How to Make the Best Easy and Healthy Pumpkin Pie

What makes this recipe both yummy and healthy at the same time is the secret ingredient – pumpkin! While sticking to a whole food diet during the holidays can seem difficult, it doesn’t have to be the case when you cook or bake with pumpkin. In fact mashed or puréed pumpkin is very versatile and can be used in all sorts of holiday recipes.

And when you use a mix of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, you can create the traditional tastes and aromas of many pumpkin-based Thanksgiving foods. And you can do so using solely whole ingredients with no unhealthy sugar or white flour. That’s what you’ll find in the following recipe for a tasty yet easy and healthy pumpkin pie.

More Than Just Pumpkin Pie

Now that you know what makes this easy and healthy pumpkin pie made with whole food taste so delicious, you can stick with whole food at Thanksgiving. And you can do it with more than just pumpkin pie. In fact, you can make smart substitutions for unhealthy ingredients in many of your favorite holiday recipes.

For example, instead of using all-purpose flour, you can substitute equal measurements of almond or coconut flour. Similarly, butter and oil be replaced with applesauce or mashed ripe bananas. Also, mashed dates, maple syrup and honey make flavorful replacements for any sugar. And you can swap out one egg with half a medium-sized mashed ripe banana or 1/4 cup of unprocessed applesauce.
