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.

When I first read the directions, I thought oh no I am going to have to boil the potatoes. I was very unsure of the zip lock bag instructions. Wow they worked great! It cuts the time down and keeps you from having watery potatoes. Thanks for sharing.

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!
