The in laws love pumpkin.
One night after a meal at Pu Tien, the dad was regaling stories on how Jamie Oliver made this delicious looking dessert out of pumpkin, which was similar to what we had earlier. But when i pressed further on the ingredients used by Jamie, dad was dumbstruck. He forgot.
Because Thanksgiving was around the corner, i gave this a go.. something which i came out with myself with no whatsoever recipe to refer to. Guess what? Everyone loved it!
Too bad i didn’t have any mint leaves with me, otherwise the photo would be lovely with a touch of green :)
secretly hoping the green bottom would sorta replace the mint leaves but (!), oh-so-naive-me! Haha!

1/2 cup cream or more
sugar, to taste
cinnamon, to taste
vanilla ice cream (optional but it’s definitely much tastier with it)

1. blend the pumpkin together in food processor until almost smooth.
2. add cream, sugar and cinnamon and continue to blend till smooth.
3. refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
4. served cold with vanilla ice cream and sliced almonds.
Note : if i had made Cinnamon ice cream earlier, it’d be a blast!
