Last year I was visiting some friends for Thanksgiving, I wanted to make something special to contribute to dinner but I was so busy that I ended up on Thanksgiving day clueless about what I was bringing over.
I had some leftover pumpkin after making a Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta and I quickly whipped up this wonderful cake.
All the guests ate it and asked for seconds, even after a full Thanksgiving dinner!

- Pumpkin is a great source of potassium and beta-carotene, which is a carotenoid that converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction.
- The health benefits of ginger include treating nausea, easing menstrual cramps, regulating blood sugar levels, and relieving indigestion. Ginger also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can prevent cell damage and help ward off chronic disease.
Super Simple Vegan Pumpkin Pie
- 15 oz Pumpkin Puree Fresh or canned - Fresh is always best
- 1 cup Canned Coconut Milk
- 1 tbsp coconut butter or cashew butter *This is optional but I adore it
- 1/2 cup Maple syrup
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Ginger
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp Cloves
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 3 tbsp Cornstarch
- Pre-made pie crust
- Preheat oven to 350F/175C.
- Add all of the ingredients (except for the pie crust of course) to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste test and adjust to your preference.
- Pour the mixture into the 9-inch pan lined with the pie crust (no, the pie crust is not pre-cooked).
- Bake for 60 minutes on the middle to low rack in the oven.
- Once the 60 minutes is up, let cool by the windowsill for 30 minutes and then chill in the refrigerator overnight.
In search of a High Speed Blender to make all your DIY recipe dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:
- It took me 3 years to choose this blender haha. I’m not even joking. I was so afraid of the price. So, instead, I purchased two other blenders in those 3 years that, low and behold, BROKE. The plant based lifestyle will wreak havoc on most blenders so you must choose a high quality one with a WARRANTY. The Explorian is one of the most inexpensive vitamix options but it still works great. I use it multiple times a day, every single day, and all of the recipes are from this beauty! Check out deals around Black Friday – you can usually snag one of these for under 200USD. For my European followers: Get ready to pay MORE than North America. I’m not sure why, but vitamix in Europe is double the price (which is actually more than double because we pay in euros/pounds/etc).
- I have never owned a Blendtec, but I did live with someone who had one and it was pretty amazing. Never understood why it didn’t come with a tamper (?) but it does work beautifully. I am pretty biased with my years of experience with the vitamix over the Blendtec, but the price point is fantastic and there are TONS of videos out there comparing the two.
- I had a Ninja blender for years and years before I found the plant based lifestyle (or it found me). Prior to going plant based, I loved to make smoothies on a daily basis (still do today!). However, my smoothies were much *kinder* to the blender than today. While having owned both, I could just (and never would) compare a Ninja to a Vitamix – the difference is staggering. However, if you are just looking to blend up some oats, make light smoothies, or create epic dressings? Then go ahead and choose this one!
