"Nice way to use up that half can of pumpkin. I did not have soy milk, so used skim. Maybe just a little to much spice for me and I generally like these types of spices."

"Ugh. This was not a chiffon, more like a thick pudding. With overly-chemical sweetness which is due to using a 4-serving pudding mix for only 2 servings I would guess. I would rather make my own pudding from scratch. I will not make this again."

"This recipe was very good. My son loved it. I did make it again to use the rest of the pumpkin in the can. I didn't use the vanilla wafers. We put a dab of non-dairy topping on instead."

"The high sodium is from the instant pudding mix. 1 (1/2 cup serving) has 300 mg sodium. Since this recipe is only 2 servings, it is actually 2 servings of pudding, plus whatever sodium is in the pumpkin, soy milk & vanilla wafers.

Either the # of servings is wrong, or this is not really a healthy desert."

"I have not made it because it seems high in sodium. Why?"

"I have not made this yet but it does sound more like "pumpkin pudding" than "pumpkin chiffon dessert." Maybe if you added some fat-free frozen (thawed) whipped topping, you would get that light and airy texture you are expecting out of this dessert."

"I agree with 77hummer. When I think chiffon, I think even lighter/ airier -- like whipped cream or whipped egg whites folded into the pumpkin."

"Sounds like you end up with Pumpkin pudding. Jello makes a pumpkin pudding. It's great."
