My Weight Watchers leader gave me this recipe for Weight Watchers Pumpkin Mousse. I don't know if it's an official Weight Watchers recipe or something she came up with on her own.

It's a lifesaver when everyone else is stuffing their faces on pumpkin pie and you're feeling sorry for yourself. It satisfies your sweet tooth and your need for something creamy, too. This is a terrific party recipe for Halloween or Thanksgiving.

Under the old Weight Watchers POINTS system, it’s 2 POINTS per serving. Under the POINT PLUS system it’s 3 POINTS per serving.

You can prepare your Weight Watchers Pumpkin Mousse ahead of time and put 1/2 cup servings in martini glasses or small pudding bowls for after dinner or parties. That way you've premeasured your serving and won't be tempted to overindulge. Also, doesn't it make dessert more fun if you're eating it out of a special glass? I think so!

If you like pie, you can make up a batch of Weight Watchers Pumpkin Mousse, fill a premade graham cracker pie crust with it and freeze the pie for few hours. Then when you're ready to eat, leave the pie out for a while so it softens up enough to cut. You'll have to add a POINT for the graham cracker crust of course. And you'll have to eyeball what you think is 1/2 cup of pumpkin mousse.

    i am making the pumpkin mousse and pouring into 2 prepared graham cracker crusts. can’t wait 2 let u know how it turns out.

    Hi I made this but mine is runny. When I mix the 2 cups of milk with the pudding am I suppose to heat like it says on the box ???

      1. Sarah

        I made it without the cool whip, becuase i did not have any, and i made it with lowfat soymilk. It was very good, it is already gone!!!

          That’s terrific Sarah. I’m not a huge fan of Cool Whip since I’m trying to eat more healthfully and avoid processed food than I was when I wrote this post back in 2004. Check out my Pumpkin Tofu Smoothie (which can be made into a pudding) at link to thismamacooks.com for a more “whole foods” approach.

    very confused. Just used WW recipe builder- couldn’t get 1.5 point no matter what I did—here’s how i go: 15oz pumpkin = 1pt. FF/SF instant pudding has 4 servings in box x 2boxes= 5 Pts. 8 oz free whipped topping= 7.5 Pts. 2 c. FF skim milk= 3.5Pts. spice=0. 1+5+7.5+3.5= 18. If it were 9 servings, it would be 2 points. But there’s no way this makes more than 9 cups! so it can’t be 1.5 points, and I doubt it makes 9 cups of mousse, either. did I do something wrong?

      No, it’s supposed to be pudding like. How much milk did you add? And did you use two packages of pudding mix or one?

    1. annemarie Post author

      Mary, not sure how many cups in the recipe, but it’s more than enough to put into one if not two graham cracker pie crusts. I’d freeze the pie and then take it out for about 15 minutes before serving.

  5. Laura Sperry

    So which is it 1.5pts or 5 if I can with the exact recipe above? I made this last week and was journaling 1.5pts.
    Love this recipe!

    Meg, your POINTS total is going to differ per serving too since you added more milk. I guess it’ll be 2 to 2.5 POINTS per cup.

  7. Meg

    Thank you. I thought so but my husband didn’t agree. I listened to him and mine is like pumpkin pudding, but still very good.

  8. Meg

    I have a dumb question. Do you mix the pudding packets with the 2 cups of milk the recipe calls for or follow the instructions on the packets of pudding. Just asking because the packets of pudding call for 2 cups of milk per packet.

    Pumpkin mousse is delicious and a must have for Thanksgiving and even other holidays. The canned pumpkin has a lot of vitamin A, some calcium, vitamin C, vitamin e, iron,
    5 g. fiber per serving, and only 0.5 g. of fat per serving. Serve instead of pumpkin pie. Even my teenage son enjoyed it. It’s really a no guilt pleasure. Just remember to fold in the whip cream last.
