Healthy Pumpkin Pie

If your like me then your a HUGE fan of pumpkin pie! All these years I had imagined that pumpkin pie was a pretty healthy alternative in comparision to many other dessert options however, after I was informed of the calories and fat I became less intrigued with this pie. Pumpkin Pie you have failed me!!! In an attempt to satisfy my pumpkin pie love during the holidays my mom and I came across a crustless pumpkin pie recipe which we tried and found to be absolutely DELICIOUS.

You use splenda, egg whites, and non fat milk subsitutions to make the pie low fat and by doing so you get a delicious dessert at only 64 calories for 1/4 slice of a 9'' pie and 0 grams of fat compared to 320 calories for 1/8 slice of a 9'' pie.
