What Makes This Recipe Healthy?
To make this recipe healthier, we use unseasoned pumpkin puree. The difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling are the ingredients. Although they’re both canned products and their packaging looks similar, they can’t be used interchangeably. Pumpkin puree doesn’t have anything added to it, but pumpkin pie filling contains pumpkin spice and sugar. When shopping for pumpkin puree, check the label on the can for 100% pumpkin.
We also use reduced-fat cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. Swapping in reduced-fat cream cheese for regular saves you approximately 50 calories and 3 grams of saturated fat per slice.
