Coming in at under 150 calories, this seasonal dessert definitely hits the spot. Pumpkin provides an oasis of health benefits – it is known to boost the immune system, protect skin through its carotenoids, and even reduce the risk of cancer by boasting the antioxidant beta-carotene. Add spices for a more festive flavor and additional benefits, including lower blood sugar levels from cinnamon and ginger's anti-inflammatory properties.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 6

  • 2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup Dark Brown Sugar

  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
