“This recipe comes from, and I just tried it today. I can vouch for its deliciousness. It's very lowfat, but it tastes nearly as good as the high-fat counterparts that are traditionally served on and around Thanksgiving. If you're looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional recipe (8 oz. of which often contains over 400 calories and 20 grams of fat), try this.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel squash and cut into large chunks (removing seeds).
  3. Fill a large, microwave-safe dish with a half an inch of water.
  4. Place squash into dish and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for approximately 8 minutes (and drain).
  5. Squash should be tender enough to mash, but not fully cooked.
  6. With a potato masher, food processor or fork, mash squash.
  7. Measure out 2 generous cups, lightly packed, and place in an oven-safe baking dish.
  8. Add all ingredients except for marshmallows. Mix ingredients thoroughly, but do not over-stir; squash should still be pulpy.
  9. Allow to cook for 45 – 50 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven, and disperse marshmallows over top of pie.
  11. Return to oven for 5 minutes, until marshmallows begin to brown.
  12. Allow to cool.
