Even tho I ate jello puddings and Cool whip separately I never thought to put them together:

Not until I read a post on TwigandThistle Blog titled "Guilt Free Mousse" of course her photo's helped to get my attention as well

See what I mean? Got my attention all right. I got to thinking what else other than mousse in a cup could it be used for, I came up with putting it in a pie crust to make a delicious Chocolate cream pie, instead of putting more cool whip on the top of the pie allow each guest to put a dollop of cream on their individual piece. Fold two tablespoons of fat free cool whip into 60 calorie pudding gives you a 75 calorie dessert!
Add Banana slices, strawberries, white chocolate pieces, put it in a pretty glass and first put cool whip than the mousse and keep varying it for a pretty presentation. Use it as a filling in cupcakes or a cake, Add Amaretto for a grownup dessert. How about freezing it to make a popsicle. WOW, all this goodness from one inspired idea! Thanks Twig and Thistle!
