How to make vegan pumpkin pie

- Combine the filling ingredients in a blender and pour into the pie crust.
- Bake, let cool completely and enjoy!
Tips for making pumpkin pie
- Use a blender to combine the filling ingredients. This will ensure that you have a creamy and smooth filling. You can mix it by hand, but it will take longer and it must be really well combined.
- Freeze the pie crust before you add the filling. If you skip this step, you run the risk of ending up with a soggy crust when it’s baked. This tip helps it stay crisp after baking.
- Let the pie cool in the fridge for at least 4 hours before slicing. If you slice it too early the filling will not be set. This makes it a great make-ahead dessert for Thanksgiving.
- Use canned pumpkin puree. The water content of pumpkins can vary wildly, so for the most consistent results, opt for canned. Use pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie
- 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
- 1 cup coconut cream canned coconut milk (use the hardened white part)
- ⅔ cup cane sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 teaspoons pumpkin spice blend
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 9” vegan pie crust
- Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a pie pan with the pie crust. Press gently to fill the corners and extend the crust all the way to the edge. Crimp the edge or leave plain.
- Prick the base of the crust with a fork several times. Freeze for 15 minutes.
- In a blender, combine the pumpkin puree, corn starch, coconut cream, vanilla, sugar, salt, and spices. Blend on low speed until completely combined, smooth, and pale orange.
- Carefully pour the pumpkin pie mixture into the frozen pastry in the pie pan, and shake slightly to smooth out the top.
- Bake for 55-65 minutes until slightly firm on the edges when jiggled, and dull on top.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before transferring to the fridge to cool completely – at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Instead of coconut cream, you can use heavy cream, but it won’t be vegan then.
- Instead of cane sugar, you can use regular sugar.
- Instead of canned pumpkin, you can use your own pureed pumpkin, but I would recommend removing as much moisture as possible and expect the consistency to vary. I prefer making it with canned pumpkin.
