Pumpkin Fluff

Pumpkin Fluff
(It's like pumpkin pie with the whipped cream mixed in it!)

You will need…
  •     15 oz. Pumpkin (canned or fresh)
  •     16 oz. Cool Whip thawed (I used two 8 oz. Cool whip from Trader Joes, because there is no trans fat in it)
  •     2 scoops of Shaklee 180 Vanilla smoothie mix or Shaklee Vitalized Immunity Vanilla mix, or can sub package instant vanilla pudding mix.
  •     ½ - ¾ tsp. Cinnamon
  •     5-7 dashes of nutmeg

Mix the cinnamon, nutmeg, protein mix and pumpkin together.  Then fold in Cool Whip.  Can garnish with a few dashes of either cinnamon or nutmeg.  Serve cold / cool.

I serve this delicious fluff with apple and pear slices, and windmill cookies.  You can also serve with ginger snaps, gram crackers or a buttery Ritz type of cracker for a salty sweet.

Or you can make a pecan-gram cracker crust or use a pre-made gram cracker piecrust and put the fluff on top to make a fluffy pumpkin pie. 

To make the pecan-gram cracker crust, you will need…
  • ·   ½ cup crushed or chopped pecans
  • ·    1-1.5 (about one package) cups crushed gram crackers
  • ·    ½ stick butter, melted.

Combine all three ingredients and press into an 8” or 9” pie dish.  Make sure to spray the pie dish with either coconut oil or olive oil to prevent sticking.  Top with the pumpkin fluff.  Serve cold, you can garnish with cinnamon, nutmeg or extra whipping cream.
