Awesome Dessert Pie Sans the Super-sized Calories

chocolate-mouse-pieHappy Monday, guys and this one goes out to all those who LOVE dessert but are not all too keen on all the calories that may come with it! This ultra low-calorie dessert has been featured before, but we wanted to bring it up again because 1) it tastes AWESOME (not funky like you sometimes get with low-cal options) 2) it is seriously super easy to make and fast 3) it can be made with so many twists and tweaks...if you want even more chocolate, pumpkin style, and even with mix-ins like cookies. Finally, we also wanted to do this because we're introducing a fun new gadget to the blog and soon to be the site. This widget is called the ShopGlider and anytime we put up a recipe you'll see below the little button with the message "Click to Add This Recipe to Your Recipe Book" which takes you to a place where you can choose to create an online recipe book. You do need to make an online account, but it's free, and again totally up to you. We thought it was a fun kind of idea and wanted to see what you guys thought. We also wanted to say that the ShopGlider isn't paying us or anything like that by trying to bring them visitors. It's really only something we wanted to share with you all that might make eating and making healthier dishes easier!

So, without further adieu, here's the skinny on this Ultra Low-Calorie Dessert Pie recipe:


  • 2 Pkgs Instant Fat Free/Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding
  • 2 Cups Skim Milk
  • 1 tub Light Cool Whip
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 1 Graham Cracker Crust
  • 1 Combine milk, pudding mix, vanilla and half the tub of cool whip. Mix thoroughly
  • 1 Pour mixture into crust and top with remaining cool whip
  • 1 Optional: Add slices of banana or crushed Oreo cookies on top


  1. This is one of my absolute favorite desserts. I am usually very skeptical of light, low cal or fat free desserts, I usually think they either have a funny taste or simply are not satisfying. This dessert proved me wrong! In fact, it is so good that people often ask me for the recipe with no idea how easy and ‘light’ it is. This is one dessert I would have no doubt about serving at a party or bbq, I guarantee the compliments will flow!
  2. The best part is that there are so many variations that will totally change the dessert, so you never get bored!
  3. Variations:
  4. Make it a pumpkin mousse pie by adding half a can of pumpkin (can easily buy this at any grocery store), and sprinkle the top with cinnamon
  5. Use chocolate pudding instead and add a crushed up ‘skor’ chocolate bar to the mix
  6. Use cheesecake instant pudding mix to make it a cheesecake pie
