Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Pumpkin Mousse

This is another really easy recipe. I got this from my cousin, Dela. She got it from a WW person. And I'm passing it along to you! If you like pumpkin, you'll like this recipe. In the picture at the bottom, you'll see only 7 serving dishes......I HAD to try one right away. It was good, but after refrigerating these for a few hours, it was even better!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1 (1.5 oz.) package sugar free/fat free vanilla (or butterscotch) instant pudding mix
3 cups cold fat free milk
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 (8 oz.) container fat free whipped topping

In a large bowl, mix together the pudding mix and milk; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, mix together the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.

Fold the pumpkin and whipped topping in with the pudding mix.

Divide into 8 serving dishes and refigerate @2 hours before serving.

MY SPIN: I used the vanilla instant pudding mix because I thought the butterscotch would 'take away' from the pumpkin flavor. This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat free whipped topping.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
