Healthy Pumpkin Pie Recipe (Thanksgiving Food)

I have been waiting all year for some pumpkin pie! It's just so festive and reminds me of all things cozy and happy. So naturally, I volunteered to try to make my first pumpkin pie for my family's Thanksgiving dinner.


I looked up a ton of recipes to see if I could make a healthier version. You know me, I love sweets. If I can make my sweets in healthier versions, it's a win win! The problem with most of the healthy recipes I find is the list of exotic ingredients. I want a simple, short ingredient list I can buy at my local grocery or have Shipt deliver. So I've made my own version!



Ingredients:

  • 2 - deep dish pie crusts (I used Publix brand)

  • 2 - 15 oz cans of Pure Pumpkin (I used Libby's)

  • 2 - 12 oz cans of fat free evaporated milk (I used Nestle Carnation; also only used 1.5 cans)

  • 4 - Eggs (I used Jumbo)

  • 2 - tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 2 - tsp cinnamon

  • 2 - tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 C - Truvia Cane Sugar Baking Blend Pinch of salt

  • Optional: Sugar Free Whipped Cream (I used Land O' Lakes) + sprinkle of cinnamon on top



Directions:

  • Allow the pie crusts to sit until they are room temperature.

  • Preheat oven to 420.

  • In a large bowl, mix eggs until scrambled up.

  • Add pumpkin and evaporated milk (you don't have to use all of it if you like a thicker pie; I only used about half of the second can) Mix well (I used my hand mixer on low).

  • Add pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla, Truvia, and salt.


Pour into pie shells (I could not fit all of it into the shells! There was maybe 1/2 C left out).


Bake for 15 minutes at 420. Reduce temp. to 350 and bake for an additional 35-45 min (See if a butter knife comes out clean).


Once done, allow to cool for about an hour.


Cut you a cozy little slice and add some whipped cream!


Nutrition: If you cut each pie into 8 slices (excluding optional whipped cream):


1 slice = 164 calories, 22g carbs, 7g fat, 5g protein, 156mg sodium, 8g sugar


Happy Thanksgiving🦃🍂🧡


Don't forget to pin this pattern for later!




I hope you have enjoyed creating with me!
