- they tend to want to have Whipped Cream only and take it without you knowing.
