Here’s an original idea to use up some of your leftover pumpkin flesh or pots of pumpkin puree. I felt like surpassing myself and creating a healthy dessert that would dazzle all my guests. This chocolate cream is so rich and creamy, it’s hard to believe it’s actually healthy. But it is. You get the feeling you’re eating chocolate cream but in reality, it’s pumpkin cream. Really? You bet. Hahaha!
It’s refreshing, easy to make and everyone will love it. Don’t believe me? What if I told you my son Dridri (Adrien aged 4 and ½) said to me it was the best dessert in the world. Now do you believe me?
Grab your wooden spoon!
Let’s talk pumpkin!
High in fibre, pumpkin is also packed with vitamins C and E, which strengthen the immune system, large amounts of potassium, which protects people from the risk of hypertension, and carotenoid pigments such as alpha-carotene (vitamin A), beta-carotene and lutein, known to prevent the onset of numerous diseases, including certain types of cancer.
Pumpkin has only 25 calories per 100 g serving.
*If you don’t have any pumpkin flesh but you have some pumpkin puree, you can follow this same recipe using 4 cups (500 ml) of puree instead.
