  • 3 large Egg White
  • 15 oz Pumpkin (Without Salt, Drained, Cooked, Boiled)
  • 5 tbsp Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1/2 cup, halves Pecan Nuts
  • 1 1/2 lb Sweet Potato
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter Stick


  1. Heat oven to 250°F. Lightly butter a baking sheet.
  2. Place egg whites in a medium mixing bowl; beat with an electric mixer at high speed until foamy. Gradually add 3 tablespoons of sugar substitute and continue mixing just until soft peaks form. Spoon onto prepared baking sheet and spread with a spatula to ¼-inch thickness. Bake 35 minutes. Turn oven off; let meringue stand in oven for 45 minutes. Crush meringue and place in a bowl. Add pecans and toss gently to combine. Set aside.
  3. While meringue is resting, place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan. Cover with water to 2 inches above potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes, and drain. Return saucepan to medium-high heat. Add potatoes, butter, cream, 2 tablespoons sugar substitute, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree. Stir to combine. Mash with a potato masher until smooth. Heat through, about 1 minute.
  4. Transfer potato mixture to a serving dish and cover with meringue topping.
