I created this recipe for Crustless Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with No Added Sugar as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SplendaSavvies #SweetSwaps
It is the start of the most wonderful time of the year. It is also the start of the “10 pound weight gain” season, but it doesn’t have to be. One thing I try to teach people is that you do not have to give up your favorite food or taste to reduce calories. Every once in a while I will get a comment like “Why don’t you just eat normally on Thanksgiving?”. Umm, normal?? Another favorite is “Thanksgiving is not a day for dieting”. That particular one drives me insane. First of all, it is so demeaning to people with medical conditions that must eat healthy every single day to survive. Second, you are basically saying my food does not taste good. My response is always, “If you cannot tell the difference in taste, why would you want to consume extra calories?” Go on, tell me. I really want to hear it! You really want to gain 10 lbs this season?
It is so easy and so delicious to eat healthfully during Thanksgiving. I am forever thankful that we are now almost 5 years past my husband’s heart attack, and he is still going strong. Thanksgiving is a time to remember all that you are thankful for, and that is top of my list. This Crustless Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with No Added Sugar fits right into our life. I’ve taken an old Thanksgiving favorite, Pumpkin Pie, and made it a little healthier. Plus a little more fun with some bourbon. I took my Mom’s advice for the best Pumpkin Pie and doubled the spices. She decides if her pumpkin pie has enough cinnamon by it’s color. She wants it brown not orange. It is important to listen to your Mom and do as she says. I’ve also eliminated the sugar. Bye, bye sugar. You won’t be missed. I used SPLENDA® Natural Stevia Sweetener instead. Yes, they are making SPLENDA® with stevia now! I like it because it does not have that bitter aftertaste of other stevia products. They also do not use preservatives, added color or flavors. It is even made with non-GMO ingredients.
I would be happy to serve this Crustless Bourbon Pumpkin Pie to my family. After all it has no added sugar, it is low carb, low calorie, low fat and just plain delicious. What in the world could be wrong with that? I am saying “NO” to the 10 lb. weight gain this year. I hope you are too. You can find lots of other recipes using SPLENDA® Natural Stevia on their website.
