I must admit pumpkin pie is my favorite go to holiday treat. I created this recipe years ago and we have been serving it in the cafe for over 10 years. I have recenetly updated it to be a little bit more on the Health Coach friendly side, since I am a certified Health Coach and want customers to indulge but not feel guilty after! Love it or hate it, pumpkin pie is a holiday staple. We've all seen it sitting at the dinner table—that iconic orange circle. We wanted to bring an organic vegan twist to the pie lovers dream! Earlier this year we were honored for our recipe to be posted on Organic Spa Magazine's site. Follow the link to read more!
