Pumpkin Layer Dessert {THM}

My “Trim Healthy Mama” section of the blog was nearly starving so I’m grateful to Charlene for feeding it again and keeping it alive! This Pumpkin Layer Dessert comes to us just in time for fall! Its a beautiful time of the year with the leaves changing colors to shades of yellow, orange, and red. This dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser! You trim and healthy, fit ladies are going to love this.

You won’t find a THM Pumpkin dessert like this one anywhere else because it is original with Charlene. She was in the kitchen experimenting one day and bang! this was the result.

She’s amazing like that.

Oh, and just to let you local ladies in on a little secret of hers…. she’s in the process of opening a shop with Trim Healthy Mama products. She’s in love with the new “Gentle Sweet” sweetener and that will soon be available through her along with many other healthy things. Tired of paying shipping?   Her shop is just a hop-and-a-skip away. More pictures and details to come.

“GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO BAKE.” so bake away!
