Ohh do I have a treat for you.  Y’all know how I love posting my Weight Watchers points for each one of my recipes, particularly because I’ve personally found success using the program and I know many others who have as well.  SO when Weight Watchers contacted me and offered to send me some of their yummy light cream cheese, I was so excited!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE recipes that call for cream cheese.  It adds so much flavor, has a great creamy consistency and can be used in many sweet and savory dishes.  The only problem is cream cheese can tend to be high in fat and calories so I’ve always tried to use it sparingly, but using Weight Watchers reduced fat cream cheese allows you to indulge a bit more and it tastes just as delicious!  It’s also low in sodium!

So since we’re enjoying this gorgeous Fall season {and y’all KNOW I have tons of pumpkin at my disposal} I chose to make a delicious pumpkin dip.  This literally takes seconds to whip up, 30 minutes to chill and tastes absolutely amazing with apples, banana slices, cinnamon pita chips or even spread on whole wheat bagels!  The possibilities are endless and its a great snack to bring to work to keep your diet in check.  Only 3 Weight Watchers points per serving!
Feel free to serve this at your next gathering, bring a few batches to your Sunday tailgate or, like I said, leave some in your fridge at work for a healthy snack.  Either way, I promise everyone will love you for this!Your welcome.

PS, I’m absolutely terrible at cutting apples {clearly} so don’t let my slicing skills deter you from making this dip, you’ll totally be missing out.  Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
