It probably would have been good if I had followed the recipe. But I didn't want the sugar so I used Spenda instead. As a result, it had a very nasty chemical taste.
MY 9 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, this recipe was perfect for thanksgiving, she was so happy!!! She can even have it for a snack with out extra insulin!!!
Low Carbs and No Gluten - what a deal!!! Perfect for our family!
OMG!!! This is SO good! Just when I wanted to throw in the towel and quit my low carb lifestyle, this saved the day! This is such an easy recipe and it is so good. I preferred it served cold (after chilling in the refrigerator for several hours). Next time I make this I may use only 1/2 cup of the Splenda Sugar Blend, 3/4 cup made it even a little too sweet for me. I highly recommend this recipe especially if you are trying to get through the holidays without eating the "real" pumpkin pie, you won't feel left out with this one!
Instead of baking this, I put it all into my small crockpot and cooked on high for one hour, then turned it to low for about another four hours while we went to the movies. I ussed fat-free milk and apple spices( threw out my old pumpkin ones) Serve it warm with a tsp of amaretto syrup over the top of each serving, then dusted with finely chopped walnuts. Ye, I made changes, but you were my inspiration,dojemi.
so easy to make. Low in carbs, sweet and of course--pumpkin. Any tips on keeping the top smooth rather than harder?
I replaced the pumpkin with squash from my garden because we have a ton of it this year...really an actual ton. Even after giving a bunch away I'm still going to have more than I can use in the next year (that is fine, maybe next year won't be such a good year...). I replaced two of the eggs with egg whites, the Splenda with 1/2 c. brown sugar, and 4 tsp. truvia, forgot the salt...oops, and used plain fat free yogurt (1/2 c.) instead of the cream. We really like spices so I may use a bit more next time...still it was great cold or warm. I'm making batch #2 today...we ate it for lunch yesterday.
Love it!! And it's SO easy! I've been low-carbing for almost a year now and I've made this recipe four times already! My husband and 7-year old daughter (who don't eat LC) also love it! This recipe is a keeper!
Followed directions except I didn't have clove or pumpkin spice to sub with so I added a bit of nutmeg. Probably would have been even better if I had the right spices but overall, I was very pleased with it. We used fresh pumpkin. For someone following a low carb diet...this is a great replacement for all the Halloween/Thanksgiving treats everybody else is eating !
FABULOUS!!!!! This was so great - thank you!!! Made it for Halloween and will be making it for Turkey day and Christmas if not again in between!!
