Christmas dinner is never complete without a piece of pumpkin pie. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like making the same old pumpkin pie year after year. I love to wow my family and friends with something totally new and delicious. Now that all your Thanksgiving dinners are already made – that probably includes a traditional pumpkin pie – it’s time to think about your Christmas dinner menu.
This festive season I suggest you making vegan pumpkin pie with a twist. Vegan pumpkin pies are overflowing with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium, fiber and protein. They are also relatively low in calories, depending on how much sweeteners you use. Take a look at the following pumpkin pie recipes for your most vegan Christmas ever.
