Pumpkin Pie (In a Mug)
If you’ll be feasting in your humble dorm room abode rather than at grandma’s, this recipe is the perfect way for you to get your pumpkin pie fix. Combine pumpkin puree (available at Whole Foods) and simple ingredients you already have in your fridge to create this dormified pumpkin pie in just 10 minutes.
Healthy Pumpkin Pie?!
That’s right. Cutting out the crust, using pumpkin instead of pumpkin pie filling, and Truvia instead of sugar makes this pie just 420 calories. Guilt-free deliciousness.
A Piece of Cake
No, really. If pie isn’t your thing, you can still top off Thanksgiving dinner with this modified version. Combine cake mix, pureed pumpkin, and instant vanilla pudding for a recipe that can double as breakfast coffee cake – and another excuse to eat dessert for every meal.
