Our local grocery store makes this stuff called fluff. It comes in a variety of different flavors and this month is pumpkin. I got a sample the other day and The Good Daughter LOVED it. Then I looked at the ingredients: High Fructose Corn Syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, red dye 40.
Nope, nope, nope.
So I thought there must be another way to make fluffy stuff but with, you know, actually food. This was simple to make and it was a nice easy dessert after lunch one afternoon.
1 can pumpkin
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 cup whipped cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
~Combine pumpkin, cream cheese, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Bend on medium speed until well combined.
~Gently fold in whipped cream. Cover and refrigerated for one hour before serving.
