Pumpkin Chiffon Pie | THM: S

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and we’re feasting on this incredibly delicious Pumpkin Chiffon Pie while we spend some time with family and friends, reflecting on all the undeserved gifts God has given us.

You, dear blog reader, are on the list of people I am thankful for. Thanks for your love and support over the past year of posting Trim Healthy Mama-friendly recipes regularly. You keep me inspired and I have not once received an unkind comment or negative feedback. That means a lot to me, especially in this day and age where everyone is entitled to speaking their mind and the anonymity of the Internet can bring out the worst in people. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful audience and don’t take you for granted.

Thank you!

But, back to other important things…like this Pumpkin Chiffon Pie!

I’m thankful for this pie, too! Why?

  • It’s so good. We like it even better than traditional pumpkin pie.
  • It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, and low-carb.
  • It makes enough for the whole family.
  • It’s easy. (THM beginner, you can do this and it will turn out great, I promise!)
  • It can be made ahead of time.
  • It feels light and fluffy.
  • It’s full of holiday flavor (read: pumpkin).
  • It doesn’t use any special ingredients.

Everything you need to make this pumpkin chiffon pie is probably in your fridge and pantry:

That’s it!

Keep in mind that this Pumpkin Chiffon Pie is best made the day before. It should sit overnight in fridge before adding the whipped cream topping (you can leave that part off, if you want), so it can set properly and allow the flavors to develop.

Yield: 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • CRUST
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp xylitol
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • FILLING
  • 1 packet Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 3/4 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup xylitol
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 15-ounce can pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • GARNISH
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp xylitol
  • cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 350 F. In a saucepan, melt butter and sweetener together until xylitol is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in almond flour. Bake @ 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. Cool.
  2. To make the filling, sprinkle gelatin over 3 Tbsp of water in a large bowl. Set aside and let it "soften." Combine half & half, 1/2 cup xylitol, yolks, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture bubbles. Carefully pour over gelatin in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Let it cool for 30-40 minutes at room temperature, stirring frequently so it doesn't set.
  3. In another bowl, beat 3/4 cup whipping cream until stiff. Fold whipped cream into cooled pumpkin mixture. Pour over crust. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight.
  4. for the garnish, beat 1 cup of whipping cream and 3 tbsp of xylitol together until stiff. Spread on top of the pie. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Notes

This pie is delicious with or without the whipped cream topping.

  1. Your email this morning was sweet Jacinda…I feel blessed to have found YOU! You are so right about the Internet bringing out the worst in some posters. I’m thankful to hear you’ve not experienced that. I’m so very grateful for all you share with us all! My husband & I love pumpkin pie. I can’t wait to make this. It looks amazing! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Thank you for this recipe! I’ll try it today and hopefully I can forego the traditional pumpkin pie that my family will be eating instead.

    I have the Great Lakes Gelatin. What measurement of that would I use instead of the Knox gelatin?

  3. This looks so tasty! You are my main go-to source for THM food . . . thank you for all your hard work! Also love your minimalism ideas for our home ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This looks delicious. My sister is allergic to almonds, what other flour would be a good fit for this pie? And would it be the same amount as what is in your recipe for almond flour? Thank you so much!!

  5. Hi there! I’m wondering if you powder your xylitol in a coffee grinder or if you use the full granulated version. This looks wonderful – I’m excited to try it!

  6. Oh my goodness what a wonderful new treat. My son-in-love made a point to compliment me on it. So I let him know that it was THM beneficial because up until now he wasn’t sold on the plan recipes. I think he’s changing his mind. Thanks

  7. Delicious! Another family favorite from Jacinda!! We tried this in July and ate it for breakfast. It felt like the day after Thanksgiving to be eating pumpkin pie for breakfast! The best part was no sugar crash afterward. We paired it with fried eggs and it was a nice meal. Next time I’ll put a little less sugar in the whipped topping, mine had erythritol in it and I could really feel the cool texture on the roof of my mouth.

  8. Looking to make this for Thanksgiving this wknd. Couple questions: the gelatin dissolved with hot or cold water? A 540 ml can of pumpkin the right sz?

    Thank you
