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.

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.

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.
