Premier Protein® Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse
Makes 6 Servings
Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1 Scoop Premier Protein® 100% Whey Powder, Vanilla
- ½ Cup Pureed Pumpkin
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 8 ounces Fat-Free Cream Cheese (softened)
- 2 tsp of Stevia (or your choice of sugar substitute)
- 1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- Place the pureed pumpkin in a bowl and pour one-half of the vanilla protein powder into the pumpkin and stir.
- Once combined, pour the rest of the protein powder into the pumpkin mixture and stir until it is well incorporated.
- Add the vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice into the mixture and stir until it is mixed well.
- In another bowl, place your softened cream cheese and beat with a mixer until creamy. Gradually incorporate the pumpkin mixture into the cream cheese and mix on medium until well combined.
- Add the Stevia (or the sugar substitute you’re using) into the mixture and mix on low.
- Clean your beaters so you can use them for the heavy whipping cream.
- Pour the heavy whipping cream into a separate bowl. Beat on medium and gradually move to a high setting moving the mixer back and forth. Continue beating the heavy whipping cream on high until you have peaks that separate in the bowl.
- Fold your heavy whipping cream mixture into the pumpkin mixture, then place into serving cups and chill until served.
Optional: Reserve a small amount of the whipped cream mixture to add as a topping!
