Tropical Pudding Shots

Yes pudding shots! I know you’ve all heard of jello shots. I also think it’s time for me to serve them at my next party. But pudding shots are almost the same but with pudding! This recipe calls for sugar-free fat-free pudding but if you’re not watching calories just use the regular pudding. I actually have not made them yet but I plan to soon! They sound delicious! This recipe also only makes 8 servings so if you have a huge crowd  adjust the amounts accordingly. And since I am allergic to the aspartame in the sugar-free jello puddings (and jello) I will have to find one with Splenda or just use the regular kind. Have fun and enjoy the weekend!


4 ounces fat-free milk (I will probably use fat-free half-and-half)

1 small (4 serving) package Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix (or any other kind you want)

3 ounces coconut rum

1 ounce lime juice

½ cup canned crushed pineapple in juice, not drained

1 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed (or regular if you wish)


1. Combine milk and pudding in a bowl and whisk or mix until smooth. Add the rum, lime juice and pineapple. Stir well.

2. Fold in the Cool Whip. Once mixture is smooth throughout, divide it among 8 small cups.

3. Place in fridge until ready to serve, at least 30 minutes. Use a spoon to eat!

Pumpkin Mousse

I know what you’re thinking. Pumpkin in June? Yes, pumpkin in June! It’s not just for the fall anymore! Now the big issue right now is if you can find canned pumpkin. NOT pumpkin pie filling, they are two totally different animals. For the most part I have only seen Libby’s pumpkin in a can. Small 15 ounce cans or the larger cans. During the holidays pumpkin became scarce because of the poor crop they had. The stores that did carry it started to ration it. It was crazy. I kept stocking up because I had heard from my food guru, The Hungry Girl© (www.hungry-girl.com), that the pumpkin would be hard to find. So I stocked up. And yes there is more to pumpkin than pumpkin pie! Really there is! Pumpkin is low in calories, low in fat, has no trans fat, saturated fat or cholesterol. A ½ cup serving of 100% pure pumpkin equals 1 vegetable serving! It is naturally sodium free and an excellent means of getting your fiber! Pumpkin is also very high in Vitamin A with 80% as Beta-Carotene (an antioxidant) and it is naturally gluten-free! It is also a low carb veggie! So give this low-calorie dessert a spin and your body will thank you for it! I actually got this recipe from my former Weight Watchers® leader years ago. She was full of pumpkin recipes! Remember you can switch out the fat-free stuff for full fat stuff if you want. I won’t tell!


2 packages sugar-free instant vanilla pudding

2 cups fat-free milk

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 can 100% pumpkin (15 oz) – NOT PUMPKIN PIE MIX

8 ounce tub fat-free cool whip


1. Make the pudding according to the directions with the 2 cups milk. Fold in other ingredients.

2. Refrigerate and serve when set! Enjoy!

Dollop a little whipped topping on top and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice if you wish!

A 1 cup serving has 1½ Weight Watchers® points.(If made as is)
