It’s Pumpkin Season, What Better Way To Celebrate Autumn Than With Pie!

low carb pumpkin cheese cake

Lisa Pantoja one of FittoServe’s followers is sharing a family favorite recipe that she converted to low carb.  Lisa embraces this healthy lifestyle, and has made great strides.

Lisa and I share a love for baking and when she realized that it was not too difficult to transform her favorite recipes into low carb options, she rolled up her sleeves and began to work.  Her pumpkin cheesecake was revamped easily with minimal fuss. Today she is able to serve her family a healthier version.

Thank you Lisa for inspiring, and showing us that it is possible to make this way of eating a way of life.

    This recipe sounds great, but I have a couple questions. First, the ingredient list has sugar substitute but the directions neglect to mention it, when is it used? And second, I’d rather use honey instead of sugar substitute so how would I modify the recipe to account for the extra liquid? Thanks.

      Michelle in a low carb plan honey is way to high on the glycemic index. Perhaps subbing with coconut sugar although still high is a little better. I don’t use honey so I don’t know how to adjust it for you. You mix the sugar with the cream cheese then add the egg. Hope this helps
