HEALTH TIPS

The original recipe used 140g of caster suger, to me that was a bit too much, so I reduced it to 80g which gave the pumpkin favour more space to shine through. If you’re tolerant to the aftertaste of sweetener you can try using Stevia instead to further reduce the calories. You can also experiment with cooking the pie without butter and pastry, or just do what I do and avoid eating the crust.

Both these methods combined will this down to less than 1,000 calories. YUM!

Please let me know if you have any questions and how you get along with the guide.
