Let’s be basic Foodies – Pumpkin Pie and Fall!

Let’s start with how it is now fall. We all know pumpkin spice is in, so let’s start with a healthy dessert option – pumpkin pie.  What makes this pie healthier you say? This pie consists of 5 ingredients for the filling and 6 ingredients for the crust. Overall, this is pretty good! If you look at the ingredients below, you will see there is nothing processed.  Thanks to sarahfit.com, the recipe and video are now available here!

Let cool completely. Combine all filling ingredients. Blend well until it is a smooth like consistency. Pour into crust. Cook on high at 425 for 5-7 minutes.
