Low Fat Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Fiona Haynes
Most of the fat in pumpkin pie is in the crust. Here's a great no-crust, no-bake pumpkin pie without all the fat. This makes a great low fat option for Thanksgiving.

Prep Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 19 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 1-ounce envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups fat-free evaporated milk, divided
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 15-ounce can pure pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preparation:

Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, sprinkle gelatin in water. Leave to stand for 5 minutes.

Pour 1 cup of fat-free evaporated milk into a small saucepan and heat until almost boiling. Remove from heat and whisk into gelatin. Don’t worry if it the gelatin has hardened, the hot milk will liquefy it. Stir in remaining cup of evaporated milk, sugar, canned pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla extract. Stir until well blended.

Pour pumpkin mixture into pie plate. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Serves 8.

Pretty Good and Works for My Diet, Member AnninDC

This turned out pretty well. You really have to let it chill overnight or it will have the texture of soft pudding. I made mine in a square pyrex. I also used 1/2 the brown sugar and added splenda. I have some small bits of condensed milk in mine, probably from not stirring up the unheated condensed milk well enough before pouring it in. It might not be 100% like normal pumpkin pie, it really does approximate pumpkin pie filling in my opinion. I'd give it a 90%. I'm on a strict diet for health reasons, and many 'healthy' desserts aren't healthy enough for my diet. This dessert is both guiltless and tasty.
