1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 sliced and frozen banana, thawed for 5 minutes
¾ cup canned pure pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
½ teaspoon ground pumpkin pie spice
Optional Topping: Crushed gingersnap cookies, hemp seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds
- Place the cottage cheese, banana, pumpkin, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice in the bowl of a food processor and process 30 seconds.
- Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Continue to process until smooth and creamy, about 1 more minute. The mixture should resemble mousse or pudding.
- Meanwhile, for the topping, place crushed gingersnaps, hemp seeds, and pumpkin seeds in a small bowl and stir to combine. (We did not measure the amounts, but recommend enough for a few sprinkles).
- Scoop the mousse into 4 bowls and sprinkle evenly with the topping.
