This year, I am thankful for the opportunity to share recipes and beautiful food pictures with you and that includes this Paleo Pumpkin Mousse & Almond Crust! I love this recipe because it’s the perfect solution for enjoying a pumpkin dessert without loading your system with refined sugar and high glycemic carbohydrates. The pumpkin mousse and crust contain only 2 total tbsp of added sugar, natural sweeteners like bananas and dates, and organic grass-fed ghee from Pure Indian Foods. This holiday pumpkin treat is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, paleo and pegan friendly, and low in added sugar.

Dive in and enjoy this delectable paleo pumpkin dessert!

Nourish Your Body Without Too Much Restriction

It may surprise you but there you can still enjoy the holidays without sinking into the apple pie with 2 cups of sugar and ice cream and getting in bed feeling like your digestive system is going to explode.

This pegan pumpkin mousse with almond crust is the perfect grey zone option. The treat includes a small amount of added sugar (1 tbsp brown sugar in the crust and 1 tbsp maple syrup in the filling) and includes very nourishing ingredients. Dig into this pumpkin mousse and enjoy the subtle sweetness that makes you feel like you’re eating a holiday treat. For people that typically eat a higher sugar diet, your taste buds are probably a little less sensitive to sweetness so I would recommend adding a little extra maple syrup!

Enjoy the holiday season, relax, celebrate your friends and family and try to nourish your body to the best of your ability. Let go of the need to eat perfect because there’s no such thing as perfectionism—especially around the holidays.
