Remember when I was making Pumpkin Butter? Well, I also baked up an additional sugar pie pumpkin to use as pie filling and made some of Grandma’s Pie Crust so I could whip up a pie in no time – on a different day.
**To prep the pumpkin, I simply cut the top off, cut the rest in half and then scooped out the seeds and strings. I lined a cookie sheet with foil and placed the pumpkin halves on the sheet (skin side up). Baked on 350 for one hour. I then let the pumpkin completely cool on the counter, scooped it out from the peel and refridgerated it until I was ready to make my pie. If you don’t want to do all that, you can simply use canned pumpkin and follow the rest of the recipe.
Sugarless Pumpkin Pie
Prep Time: (once you have the pumpkin filling) about 15 min Cook Time: 1 hour at 350. Serves: 1 pie
1 Sugar Pie Pumpkin (Prepared as described above. Alternatively, use 1 cup canned pumpkin puree)
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Chai Concentrate (or plain water for less “spice”)
1/3 Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 tsp clove
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp lemon juice
[Feel free to play around with the spices for more savory, more spicey, or even add a touch of brown sugar for some extra sweetness]
In a food processor, puree the pumpkin until smooth and creamy. In a mixing bowl, combine the puree’d pumpkin, milk, chai, yogurt, eggs, spices and lemon juice. Blend until fully combined. (The yogurt and chai will look weird together at first, just keep mixing)
I suggest that you bake your pie crust for a couple minutes (less than 10) to get it a little golden before adding in the pie filling.
Once your crust is ready, fill with the pumpkin mixture and bake for about an hour. Bake until the pumpkin is stiff to the touch and crust is flakey and golden.
Enjoy! This is a fairly “healthified” version of pumpkin pie so don’t feel bad going back for seconds!
I actually had this pie in the oven on Tuesday night while doing my kettlebell workout - but by the time I finished up, showered, etc – I was more excited about the date with my pillow than my pumpkin pie. I finally had some last night though and it was delicious! I think pie tastes better cold anyway
