Description

This is a very light dessert. I like to use mascarpone and cream cheese together in a mousse because the mascarpone just brings a lighter and creamier taste and texture. It’s also fewer carbs than cream cheese. But if you don’t have any, go ahead and make this with all cream cheese—it will still be good. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, sugar free.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces, weight Organic Valley Cultured Cream Cheese
  • 4 ounces, weight Bel Giosio Mascarpone
  • ⅔ cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • ⅓ cups Dream Blends Coconut Almond Chia Drink (or Other Milk Substitute)
  • 1 cup Libby's Pumpkin Puree (Not Pumpkin Pie Mix)
  • ½ cups Confectioner's Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon Allspice (or 1.5 Tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Soften cream cheese and mascarpone in a glass mixing bowl in the microwave, about 20 seconds, maybe a little more. It doesn’t matter if it melts a little, it will set back up.

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and mascarpone together until well-blended with no lumps. Add remaining ingredients and mix slowly until everything is incorporated. Turn mixer to high and keep beating until entire mixture becomes light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Spoon into serving containers and chill at least 2 hours before serving. Servings are approximately 1/2 cup each. (I use 1/2 cup jars with lids.)

Store in refrigerator or freezer. Pull out frozen portions about 1 hour ahead of serving and leave on counter to defrost.

Note: Use all cream cheese if you don’t have mascarpone. Add 1/2 carb more per serving.

I don’t get any commission or kickback for products I use or mention in my recipes. Brand names are included only to more accurately assess nutritional estimates, which are based on exact ingredients I used. Nutrition estimates are calculated per serving with My Fitness Pal’s online recipe analyzer. If you make any changes to the ingredients, your results may differ. The recipe is stored there and available to MFP users for logging in their food diaries. I do not include sugar alcohols or liquid sucralose in my nutrition counts, as they are not absorbed by the body and rate zero on the glycemic index.
