This is like many of the sugar free desserts out there that just don't taste so good. My first difficulty was finding a store that stocked fat free sugar free instant vanilla pudding (I finally bought 4-1.5 oz and 1-1 oz packages). As far as the recipe itself, 2 cups of milk was too little. The consistency was just nasty until I added about another cup. The pudding/milk/cream cheese mixture itself was alright, but nothing special. Next, I used an entire 7 oz package of lady fingers because 3 oz wasn't enough. Last, you better use a larger dish than 8x8 or your dessert will be overflowing like mine. Funny that the picture posted looks like a 13x9 baking pan...

My family didn't really like this too much, they said the flavor was a little too strong, the coffee was overpowering, so I would add a little less and then taste before adding the entire thing. Also, the measurment for the vanilla pudding was confusing, there was no box that size, and I would've have to use 7 boxes to get the equivalent! I used 2 of the small boxes, and it seemed to work ok, but I don't know if that is why the taste didn't work out.

For a nice variation, you can make this with chocolate or vanilla wafer cookies. I used a couple 100-calorie snack packs.
