Harvest Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie has always been a staple in my home on the holidays. It’s rich creamy texture blended with fragrant pie spices is warm and comforting and brings back many happy memories of childhood. That’s why when I decided to try a vegan lifestyle I was a little hesitant to try a vegan pumpkin pie. I tried recipes made with tofu and I wasn’t happy with the taste. I tried other recipes made with coconut cream. They’re better but many recipes don’t have enough spices.

Harvest pumpkin pie is a vegan recipe using coconut cream with the tasty spices I remember. If you don’t like pie spice try cutting the spices in half and tasting before baking the pie. You can also use either pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger separately.
