Sugar- & Oil-free Creamy Pumpkin-Coconut Pie.


Pumpkin Coconut Pie An Unrefined VeganI’m one of those people who stocks up on canned pumpkin and enjoys eating it (and butternut squash and sweet potatoes…) all year-round, but I appreciate that for some folks, there’s only one season in which to consume this low calorie food: Fall.

If you are one of those people, you’re missing out on about 9 months of nutritional benefits. Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants (think: cancer-fighters) like vitamin C and E and is off-the-charts in vitamin A. It’s also an excellent source of minerals like copper, phosphorus, calcium, and potassium. Find maca powder here; and vanilla-flavored liquid stevia here.

        Amanda, if you have coconut flakes and a food processor, you can make coconut butter. Just process the flakes until a smooth, shiny paste forms. I don’t think Earth Balance would work in this.

      Hi Kate – I’m sorry to hear that the pie didn’t turn out as expected. I know how disappointing that is. I have not had a similar issue so can only guess – perhaps your pumpkin puree was more watery? Did you use both the cashews and the coconut butter? Both ingredients help with firming up the filling.
