Sweet Raw Food Holiday Treats

Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but my raw pumpkin pie recipe is a hit at any time of the year. Made with delightfully sweet carrots instead of pumpkin, it delivers all your favorite flavors, without the carbs and sugar. Raw Pumpkin Pie is the latest addition to my YouTube Channel

For me, no holiday meal is complete without dessert. But after I’ve enjoyed a hearty and satisfying meal, I don’t want to eat sugar-y, high-carb desserts that will make me sleepy. Fortunately, raw food desserts deliver tons of palate-pleasing sweetness, but let me stay alert so I can enjoy the company of friends and family.

Take my Raw Pumpkin Pie.  This I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-baked recipe will wow your friends and family with its great taste, while the ingredient list will amaze them.  There’s no refined sugar, no cream or dairy products, and most amazing of all:  there’s no pumpkin!  Carrots are the star of this pie recipe because they are so much sweeter raw.

Blended with avocado, natural sweeteners, and pumpkin pie spice, the filling is smooth, creamy, and delicious.  I serve my pumpkin pie in a raw graham cracker crust, accented with Vanilla Cashew Cream piped on the top in a lattice pattern.  You can also make a pumpkin parfait by alternating layers of pie filling and the cream in a pretty parfait glass.

 In my next post, I’ll share a recipe that makes a wonderful hostess gift for New Year’s Eve.

Hi Jenny.
Thanks for sharing your recipe!  It especially helps to see you make it on video, and to witness first hand how easy it is to assemble.
I have two of your books, Raw Food Made Easy, and Raw For Dessert, and I highly recommend both of them—my copy of Raw For Dessert is well worn!
Thanks again,

Wow!  what a great recipe.  The only change I would do is reduce a little of the carrots and add real pumpkin.  Thank you
