This lightened-up dessert from the original sent in by Kristi Linton of Bay City, Michigan makes an amazing after-dinner treat. Break out the spoons and make sure you get a bite, because this is one dessert that won't be around for long!

"This is super easy and you don't miss all the fat and sugar. This was even a hit with my young sons. You can easily change up the flavor by using different puddings etc."

"This has always been one of my family's favorite desserts so when I saw this makeover, I was elated. I use Fat Free, Sugar Free Lemon pudding rather than the chocolate and it is truly yummy."

"I made this for a family dinner and took the leftovers into work. Since then it's been requested for all of the functions. They always say I'm lying when I tell them it's a light version!!"

"My family loved this, especially my brother, who's diabetic. The only changes I made to the recipe is that I used sugar-free cheesecake flavored pudding instead of the vanilla. I added 2 tsp. of vanilla extract to the cream cheese/pudding mixture. I didn't have any regular cream cheese on hand, so I used half a package of light cream cheese (4 oz) instead."
