Ingredient List

  • Small check mark in a circle 180 g light soft cheese, at room temperature
  • Small check mark in a circle 100 g light brown soft sugar
  • Small check mark in a circle 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or mixed spice
  • Small check mark in a circle 425 g tin pumpkin purée
  • Small check mark in a circle 300 ml double cream
  • Small check mark in a circle 2 Nature Valley™ Crunchy Canadian Maple Syrup Snack Bars, roughly crushed


  1. Place the soft cheese in a large bowl with the brown sugar and cinnamon or mixed spice and beat with an electric whisk until smooth and creamy. Add the pumpkin purée and continue beating on a low speed until well blended.
  2. Whip the cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Using a spatula, gently fold three-quarters of the cream into the pumpkin mixture. Divide the mousse between 6 individual serving glasses.
  3. Top each with a dollop of the remaining cream and sprinkle over the crushed granola bars. Serve immediately or chill for up to 2 hours before serving.


  • If tinned pumpkin is unavailable, make your own by steaming 400g diced pumpkin flesh until very tender. Cool, then purée in a food processor or blender until smooth. You can make this dessert up to 3 hours ahead, but only sprinkle with the crushed granola bars just before serving. Any flavor of Nature Valley™ Crunchy Snack Bars can be used in this recipe.
