Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for family, friends and food; lots and lots of food! So, instead of over indulging this year why not try a new and healthy twist on a traditional favorite. You will be glad you did.
8 ounces low-fat cream cheese (room temperature)
3/4 cup of canned pumpkin (unsweetened, unsalted)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl by hand or with an electric mixer (medium speed). Serve with apple slices or Ginger Snaps, which are not as healthy but are really good!
Our family’s traditional Thanksgiving involves about 50-100 people. Don’t worry, we gather and give thanks at a nearby farm; a very large farm. We also cook a pig for the main event and everyone brings a side dish to share. You do the math; with everyone bringing a side dish, or more than one in most cases, there is a lot of “sharing” to do! Having a healthy choice throughout the day is a very welcome change of pace in between the always tasty hash and rice and the decadent seven layer chocolate cake!
So, enjoy your Thanksgiving this year and don’t forget to count your blessings; and your fewer calories with this yummy dish.
