Recipe for Honey Pumpkin Mousse. This not-so-traditional honey dessert is also light and diabetic friendly.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 can (16 ounces) solid pack pumpkin
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt

Directions

  1. In the top of a double boiler, combine egg whites and honey. Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 160°F. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Using electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until cool and glossy peaks form; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine egg yolks, pumpkin, flour, spices and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils; remove from heat. Gently stir 1/4 of the beaten egg whites into pumpkin mixture; gradually fold remaining egg whites into lightened mixture. Spoon mousse into dessert glasses; cover and chill.
