Canned Pumpkin Puree Or Fresh Pumpkin Puree?
Almost all Thanksgiving dessert recipes include pumpkin purees. From brewing the ever-popular pumpkin spice latte to making a simple pumpkin cake, pumpkin purees are needed to give these Thanksgiving treats a genuine pumpkin taste. And what’s not to love? Pumpkin puree adds creaminess and a hint of sweetness to this dessert while adding healthy nutrients.
If you’ve been making pumpkin desserts for a while, the question of whether you should use canned pumpkin puree or fresh pumpkin puree might’ve crossed your mind. Creating your own pumpkin puree creates different results depending on the type of pumpkin you use. No, it’s not the type you use to make jack-o-lanterns. But, baking pumpkins or sugar pie pumpkins are the recommended type of pumpkins to use when making pumpkin puree.
Pumpkins are naturally starchy and sweet. If you love thick and velvety pies, pumpkin pies with fresh pumpkins are the right choice for you! If you also prefer subtle sweetness on your desserts, fresh pumpkins work great as they tend to have little sweetness. But using canned pumpkin purees for our pie works great too, just like what we did in this recipe!
In this diabetic pumpkin pie recipe, we’re using canned pumpkin puree for added flavors. Aside from the classic pumpkin pie color that canned pumpkin purees give, it also helps us achieve that silky texture for our pumpkin pie.
In addition, the mildly sweet flavor of canned pumpkin purees best complements our aromatic spices. The silky texture and perfect blend of flavors make our healthy pumpkin pie more tempting and luscious. Now, onto our creamy pumpkin pie recipe!

How To Make Sugarless Pumpkin Pie
Get your Thanksgiving sweet fix with this guilt-free Sugarless Pumpkin Pie Recipe and enjoy a rich and smooth filling in bright pumpkin flavor on a crisp and tender pie crust.
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Grease your preferred pie tin with cooking spray, preferably a 9-inch springform tin.
Dust your working area with flour and roll out your pie crust.
Lift the pie crust with your rolling pin and place it into your pie tin. Gently press down to stick into the pie tin. Trim any excess as necessary and store it for future use. Set aside your pie crust in a chilled area.
Combine the pumpkin puree, sugar substitute, cinnamon, ginger cloves, and salt. Gradually stir in the coconut milk and eggs.
Pour your mixture into the chilled pie shell and transfer to the oven. Bake your pie for 40 minutes or until your cake tester comes out clean.
Once done, transfer to cooling racks and allow to cool down completely.
Portion your pie based on your preference. Serve immediately or chill until serving.
Don’t confuse canned pumpkin puree with pumpkin pie mix. The latter is already sweetened and flavored.

Commonly Asked Questions
Why are my pies different in color even when I’m using the same recipe?
The color of your pumpkin pie will differ depending on the canned pumpkin puree that you’re using. It can go from golden to orange and brown. But it should taste the same. Pumpkin pies using canned pumpkin puree usually have darker orange hues while using fresh pumpkin would make lighter pies.
How long does pumpkin pie last?
If stored in the fridge, your homemade pumpkin pie can last for 2 to 4 days. But if you want to keep it a little longer, store your pumpkin pie in the freezer and it’ll last for 2 months. If you decide to make your pie the day before, remove your pumpkin pie from the freezer and let it defrost on your fridge uncovered for 12 hours. We don’t recommend thawing it at room temperature to avoid making it soggy.
How to reheat pumpkin pie
To reheat your pumpkin pie, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F then put your pie on a cookie sheet and lightly cover it with foil. 9-inch pumpkin pies take 15-20 minutes to reheat.
