Raw pumpkin pie recipe

raw pumpking pie recipe

This (almost) raw pumpkin pie recipe tastes just like the real thing. Really.

I love raw desserts because they are lower in sugar, and usually high in protein. They fill me up in a way that “normal” sweets just don’t. So I’ve been experimenting with them lately. A few weeks ago I made some pumpkin puree, and thought a raw pumpkin pie would be great for Thanksgiving. I found this raw pumpkin pie recipe over at the Rawtarian. I made a few modifications, most notably using cooked pumpkin instead of raw. So really, this is a raw-ish pumpkin pie. I also made a chocolate crust just because I love chocolate and pumpkin.

If you’re looking for a healthy pie alternative for Thanksgiving, this is great. It really, truly tastes like pumpkin pie!
