Low Fat, Health Conscious Pumpkin Custards

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Beat the egg whites in a non-reactive bowl until foamy.  Carefully stir in the evaporated milk, pumpkin, sugar, spices and salt.
  2. Fill 4 ramekins with the pumpkin custard.  Place the ramekins in a shallow baking dish and pour 1 inch of boiling water around the ramekins.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (35-40 minutes).  Remove ramekins from the water and set aside to cool slightly before serving.  Can be served chilled as well.
