Light Coconut Cream Pie Mousse

blog 121

Hi guys!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I had a nice time shopping with one of my best friends while my boyfriend was getting his lifeguard certification.  Luckily he passed!

All the time of no boyfriend gave me plenty of time to come up with new recipes. 

I love coconut cream pie, but as we all know, it’s not necessarily the healthiest.  I came up with this recipe with simple ingredients that can be picked up at your local grocery store!  It’s only 1 Weight Watcher point and is sooo good.  I would have eaten 4 of these if I could.  This recipe only serves 1 so adjust accordingly for more servings.

Ingredients:

2 Tbs. fat free Cool Whip

1/8 tsp. coconut extract (the generic brand at Wal Mart is way cheaper!)

1/2 packet Splenda or other artificial sweetener

1/4 piece of graham cracker (one little section)

1 tsp. shredded coconut

 

Heat oven to 325* and toast coconut for 5 minutes.

Fold the Splenda and coconut extract into the Cool Whip.  Keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

Crush the graham cracker into little chunks, but not powder.

Take out the coconut and place it in a bowl to cool.

Layer the half the mousse, half of the graham gracker, and then the half of toasted coconut.

Finish in the same order with the rest of the ingredients.  Serve immediately.

Look how pretty it is!  And it’s so delicious.  I would eat it all day.

Nice.

I hope you guys like this recipe!  Let me know how it goes for you.

 

*Tips: Keep the rest of the Cool Whip in the freezer to keep making this recipe for weeks.

Half of this can be used for my other healthy dessert recipe coming soon!  Keep checking back.

 

Stay Serendipitous!

XOXO Sara
