I've been trying to count points again. I haven't in quite awhile. Just a few weeks after I started the last time, I discovered I was pregnant with Birdy and that gives you a quick ticket out of "the program". Things have changed a lot since then–all these mobile tools that I can have on my iPhone make it almost impossible to have an excuse not to keep up with my food journal.
But one of my favorite sweet treats when I'm on Weight Watchers is a chocolate mousse dessert–self-named to make me feel fancy and sophisticated despite the fact that it took me all of four minutes to put together.
If you're related to me or you've ever eaten a meal in my home, chances are pretty good I've made this for you. It is simple, takes all of 3 ingredients (4 if you want to get super-fancy), and about five minutes of your time.
Serve it up in a sweet little bowl–these happen to be my faves–or a little glass dish, and you've got a pretty impressive riff on a yummy classic. Try it. I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.
MOMMYCODDLE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
1 packet fat-free, sugar-free JELLO Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups fat-free skim milk
6 ounces COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (in this recipe, I used the free version)
Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (if you're gonna get fancy)
Prepare the pudding according to the package directions. Before placing pudding in refrigerator, whisk in 6 ounces of COOL WHIP until well blended with pudding–no lumps. Place whole mix into refrigerator to chill and thicken. Spoon into cute bowls. Add a small dollop of COOL WHIP and a sprinkle of mini-chips. Serve and stand back and marvel at how easy this was and good it tastes.
(According to my rough calculations, a half cup serving of the chocolate mousse only costs you 2 points, if you're counting. Though I should note, that I didn't count the mini chips. Eating it straight from the bowl with a rubber scraper costs you many more than 2 points. Tempting. But not recommended.)

this used to be an all time favorite of mine – thanks for reminding me! i’m counting points, too (some days).
I also am on Weightwatchers counting points! It is nice to find other people who are. If you are in the community my name is ARKimble, would love to be friends on there!
Oooh, yum. I just went off WW and back onto counting calories. I never got round to going to meetings and it was just wasting money. At the end of the day, I guess it doesn’t much matter how I do it as long as I do it!
yum. I just went off WW and returning onto individuals. I never got circular to going to events and it was just spending cash. At the end of the day, I think it doesn’t much issue how I do it provided that I do it!
