For me, no holiday meal is complete without dessert. But after I’ve enjoyed a hearty and satisfying meal, I don’t want to eat sugar-y, high-carb desserts that will make me sleepy. Fortunately, raw food desserts deliver tons of palate-pleasing sweetness, but let me stay alert so I can enjoy the company of friends and family.
Take my Raw Pumpkin Pie. This I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-baked recipe will wow your friends and family with its great taste, while the ingredient list will amaze them. There’s no refined sugar, no cream or dairy products, and most amazing of all: there’s no pumpkin! Carrots are the star of this pie recipe because they are so much sweeter raw.
Blended with avocado, natural sweeteners, and pumpkin pie spice, the filling is smooth, creamy, and delicious. I serve my pumpkin pie in a raw graham cracker crust, accented with Vanilla Cashew Cream piped on the top in a lattice pattern. You can also make a pumpkin parfait by alternating layers of pie filling and the cream in a pretty parfait glass.
