No Bake Turtle Pumpkin Pie

Recently in honor of November being Diabetes Awareness Month and it being so close to Thanksgiving, I made some No Bake Turtle Pumpkin Pie for a cooking segment on ciLiving
I found the recipe on pinterest (where else?) on a blog called Sing For Your Supper.  (I love that name!)
But it looked easy enough, and who doesn't love anything when caramel is involved?


Again... another recipe I had never tried making until live on tv, but it turned out GREAT and you would never know it was diabetic friendly!  To see me make it on the show, check it out HERE!

Here's the recipe:

No-Bake Turtle Pumpkin Pie

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar free caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 graham cracker pie crust
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons pecan pieces, divided
1 cup cold 1% milk
2 packages (4-serving size) vanilla sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tub (8 ounce) light whipped topping, thawed, divided

Pour 1/4 cup caramel topping into crust; sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans.
Beat milk, pudding mixes, pumpkin, and spices with whisk until blended. Gently fold in 1 1/2 cup whipped topping. Spread into crust.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Top with remaining whipped topping and 2 tablespoons pecans. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons caramel topping.
