Light Butterscotch Pumpkin Mousse is creamy and delicious!
Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for holiday desserts that taste rich and calorie-laden but are lower in fat and calories.
Yes, it’s possible to breeze right through the holidays and enjoy lightened-up favorites like my Light Butterscotch Pumpkin Mousse and never miss the calories at all.
I’m A-OK with an occasional holiday indulgence of sinfully rich and decadent desserts, but I have to be careful not to overindulge.
Normally, I would prepare the full-fat version of Butterscotch Mousse. However, after reading an article in this month’s edition of Healthy Living Made Simple Magazine, I realized how easy it is to make a few better-for-me substitutions.
Thankfully, the end result is actually better than my original recipe. I promise!

One of the things I learned from Sam’s Club’s Healthy Living Made Simple Magazine is that “canned pumpkin has a similar profile to that of fresh pumpkin. However, canned pumpkin has significantly higher fiber and vitamin A by volume thanks to its concentration levels as a result of the canning process.”
That’s good to know because I don’t do for-real pumpkins.
I’ve been a member of Sam’s Club for many years. I stop by often for food items (including pumpkin puree), party supplies, decor, and just to browse around and see what’s new.
You may not know it, but Sam’s Club offers a whole lot more than party supplies. It’s the one-stop health and wellness destination for everything you need including free health screenings.
Try my Light Butterscotch Pumpkin Mousse whenever you need a great holiday dessert. It’s scrumptious and no one has to know that it’s lower in fat and calories.
