is it possible to make a no cooking pumpkin dessert,by merely opening a can of plain pumpkin adding some suitable ingredients such as splenda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and (if necessary) folding in some sugar free whipped cream? then separating it into portion sizes, putting it in the fridge to chill? What sayeth thou? Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

The below recipe isn't no cook, but I think it would turn out really yummy! For an easy no cook pumpkin treat I think you could just whip some heavy cream with sugar substitute and pumpkin pie spices (and a dash of vanilla) to hard peaks then gently fold in a bit of pumpkin puree and chill. The below recipe uses a custard base to make it thicker. I also found a gelatin based one as well.

Pumpkin Mousse Trifle

5 large egg yolks
1 cup sugar substitute
3 1/2 cups heavy cream
15 ounces canned pumpkin (1 can)
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 ounces shaved dark chocolate

Fill a large bowl halfway with ice water and set aside. Beat the yolks and 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar sub together in a medium bowl until thick. Bring 3/4 cup cream to a boil and stream into the yolks while whisking continuously. Transfer to a clean bowl and set over the ice bath. Stir the pumpkin, rum, vanilla, spices, and salt into the egg mixture. Beat 1/2 cup cream to stiff peaks and fold into the pumpkin mixture. Cover and chill for 5 to 12 hours. Beat the remaining cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Alternately layer the pumpkin mousse and whipped cream in a glass serving dish. Sprinkle the chocolate between top two layers. Serve chilled.

There is a recipe floating about here where you mix the pumpkin with some SF instant pudding - that is about as easy as it gets! I'll see if I can turn it up and link to it.

I have made something similar...

Sorry, I don't have measurements on this one, as I sort of wing it *L*.

Make SF Vanilla Pudding (I use the Dixie Carb from Netrition to cut down on the carbs, but sure any would work)

Add Canned Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie Spices to Taste

Make some Sweetened Whipped Cream and gently fold it into the mixture to make it light and fluffy. You can adjust the sweetener to your particular taste at this point.

I usually put it into individual parfait cups. Great alone, or served with a dollop of whipped cream on top!

I call it Pumpkin Whipped Mousse- and my three year old usually eats more of it than I do! It's wonderfully creamy and very good...

Also, instead of pudding, try mixing canned pumpkin with cream cheese and sweetner. Then sprinkle on some cinnamon or nutmeg or other spices. Then gently mix in whpped cream. Tada!

From my blog:

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pudding

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar free DaVinci Syrup, vanilla or Pumpkin Pie flavor
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (if using vanilla syrup)
Whipped Cream for topping

Blend everything together in a blender or use a stick blender. A hand mixer will do if the cream cheese is soft. Pour into dessert cups or shot glasses. To make a layered dessert, add whipped cream in between layers of pudding. Chill before serving. This recipe will serve 4 regular desserts or 7-8 dessert shots.

Yummy and too easy.
