Oh my goodness! I made this last night for our Thanksgiving dinner this evening. My DB, his adult son and daughter, and my neighbor are all diabetic. Instead of using regular pudding, I used sugar free pudding. I also used skim milk, low fat cream cheese, and low fat Cool Whip. We couldn't find Oreo crusts, so we used a chocolate cookie crust. I did not put the Cool Whip on until I was ready to serve. What a great hit this was! My stepdaughter thought she would try it using crushed Nilla wafers as a crust. She also came up with the an idea to possible use fat free vanilla pudding instead of powder sugar to cut down even more on the sugar. This one is a keeper! Thank you, Chef 167408!
