I love pumpkin pie, but.. who doesn’t? It is rich and sweet and delicious and evokes memories of holidays and family. It is one of those desserts that feels like it should be good for you too. Well this one really is!  It is filled with abundantly nutritious ingredients and uncooked, giving the added benefit of all its vital enzymes intact. But the best thing is that it is Delicious. In fact most people can not even tell that it is not a cooked pumpkin pie and many have claimed it’s the best they’ve ever had.. even those who consider themselves pumpkin pie connoisseurs. Try it and I bet you will think it is the Best Pumpkin Pie also!

The Best Raw Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Ingredients

1 Date and Nut Crust
3 cups Butternut Squash or Pumpkin – peeled and chopped
1 cup Young Thai Coconut  (alternative: 1 cup Cashews – soaked)
1 cup Dates
¼ cup Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Psyllium
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
¾ “ fresh Ginger – grated
1 tsp Vanilla
½ tsp Nutmeg
½ tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Cloves

Directions

Place squash or pumpkin in processor and process until fine. Then add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth. Stop occasionally to scrape down the side of processor and let process for at least 5 minutes until it has a very fine texture.  Transfer to pie crust and let set at least 15 to 30 minutes in the fridge before serving.

 

Alternatives & Tips

If you do not have young Thai coconut you can substitute soaked cashews or almonds, but cashews will give a smoother texture.

If you prefer to serve warm or would rather use less coconut oil  (some people love it and take it as a supplement, others prefer not to have the extra fat) then use more psyllium and less coconut oil. ( 1 ½  Tbsp psyllium and 2 Tbsp coconut oil)

If you have a high speed blender, such as a Vita Mix, you can transfer the processed ingredients to the blender and continue blending. If necessary add a little liquid  1 to 2 Tbsp of almond milk, water or maple syrup to get to a consistency just able to blend it and add an extra pinch of psyllium to help thicken it after if you need.  This is really fine tuning, and only for those with and familiar with using a Vitamix or similar blender.
