Pumpkin Whip…a no-sugar-added light ending



A fluffy and light change of pace from pie after your big dinner…but every bit as wonderful! Light, not too sweet or heavy…this is one of my favorite desserts – and very quick to whisk together if company comes by, too.




One 1 ounce package (Four 1/2 cup-servings)  Jell-O sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding powder
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups Splenda-sweetened whipped cream (1 cup whiipping cream, 3 teaspoons Splenda granular)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (my recipe here)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl beat together the pudding mix and milk until thick.  Stir in pumpkin puree, spices, and vanilla.  Fold in whipped cream.  Cover and chill for at least two hours.  Garnish with pecans or toasted coconut.  Makes 6 servings about 1/2 cup each.

    I thought I was the only one who did the butterscotch pudding cheat with pumpkin puree. Delicious sugar free autumn treat. Husband loves it!

    This is one of few treats that I can have, and keep myself from overdoing. I don’t know, maybe because its not cake, nor does it involve a pie pastry. But its darned good, that much I do know!

    Oh! I can’t wait to try this.
    I am a total newbie at cooking so I hope this question doesn’t make me sound stupid: What exactly is pumpkin spice? Can I substitute it with something else like ground cloves, ginger and cinnamon?

    1. Linda says:

      Pumpkin Pie Spice does have all those things in it, so that would be fine. I get the McCormick’s brand PPSpice (red top, yellow label that is in every grocery store).

      Use a rounded 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, a little less than 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon cloves.

    Oh wow–this looks so rich, yet so light! Definitely a good alternative to a heavy pie to finish a meal.

    I made this tonight. It was so good.

    Do you know how much is a serving…half a cup or cup?


    1. Linda says:

      I would say it’s a rounded 1/2 cup. I’m glad you loved it. You’ll have to try it with the Cheesecake sugar free pudding powder!

        1. Linda says:

          Usually a bigger grocery store will stock it. Regular Jello brand.
