Lightened Up Sweet Potato Pie and a Giveaway!


While flying home this week, I was paging through the latest issue of Healthy Cooking, when the recipe for this delectable pie caught my eye...and although the nutritional stats were decent as it was written in the magazine, I knew I could swap out a few ingredients to make it even more diet friendly.   Lucky for me, I had some leftover sweet potato mash from a dinner I made last week already in the fridge and a Keebler, Ready Crust, Reduced Fat Graham Pie Crust in the pantry! If you cannot find the reduced fat pie crust, you can buy a regular one, but this will increase the point+ value by one per each slice. 

This pie will not disappoint.  It is a lovely twist on a traditional pumpkin pie and would be a great addition to your holiday table.  It is just spicy enough and not too sweet. It comes in at 6 points+ for a generous slice...which is 1/8th of a 9" crust.  Top it with a dollop of fat free cool whip if you like!

  4. I have never had sweet potato pie but it looks delicious!

    Congratulations on your blog anniversary! You do a great job with your posts and the recipes you share are wonderful!

    I have way too many fun kitchen gadgets to choose one favorite but I do love my chefs knife and use it every day. My little mini xoxo 4 tablespoon measuring cup is used all the time. What would I do without a garlic press and I must have rubber spatulas in a variety of sizes.

    Things on my want list are a pepper mill and a salt mill, large white platter, new water glasses and a new rice cooker.
