8 Healthy Pumpkin Dessert Makeovers for Fall
With fall here, there's nothing like a sweet pumpkin dessert to get you in the fall spirit! I personally love to find dessert recipes that lighten up a recipe without compromising taste. Here are 8 healthy pumpkin desserts you must-try this fall (and all of which are perfect to add //www.cal-ez.com/buy" target="_blank">Cal-EZ to for an added calcium and vitamin D boost!).

This dessert is dairy free, using coconut and almond milk as a replacement. With fluffy challah bread, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, all this warm pumpkin bread pudding needs is a scoop of ice cream to top it off!

I have been crushing on Chocolate Covered Katie's blog ever since my cousin introduced me to her delicious desserts. And since my daughter's name is Reese (and I love peanut butter) I had to add this one to the list!

Skinnytaste is by far one of my favorite food blogs. Her meals are not only healthy but typically pretty easy as well. I made these cupcakes for my family a couple years ago and they couldn't believe they weren't full loaded. This is also a fun treat to make with your kiddos!

Fall doesn't exist without pumpkin pie in my opinion. I absolutely love pumpkin pie (covered in light whip cream of course, can you tell I have a sweet tooth?). This is a great alternative to lighten up your pumpkin pie recipe so you don't feel guilty about that added whip cream.
