Helpful hints

  • You can buy graham cracker crumbs or make your own by crushing 36 graham cracker squares.
  • To reduce the fat use Reddi-Wip® dairy whipped topping instead of heavy cream and skip step #6. Instead of spreading on pie, spray about 2 tablespoons on each serving right before it is served. Fat is reduced to 3 grams.

Frost on the Pumpkin Pie
CFranklin says:

I grew up eating sweet potato pies, never pumpkin pies and never wanted to try it. When I went on dialysis my son made this Pumpkin Pie. I must say it as good as the sweet potato pie. It's a staple in our house on holidays now. Everyone eats it, loves it and do not know it's a Davita recipe. It's rich and very tasty.

There is an inconsistency between the Ingredients & Preparation; 2/3 cup unsalted butter or melted margarine. I believe butter is better, margarine is a highly processed product. Dietitian comment: Thanks--the preparation notes now match the ingredient list for butter.

Frost on the Pumpkin Pie

What can be substituted for the 16 oz of frosting? I do not want to cook using a product that contains partially hydrogenated soybean oil (very unhealthy in my book). Also, I do not like the artificial food colourings in the ingredient list. Any healthy substitution is appreciated :- )Dietitian comment: You can make a homemade icing instead. Try the vanilla butter cream frosting at or search online for a recipe. This recipe does not contain artificial food coloring.
