100 Calorie Dessert in an Instant!

Did you just realize that you didn't make a dessert?  Need a dish to bring to a potluck?  Can't figure out how to pass off a supermarket pie as your own?  Don't worry, here is a dessert in a flash.  It's easy to make and has only 100 calories per serving.  Perfect for any diet, this luscious mousse has a healthy dose of vitamin A, beta carotene and fiber, yet is low in sugar, fat and calories.  A crunchy gingersnap is a great garnish.  Thank Marlene Koch, RD, author of: Eat What You Love: More than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat & Calories.
