If you’re looking for the easiest possible dessert to whip up for Thanksgiving, it doesn’t get any simpler than pumpkin pie. If you can open a can, you can make pumpkin pie. And unlike other Thanksgiving desserts, it’s relatively healthy (or at least it can be). Pumpkin, like all orange foods, is a rich source of beta carotene, which your body converts to vitamin A. One slice of our pumpkin pie provides 137% of the daily value of vitamin A.
But of course, this is dessert, so it has to be delicious. Below are a few tips for making a healthier (and tasty) pumpkin pie. On average you’ll save 24 calories, 5 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat with our healthier recipe, compared to traditional versions.
