Thanksgiving 2011 is less than a week away, but you still have plenty of time to stock up on treats and prepare your meal. The dessert course of turkey-day can always seem overwhelming because in addition to mastering vegetables, stuffing and a baked bird, you also have to cook a sugar and fat-laden pie. Not this year.
We take a look at five classic Thanksgiving treats and substitute healthier ingredients. Most of the calories in Thanksgiving treats come from sugar, milk, cream and buttery crusts. From pumpkin pie with low-fat milk to pecan pie without the corn syrup, you will thank yourself (and so will your family) for these healthy alternatives to your normal sugary, fatty desserts.
