Tasty Tuesday

Thanksgiving is over but that doesn't mean that you can't still enjoy some yummy pumpkin pie! Did you know that the average piece of pumpkin pie can have around 323 calories per serving (1/8)? Yikes! That can add up to a lot if you eat more than one slice....like me. Well, I hit the jackpot with the recipe I will share below. I forgot to take a picture, so I guess I'll have to remake the pie and update this post. :)

Adapted from Skinnytaste
Serving size: 8

Ingredients:
15 oz. canned pumpkin (puree not pumpkin pie filling!)
2 tablespoons light butter (I used Smart Squeeze. It has 5 calories in 1 tablespoon.)
1/4 cup Splenda
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350℉ 
  2. In a large bowl, beat pumpkin puree, butter, egg, egg whites, milk, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, splenda, and brown sugar until smooth.
  3. Spray a 9 inch pie pan with non-stick cooking spray, then pour mixture into pan.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool, then cut yourself a slice & enjoy! 
With the ingredients I used, I managed to slash the calories down to 90 per slice!  Keep in mind that the calories will differ depending on the ingredients you use. Miss the crust? I understand! I love crust. The great thing about this recipe is that it is still "skinny" if you add a crust. A pie crust (depending on which one you use), will add around 100 calories per slice. 190 versus 323 is still amazing!
