JANE's Story

I love sweet potato pie but needed one I could eat on my "no sugar added" eating plan. I've served this every Thanksgiving and my sons like it just as well as the sugared kind.

Ingredients

2 c
mashed sweet potatoes
1 c
splenda
1/2 stick
butter
2
beaten eggs
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
ginger
1/2 tsp
nutmeg
1 c
milk (can use skim nicely)
1
9 in unbaked pie shell
1
container of sugar free cool whip

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
Put all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix with beater. Pour in pie crust and bake 35-45 minutes. Use the toothpick method to check doneness.
Take out and let cool completely. Put a layer of Sugar Free Cool Whip over it before serving.
2
NOTE: USE ONLY FRESH SWEET POTATOES, not canned. Canned usually has sugar in them. To cook sweet potatoes, peel 5 medium potatoes and place all of them in large zip lock bag. Cook in microwave with bag sealed for 7-8 minutes on high. Bag will expand but it won't explode. Poke potatoes with fork to check tenderness. Mash with beater immmediately but let cool before putting in the recipe.

I made this tonight so my father in law would have his favorite pie on Thanksgiving without the sugar because he too is diabetic....my 7 year old daughter hates sweet potatoes but was intrigued with making them into a pie and what do you know? She loves it too...And I made one for my dad as well who is not diabetic but has to eat healthy following a quintuple bypass a few years ago...Great Recipe!!!

I use Agave in some of my baking recipes and it is perfect. But I will not use any artificial sweeteners including splenda. It is not good for you. But that is just me, I am diabetic also, managing for for 20 years. I learn to eat and cook with fresh ingredients, natural, portion control, and moderation will allow you to freely make good food choices. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I tried the recipe with 2/3 cup of agave nectar instead of 1 cup of Splenda. I also didn't add the milk since agave is a liquid. It came out prefect! My husband & I are very picky about sweet potato pie and we love it. I'm diabetic so this is my first time making it sugar free. I wanted to enjoy my favorite Thanksgiving pie this year. Thanks!

I'm so glad you found this. I eat just like you for the same reasons. My family has a history of diabetes and I eat like I am one,but I'm not. There are other sugar free recipes on justapinch. They're really good, too. Let me know how your pie turned out.

Thank you, Jane Louise, for sharing your recipe for this sugar free sweet potato pie. I've been searching for sweet potato pie recipes. When I found this recipe. I was delited. I love sweet potato pie and wanted to be able to make one for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My son-in-law is a diabetic and this will be a recipe to make special for him to eat. I come from a family with a history of diabetics within my father & mother's family. My father was a diabetic and three of my brother as well. I'm not wanting to become a diabetic. So I watch what I eat very closely. I am hoping if I eat the right foods. I might be lucky enough not to become a diabetic or at least keep the diabetic genes at bay for as many years as possible. So far at age 64 I have not become one. (Knock on wood.) ....I will not tell my son-in-law what type of pie I've made for him. Nor the rest of his family, until which time they have eaten their desserts. LOL! I don't want them to realize what they going to eat for a pie. Sweet potato pie looks almost identical to squash pie, which they love. Want to see if they notice the differents in the two pies. I hope they will love this pie and that my daughter will make this pie for her husband in the future. Thanks, again, for sharing your recipe. :)
