there’s sweet potato purée and then there’s pumpkin. usually, we choose one or the other for holiday recipes BUT today, we go with the best of both worlds. basically, this tastes like it’s freshly made from your favorite local bakery. i am completely blown away with how beautiful, tasty and legit Vegan Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie turned out.
for being vegan, made with real, wholesome ingredients and minimal ones at that, this pie is a grand 10/10. serve it for the holidays or make it just because, either way, you can’t go wrong.
the filling is this glorious, custard-y goodness that you make in the food processor aka my favorite kitchen item! i seriously use it for everything, especially fillings because it yields a perfect consistency every time.
the process for making Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie is really easy too!
- first, mix all of the crust ingredients in a bowl
- evenly distribute it in a pie pan
- mix the filling ingredients in a food processor or blender
- pour into pie crust lined pan
- bake and then chill preferably overnight in the fridge but at least 6 hours!
i’m really excited to serve this to my non-vegan family members and see what they think. i bet my parents who are not vegan won’t even be able to tell the difference!
alright my friends, the hubs and i are going to go eat some lunch and then dig into Vegan Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie even more than we already did. it’s too good to stop eating!
