Before you’re even asked what you’ll bring for Thanksgiving dinner, make it known that you’re in charge of the apple pie. This recipe, made without a crust, is one of the most delicious desserts you’ll taste this holiday season. Without the having to complete with the flavors (or the challenges) of a crust, the apples take center stage. Coupled with a sweet crumble you’ve got an easy-to-make holiday recipe that won’t break the calorie bank. Consider topping with a little low-calorie whipped cream or ice cream for some holiday decadence. Enjoy!
Pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving go hand-in-hand. The good news is that pumpkin is a low-calorie vegetable that’s loaded with nutrients. The bad news is that we usually pair pumpkin with an excessive amount of sugar when we serve it during the holidays. The solution? Less sugar and smaller portions. These pumpkin pie bites weigh in at ninety-two calories per serving, which is a fraction of the caloric total of most pumpkin pie slices. And these bites are so delicious that you’ll literally only need a few to feel completely satisfied. Enjoy!
Not only can you have your pie, but you can eat it too with this month’s Recharge Card – a healthy protein shake featuring everyone’s favorite seasonal flavor, pumpkin.
