Fruity pumpkin mousse

Fall flavours meet tropical paradise in this luscious, Fruity Pumpkin Mousse! Perfectly blended creamy pumpkin mousse topped with a vibrant selection of fresh fruits, bringing you the best of both worlds. Each spoonful is a celebration of seasonal spices and sweet, juicy delights. Who knew pumpkin could taste so refreshingly divine?

Ingredients for 6 persons:

  • 500 ml apple juice
  • 400 g pumpkin flesh, diced
  • Juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange
  • 100 g sugar
  • 6 leaves gelatin (alternatively 9 g gelatin powder)
  • 200 g cream

Preparation:

  1. Peel the pumpkin and cut into 1 cm cubes. Gently simmer the diced pumpkin in the apple juice for 30 minutes.
  2. Finely puree the cooked pumpkin using a hand mixer, then add the sugar with the lemon and orange juice. Blend the mixture well. Allow the gelatin leaves to swell in water for ca. 5 minutes and then gently squeeze out the excess water (alternatively, prepare the gelatine powder following the package instructions).
  3. Dissolve the swollen gelatin in the pumpkin puree while it is still warm and mix in well. Allow to cool, but shortly before the mousse has cooled entirely, whip and fold in the cream.
  4. Place the pumpkin mousse in small dishes or in a hollowed-out pumpkin, and then place it in the refrigerator to cool. Top with your favourite fruit.
