Guilt Free Pumpkin Pie

 

Now it’s time for the best part of Thanksgiving dinner.  It really isn’t Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, right?  With this pie you have all of the creamy pumpkin filling but without all the fat and calories.  Plus you don’t have to worry about making a crust!  Win-win!

According to Runner’s World, one slice of traditional pumpkin pie has 316 calories and 14 grams of fat.  One slice of this pie has 55 calories and .6 grams of fat!

This pie is super easy to whip up.  It does need to firm up in the fridge for at least 6 hours so plan accordingly.  Top it with coconut milk whipped cream for a guilt free dessert.
