Love pumpkin pie? Hate the guilt? The preservatives of the store made brands? This is an easy to make and bake pumpkin pie, best of all using fat free milk, egg whites, and low fat pie crust cut the calories and fat more than in half! This tastes great and is excellent with fat free cool whip!!! Feel free to make it full fat if you dare, or add a little bit more spices for more of kick. Great for thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.
