1 SmartPoint Pumpkin Pie In A Jar


It’s almost Thanksgiving and I’d be remiss if I didn’t share this favorite fall dessert!! Darin & I have been having it a couple times a week and it’s phenomenal!!

No matter if your on MyWW Blue💙, Purple💜 or Green💚, one piece of store bought pumpkin pie is about 14 SmartPoints. I like pumpkin pie as much as the next guy, but 14 SmartPoints?? Ouch!! I don’t think so!!

Our remake is 1 SmartPoint per generous serving, provides a helping of veggies, tastes great (especially at this time of year) and is full of natural fiber, so you’ll feel satisfied. Woohoooo🎉🎊🎉…SCORE!! But wait, there’s more (LOL)…..one tablespoon of fat free Cool Whip is zero SmartPoints👍🏼

I’ve posted this recipe in the past, but I had forgotten about it, so thought you might have too! Because we’ve been enjoying this low SmartPoints version of pumpkin pie for a couple of weeks, I’m going to easily be able to pass on the traditional pumpkin pie that will be served at our family Thanksgiving.

No matter what MyWW plan you’re on, it’s all about CHOICES. We can all have pumpkin pie, it’s just that I’d prefer to spend my 14 SmartPoints elsewhere!!

Simply Mix & Refrigerate!!!


1 Small Package of Sugar Free Cheesecake Jello Pudding (3 SmartPoints per box on all 3 MyWW Plans)

1 can of pumpkin solid packed pumpkin (0 SmartPoints on all 3 MyWW plans))

Pumpkin Pie Spice to taste

(Or simply use cinnamon and nutmeg if you don’t have the actual pumpkin pie spice blend.)

Combine all ingredients, scoop into jars OR spread evenly in a flat dish (see photo below) and refrigerate for at least an hour. Overnight is even better.

I added a couple of Teddy Graham’s because it looks cute, but they aren’t really worth the SmartPoints, in my opinion, so you may want to forgo them.

The jars are great for grab & go but the larger dish is nice for eating at home & serving others.

One last thing…if you decide to go the jar route, be sure to leave room for a zero point tablespoon of fat freeCool Whip! It really makes the dessert!

Try it and post a comment to let me know what you think! I love hearing from you!! When no one comments, I feel like I’m just writing to myself! Haha! Speak up, please😁

All is well❤️

    I made this and my mom and I loved it! She’s pretty particular about her desserts, so that’s high praise.

    Your newsletter is not only well read but looked forward to. Thank you for your efforts.
    Thank you for the recipe for the pumpkin mix. It is sooo good and filling. Yes, you can eat out of the mixing bowl, I know, I have eaten more pumpkin in 3 days than in my whole life. I have bulked it up further by layering a sliced banana and raspberries over it then a squirt of fat free whip cream. It sounds weird but try it.

    I just realized I have the perfect tiny white ramekins to serve this in! I think a few crushed teddy grahams on top might be good.

    Welcome to California! You are a great addition to the WW team and I’m happy you’re my workshop leader (you know it’s an adjustment). I’m excited you’re from my old neck of the woods–St. Charles and Geneva. It was fun celebrating 75 lbs with you today. I’m going to try this for Thanksgiving, as well as a slow cooker cranberry sauce from emilybites.com that I saw posted on the Central Valley WW FB page. So far it’s just me, myself, and I have Thanksgiving dinner, so I’m keeping it simple. If anyone else shows up, there will be enough to share. If not, leftovers!! Gonna make these for the family Christmas, too.

    How much if this is one serving? Or what is the capacity of the jar? I don’t have those jars and would rather just spoon out required serving in a bowl.

      The only ingredient that has SmartPoints is the sugarefree pudding mix. The whole box is 3 SmartPoints. Hope that helps! We make it both ways…it’s just as good in a bigger dish as it is in a jar. The jars are just easy to grab and go.

      Isn’t it funny, Cheryl?? I did too!! I have been trying low point cheesecake recipes from Pinterest with Greek yogurt with little success. They just didn’t taste good to me and they were A LOT of work, in my opinion. After a couple epic fails, this recipe came to mind and it fits the bill perfectly for us!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
