chocolate mousse

This decadent mousse is light, airy, and healthy, all thanks to one secret ingredient — pumpkin! Pumpkin is high in fiber and low in fat, helping to ward off winter weight gain. Plus, one cup of pumpkin contains only 80 calories. Why bury your pumpkin in a pie when you can make a guilt-free treat with ingredients that help lower heart disease and potentially prevent cancer?
