You Say Potato, We Say Butternut

We've lightened up the holiday staple, swapping out sweet potatoes for less-carby butternut squash. The taste is right on the money, and our new-and-improved recipe is low in calories and healthier than ever. (Still, there's no substitute for marshmallows!)

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 1 hour and 10 minutes

Cool: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

8 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash

1 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener

1 tbsp. maple extract

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" X 13" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Place squash in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/4 cup water, and cover. Microwave for 10 minutes, or until just tender enough to mash. Drain well.

Roughly mash squash. Add all remaining ingredients except marshmallows. Mix thoroughly.

Transfer mixture to the baking pan. Bake until firm, 45 - 50 minutes.

Top with marshmallows, and bake until melted and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
