Pumpkin "Pie" - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 20
This recipe is certainly a keeper. I am pretty sure that over three or four days I ate this entire recipe by myself. My husband isn't a fan of pumpkin and my son didn't try this one. My daughter tried it and she said she didn't like it. I'm not sure I believe her! Anyway, in this case, I am not taking my family's opinions into consideration. They are not pumpkin pie lovers! If you like pumpkin pie and are looking for a lower calorie alternative, this is definitely the recipe to make!
In the future the only tweaks I would make would be to try this one out with a different sweetener. I've made one similar to this with granulated Stevia in the Raw and it was not good. Too much stevia can really make things bitter. I may give it a whirl with liquid stevia, which tends to be less bitter, or even monk fruit extract. I'll let you down if I do that. Splenda is just fine with me, but I do like to mix up my sweeteners just to keep all things in moderation, as they say!
