Looking for that perfectly portioned dessert?

October 26th is when all the pumpkin-obsessed individuals rejoice! Sorry, my recipe is belated. I was busy creating and enjoying this delicious, rich, and creamy No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse. [No Bake] Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenThese mini desserts will be great to serve at a gathering or an upcoming holiday party. It’s that perfectly portioned treat and I bet no one will ever guess there is tofu in this dessert.

Yes, tofu. Silken tofu can be used to replace eggs or dairy to create a lighter dessert. Just be sure to grab silken tofu. Making regular tofu entails pressing the soy curds and separating them from the whey. For silken tofu, there is no separation or pressure exerted, and it’s often solidified right in the container. Silken tofu has a pudding-like quality. It’s very light in texture with a wonderful, creamy, rich and consistency.

  1. These look so cute and elegant! Perfect healthier treat to serve at a fall party! I love using silken tofu in no bake goodies too! 🙂

  2. I can hardly wait to get some silken tofu. It’s going to fit into my WEIGHT WATCHERS menu!
    Thank you so much?

  3. Am I crazy or is there no pumpkin in this recipe? How can it be called pumpkin if there is none?

  4. has anyone else actually made this?.. i ask because the one and Only time i made a desert with canned pumpkin that was not cooked, it was Awful..
    so am quite concerned that i would be wasting time & money..
    it does SOUND like a wonderful desert. and obviously at least a few like uncooked pumpkin but i would really like to see more reviews..

    • Hi RL Johnson,
      My best friend is a pumpkin fein, not to mention a total “food snob”. I say that lovingly, of course. I made this for a friendsgiving last year and she (and everyone else) loved it! Totally worth it!
      Hope this helps!
      Stephanie
