Pumpkin Butterscotch Mousse Parfait
We love pumpkin in this house. I love the taste of a freshly baked pumpkin pie topped with lots of whipped cream.

PUMPKIN THE SUPERFOOD
Pumpkin is a superfood and:
-is a good source of fiber and a great source of Vitamin A.
-can reduce the fat in some of your favorite recipes.
-can also be stirred into jarred or prepared sauces to reduce sodium per serving.
-can be used as a substitute in your favorite recipes to reduce calories.
LIBBY'S PUMPKIN CAN BE USED YEAR ROUND FOR A VARIETY OF RECIPES
Did you know that Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable in that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes throughout the year? I have never thought about it like that but pumpkin really is something that can be used year round.
Pumpkin also works great as an add-in. Stir a couple of tablespoons into a variety of foods for an added boost of fiber, Vitamin A and flavor – oatmeal, smoothies, macaroni and cheese. We have started adding it to our smoothies. Pumpkin makes our smoothies even more creamy and delicious.
Keeping pumpkin on hand throughout the year is also a great idea. Leftover pumpkin can be portioned or put into an ice try and stored in the freezer so it ready whenever you want it.
