Recipe by Wishing Barbie
I made up this recipe and whipped it up the night before Thanksgiving, it was great! It's about as healthy as a pie can possibly be! Only problem was that my crust was soggy, but the packaging gave a suggestion to that, which I have included to keep yours from going soggy. plus it's delicious, low-fat and sugar-free. What more could you ask for in a pie?!
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin (about 1 3/4c)
- 8 ounces skim milk (has a slight taste) or 8 ounces low-fat soymilk (has a slight taste)
- 3 egg whites
- 2⁄3 reduced fat graham cracker crust (take off the sides of the crust and discard)
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda sugar substitute
- pumpkin pie spice
- 2 egg whites, for the crust
