  • Serving Size: 1/6 recipe


1 cup water
2 cups low-fat milk
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup cornmeal, coarse yellow
6 oz. fat-free whipped topping (optional, not included in nutritional analysis)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional, for garnish)


  1. In a medium pot, bring the water, milk, and pumpkin puree to a simmer. Add the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Slowly add the cornmeal in an even pour, whisking to incorporate. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring as needed, until tender and thickened. If polenta thickens too much, add a small amount of low-fat milk to get a smooth, creamy texture.
  2. Pour the mixture evenly into six soufflé dishes. If desired, garnish with a small dollop of whipped topping and a pinch of cinnamon. Can be served immediately or allowed to cool and served later.
