HALLOWEEN!! : 'Cheaty' Pumpkin Crumble

Remember I suggested saving the pumpkin flesh from my pumpkin 'bowls' in my recipe earlier in the week? Well, this is the reason why - a really simple, low-propoint idea for a yummy little dessert!
These work out to 2pp/approx.110kcal each, or you can have two for 3pp/approx.220kcal!


So- this is the pumpkin flesh. Cover with cling film and microwave until soft and 'mashable'. This amount took two 5 minute bursts in the microwave. I didn't add any water.

Mash with a fork and add artificial sweetener and cinnamon to taste. I like it sweet and spicy, so I added 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sweetener.

Dollop into ramekin dishes while still hot.

Add 1 teaspoon 0% fat Greek yoghurt. Don't mix it in, just leave it as a blob. This counteracts the sweetness of the pumpkin and adds some creaminess as you eat it.
At this stage, the pudding is 0pp!
Choose an Alpen light bar in your favourite flavour. I love the Apple and the Chocolate/Orange variety.
(These are 2pp/70kcal each or 3pp/140kcal for two bars).

Break up the Alpen light bar into small, chunky pieces. They crumble very easily to form your topping.

Add to the pumpkin and yoghurt mixture in a generous layer. Tuck in!


Sweet, spicy, creamy and crunchy.


If you don't like pumpkin, try this with cooked, mashed apples or pears mixed with cinnamon.
