  6. This is made with spaghetti squash and you can't taste it in the recipe at all. I found it very good and it is creamy and almost custardy in texture. Different flavors of extracts could result in different flavors of pies. Coconut Pie 2 cups 1% or skim milk 2 whole eggs 1 cup Splenda 2 tsp baking powder 2 to 3 tsp coconut extract 1 tablespoon light margarine 3 egg whites 6 tablespoons flour 1 tsp vanilla 1 and 1/4 cup cooked spaghetti squash Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and foamy. Spray 10" pie plate with cooking spray, add ingredients. Bake at preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 50 minutes until brown around the edges and center is set. Makes 8 servings at 1.5 each. Note: if you use regular sugar it brings each serving to 3.5 points.
