When it comes to Thanksgiving, there's one kind of dessert that's bound to star in your spread: pie. And we mean lots of it. Even if you're committed to staying on track on the biggest food holiday of the year, you can still savor all the goodness of this American favorite thanks to these healthy pie recipes.
It simply wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a slice of pumpkin pie. This Slimmed Pumpkin Pie recipe ensures that you'll never have to go without. With a few smart substitutes, this healthy riff on the seasonal favorite retains what we love most about pumpkin pie: the buttery crust and creamy, spiced pumpkin filling.
The words "double" and "chocolate" don't typically follow the word "healthy," but Ellie Krieger's wholesome recipe is here to change that. Her classic, creamy Double Chocolate Pudding Pie is a healthy dish that boasts double the chocolate, yet half the fat, of the original.
Fall is all about pumpkin, and this creamy Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie gives you yet another healthy way to enjoy it. This cool take on traditional pumpkin pie is made with vanilla yogurt and sets up in the freezer just like an ice cream cake.
Not only is Ree Drummond's Flat Apple Pie with Perfect Pie Crust healthier than your average slice, it's also an easy grab-and-go dessert; it doesn't require a pie pan, and you can slice it up like a pizza.
On arguably the most-caloric day of the year, it's a wonder how Ellie's Banana Cream Pie totals only 215 calories per serving. With velvety vanilla pudding and sliced bananas layered into a lightened-up graham cracker crust, it's a special dessert that's rich and creamy yet low in fat.
