"This dessert's coconut and creamy taste is irresistible! For the weight watchers this could be too much! You can add more sugar to this dish, according to your taste."

This was so good! I used a can of pumpkin puree instead of a whole pumpkin and reduced the amount of sugar a bit. The cardamon gives it a nice "chai" flavor. I keep telling myself it's low-fat, but I'm not really sure!

This was delicious! Everyone enjoyed it, including my kids. Following the advice of the other reviews I used less sugar (only half the amount called for). I also added 1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut to it to thicken it up a bit and then toasted some coconut with a little sugar to put on top. Fantastic!
