Pumpkin pie is my fave holiday dessert! Is it even Thanksgiving (or any holiday for that matter), without it? Not in my world. If you are trying to stay on track and want to enjoy pumpkin pie, you will love this Weight Watchers Crustless Pumpkin Pie. It's 3 WW points.
A piece of traditional pumpkin pie is typically 14 WW points, Not only is this crustless pumpkin pie low WW points, it's low-carb and gluten-free has fewer calories, and has no artificial sweeteners or sugar substitutes, so it's a healthy no crust pumpkin pie. This recipe is especially popular during the holiday season.
You know how sometimes when you have ice cream you want a cone and sometimes you just want the ice cream? Well, this is the same thing.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE crust, especially my No Fail Pie Crust (Cold Water Pastry), However, I don't always want all the calories and carbs that come with pie crust. Sometimes I just want pumpkin pie filling and this No Crust Pumpkin Pie (also known as Impossible Pumpkin Pie) is perfect for those times! In fact, it's so perfect that you won't even miss the crust.
I have been following the Weight Watchers program for 20 ish years. I'm not a WW representative, I just believe in the program because it mirrors my own healthy balance philosophy. Weight Watchers simply provides you with the tools to be able to accurately track how much you should eat of what foods, in order to achieve that balance. And it's great for those of us who are obsessed with food - we still get to think about it all the time, but in a healthier way!

🍰Weight Watchers Desserts
I started creating my own Weight Watchers recipes (making dishes lighter and healthier) when I found a dish I liked, but was super high in points. But it was when I noticed a shift to artificial sweeteners that I was really motivated to start creating my own WW dessert recipes. Artificial sweeteners were not even 'a thing' when I first started Weight Watchers back in the day. And I cannot stand the taste of them or how those sugar substitutes make me feel. So if you feel the same way, check out my other Weight Watchers Dessert Recipes (WW dessert recipes) without artificial sweeteners! You'll especially love this WW friendly Healthy Old-fashioned Banana Cream Pie with Graham Cracker Crust!

❔Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can make this no crust pumpkin pie in advance, but I wouldn't make it more than a day ahead - it's not as springy and gets a little spongy/soggy. You can store it for up to 3 days in the fridge but again, each day it gets spongier.
Yes, you can freeze crustless pumpkin pie in an airtight container for up to 3 months. It's best to freeze it after baking.
You can use either fresh or canned pumpkin for this recipe. Just be sure to buy canned pumpkin puree, NOT canned pumpkin pie filling!
