Very yummy! South Beach Friendly for Phase 2&3. I looked and didnt see one quiet like this. Great for your everyday dinner, or for a holiday meal. This recipe serves 2, use the multiplier provided to adjust the serving size.

I used the multiplier to make it for 12 people. Tastes just like the filling for pumpkin pie with the healthy benefit of no form of any sugars or flours had to be used. Did add more milk to make it run through my blender. A 10+ out of 10.

Yumm, very tasty. I actually made double the amount, the first as written for hubby and myself and the second for my eight month old so I omitted the pecans and used more buttermilk and margarine, she loved it! Thanks CookbookCarrie!
