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.

Description

The classic seasonal favorite with a twist: pumpkin coconut pie with a hint of ginger, but no oil, and no refined sugar.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 9 1/2-inch whole wheat or gluten-free baked pie shell (or your favorite raw crust)
  • 1/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked for a few hours, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 Tbsp. maca powder
  • 1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. vanilla-flavored stevia liquid
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered ginger
  • pinch allspice
  • Whipped coconut cream, for topping, optional

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine the toasted coconut and the crystallized ginger. Set aside.
  2. Put the cashews, pumpkin puree, coconut butter, water, non-dairy milk, maca powder, ginger, stevia, and spices in a high-speed blender and process until very smooth.
  3. Scrape about half of the cashew-pumpkin mixture into the pie crust and smooth. Sprinkle the toasted coconut/ginger over top and carefully add the remaining cashew-pumpkin mixture over top. Spread until even and smooth. Chill for several hours or until firm. Cut into slices and serve with whipped coconut cream.

        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.
