I'd like a recipe for pumpkin pie for a diabetic. Also has anyone ever tried doing a Mock Apple Pie with Splenda?
Peggy from Oak Grove, MO
Peggy, My husband is diabetic and I make the pie on the back of libbys pumpkin. I only exchange the regular sugar for splinda. It tastes just like regular pumpkin pie. Joyce
I wonder if you are the same Peggy I used to know in Oak Grove years ago. She had several daughters, one named Darlene who became a nurse.
1 small box of sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix (dry)
15-oz can of pumpkin (not pie mix)
4-oz cool whip free (1/2 of an 8-oz tub)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup milk, skim or 1%
Combine all ingredients. Put in small dessert dishes. When ready to serve top with more cool whip.
What about Stevia? It's natural and I've heard it's a suitable sweetener for diabetics.
