~A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving...Weekend!

It's almost that time. I love the holidays & go crazy watching all the movies. So here's is a great one for all of you. :)

I must admit I have never really been a huge fan of sweet potatoes. Until the year I tried Snoopy's Sweet Potato Pumpkin Mousse. There are no words for it. :)

This mousse is elegant, continental, sophisticated and incredibly easy. There’s no cooking, no whipping and no fuss, and yet the results are as creamy and decadent as a confection that took hours to prepare. Made with the delectable flavor of sweet potatoes.


1 can (15 ounces) cut sweet potatoes in syrup, drained (1/4 cup syrup reserved)
1 can (15 ounces) 100% pure pumpkin purée
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups sweetened* whipped cream or whipped dessert topping

* Add a small amount of table sugar to unsweetened whipping cream while whipping.
Preparation Time: Approximately 5 minutes


Purée sweet potatoes and reserved syrup in a food processor. Add pumpkin, honey, pie spice, and cinnamon, and process until blended and smooth. Scrape into a large bowl.

Fold in the whipped cream (don’t overmix) and serve, or store mousse tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
Servings: 6

I thought I was the only one who isn't crazy about sweet potatoes.
