Pumpkin cream whip

Irisa Raina 9


I am always looking to do something different with pumpkin. This is what we had for Thanksgiving dessert.
It is sweet but not overly sweet and has a mild pumpkin flavor and the gingersnaps go oh so well with this.

If you want more of a pumpkin flavor in the whip, add more of the pie mix, one teaspoon at a time, mixing in between each addition.

And that wonderful juice that you’ll have in the bottom of the container, after draining the pumpkin,don’t discard it. Freeze it and use it in any number of dishes, like soups, stews, sauces etc.
If you have any left this whip freezes very well.
