Pumpkin Pudding Mousse

Tess Geer


This is a family favorite made all the better because it's low-fat and healthy! Pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber and vitamins. I have also used vanilla or pumpkin spice instant pudding with equally yummy results. I like to top mine with a scattering of candied walnuts and fat-free whipped topping. Makes a lovely presentation in a martini or stemless wine glass!
