A Simple and Fresh Recipe for the holidays: Raw Vegan Pumpkin Pie


With the US Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I’m not going to ask you all to give up your turkey but I thought I’d encourage you to consider a more compassionate dessert. Below is a vegan, gluten free, raw pumpkin pie recipe. It is so good that once you taste it, you’ll want it to make it all the time, not just during the holidays.

No special tools needed, just a few ingredients and time to chill in your frig.
