Lemon Mousse--Weight Watchers

"Hey, you weight watchers--0 points for 1/2 cup--I just got this in my e-mail from my daughter who got it from a patient and now I'm passing it on to you. You may already know about it but it looks good and it is free points. I know everyone is looking for something that tastes like normal. Also, below in the direction there are variations of other flavors and ideas."

    Light, creamy and oh so good, enjoyed by everyone and by me as it was on plan, with the new plan I calculated at 2 points still well within my point allowance. I did only have one box of lemon so used orange as my 2nd box and come out tasting like an orange creamsicle. Can just imagine how good other flavors would also be

    I just calculated this and it is actually now 2 points per serving.

    This is a GREAT dessert! I added 8 packets of splenda w/fiber to sweeten it to suit my taste buds. The final product was 10 cups---my calculations showed that it was a little less than a point per cup. Hmmmmm---I can't help but wonder what this would be like in strawberry? I will let you know once I find out! Thanks Mimi!!!

    Delicious, easy, light and refreshing! I added fresh raspberries to the top when serving. I had a difficult time getting the gelatin mixture and cool whip to come together, but it was fine after a little more time in the fridge. Thanks you Mimi!
