Whipped Pumpkin Autumn Mousse with Gerber Lil’ Bits

Fall is officially here! Well, maybe not officially, but with leaves turning, school buses passing by, and pumpkins on every corner, it’s hard not get into the autumn spirit! As a latte addict, I don’t like my coffee too sweet but I do request one pump of pumpkin spice when September rolls around. In the spirit of PSL season (pumpkin spice latte!), I’ve come up with a delicious and healthy toddler alternative!

 

Even babies and toddlers can get in on the tastes of the season with this easy Whipped Pumpkin Mousse recipe, which features Gerber Lil’ Bits Sweet Potato, Apple, Carrot & Cinnamon.

 

You’ll need: 

1/4 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup pumpkin purée

1/2 container of Gerber Lil’ Bits Sweet Potato, Apple, Carrot & Cinnamon (available in the baby food section – I got ours at Target!)

Blend whipping cream and pumpkin in the blender or with a whisk. Add to a bowl and stir in half a container of Lil Bits. Refrigerate before serving.

Baby will love the mixture of light, whipped pumpkin with the simple goodness of Lil’Bits, which combine tiny chunks that are perfect for helping your crawler learn to chew! PS, this suction bowl is also by Gerber!

Sweet Pea loved this special fall dish, and I loved knowing that she was getting a healthy snack!  As usual, I let her experiment with using her spoon and the result was a very pumpkin-faced little girl!
