Most pumpkin pie recipes call for cream and eggs. For a healthier (and vegan) alternative this holiday season, try replacing the milk and eggs with 4 to 5 tablespoons of arrowroot powder (a natural thickener extracted from a tropical plant root).

This creates a creamy pie that holds together beautifully and has fewer calories and less saturated fat.
