This healthy pumpkin pie custard is made without a crust, low carb, gluten and grain free!
This very popular recipe was orginially posted in October of 2012 and has been a huge pinning recipe during every fall season.
I felt it was due time to give this recipe some updated photos and also change it in one simple way.
Currently in life we are packing for a move to a small little country setting in the woods. We will still be in my homestate of Rhode Island, but the scenery from city to country will be remarkable!
The nearest store is about 20 minutes away. It’s going to take me some time to get used to that since I end up at the grocery frequently during the week.
Some times more like 3-5 times depending on if a recipe failed and I need more ingredients. Now I’m about 5 minutes from Whole Foods. I must learn to buy in bulk I suppose.
So being that this popular recipe needed a picture make over, now was the perfect time to do so. Les stress than recreating a brand new popular pumpkin recipe!
You can enjoy these little custards in the ramekin you bake them in or pop them ut upside down on a plate. Make sure you greased them well or they won’t be too pretty when inverted upside down. The good thing though is that you can cover them with some whipped cream!
Or if you need dairy free try some Dairy Free Whipped Cream on top or leave it without out, but be sure to chill them! Tastes much better than warm since I tried it both ways of course. 🙂
It’s the perfect little portion made in 7 ounce ramekins. Of course even if you decide to eat two, ( because they are so good!) the amazingly low calories won’t kill your calorie budget for the day!
Made without artificial sweeteners and only natural stevia, no aftertaste is evident at all. In fact my super picky husband and oldest son actually LOVE this custard, and hubby is always the first one to comment if he notices an aftertaste!
But of course you can use whatever sweetener you prefer really.
Here’s my conversion chart.
I had to keep one old picture because this is the one below that gets pinned the most!
- If I was just eating these I would use unsweetened almond milk, but my boys have a tree nut allergy.
- Other milk options would be unsweetened coconut milk or cashew milk.
- The orginal recipe used 1% milk and vanilla liquid stevia.
- The original recipe using the milk was 76 calories, fat: 6.7g, cholesterol: 125mg, sodium: 56mg, carbs: 7g, dietary fiber: 2g, sugars: 3g, protein: 5g.
- This is the exact filling I use for my pumpkin pie!
