Contributed by Diane S.
Here's a fluffy dessert that's not only low in fat, it's also especially
easy to make.
1 1.3-ounce envelope whipped dessert topping mix
1-1/4 cups cold skim milk
3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 4-serving-size package fat-free instant chocolate pudding mix
2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
orange peel, cut into thin strips (optional)
In a medium mixing bowl combine dessert topping mix and 1/2 cup of the milk.
Beat with an electric mixer on high speed about 2 minutes or until mixture
forms stiff peaks (tips stand straight). Set aside 1/4 cup of the whipped
Add the remaining milk, thawed concentrate, and pudding mix to remaining
topping. Beat on low speed just until mixed. Beat on medium speed about 2
minutes more or until well mixed. Spoon the mixture into 6 dessert dishes.
Cover and chill about 10 minutes or until set.
To serve, top with reserved whipped topping, chopped pecans, and if desired,
orange peel strips.
