Ingredients:

1/2 cup warm filtered water
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups nonfat milk (skim)
1 (8 ounce) package light cream cheese, softened
1 (3 ounce) package ladyfingers
2 cups frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

Yield: 12 servings


In small bowl, combine the water and coffee granules; stir to dissolve the coffee. Set aside 1 tbsp of the mixture.

In a large bowl, beat pudding mix and milk until thickened; stir in the coffee mixture(not the reserve).

Add the cream cheese and beat until smooth.

Split the ladyfingers and line the bottom of an 8-inch square glass baking dish with half of them.

Drizzle the ladyfingers with the 1 tbsp reserved coffee mixture.

Spoon the pudding mixture evenly over the ladyfingers.

Place the remaining ladyfingers on top of the pudding and top with whipped topping.

Sprinkle with the cocoa, then cover and chill for 2-4 hours, or until ready to serve.
