Low Fat Low Sugar Pumpkin Trifle
3 cups cold, fat-free milk
2 (1-oz) packages vanilla sugar-free, fat-free pudding mix
1 (15 oz.) can solid packed pumpkin
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1-2/3 cups ginger snap crumbs, roughly crushed
2 ½ cups fat-free whipped topping
Place milk in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add pudding mixes while
mixer is running. Beat for 2 minutes on high speed. Chill pudding in
refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. Add pumpkin and spices to pudding
and stir well with a spatula. Set aside. To assemble trifle,
sprinkle 2/3 cup of ginger snap crumbs in the bottom of a large
clear, glass bowl.
Gently spread about 2 cups of the pumpkin pudding over the crumbs.
Spread 1 ½ cups of whipped topping on the top of pudding. (You
should see nice, neat layers through the sides of the bowl.) Repeat
procedure with another 2/3 cup of crumbs and remaining pudding. Top
with 1 cup of whipped topping in a neat, decorative circle and
sprinkle with 1/3 cup of crumbs for a garnish. Chill trifle until
ready to serve.
