I've been working on this Keto Pumpkin Pie recipe for a couple of years. It takes a while for me to perfect a recipe. I stay awake at night thinking about the ingredient ratios, then test all the different combinations the next day. In the last week I've made this rich and creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pie nine times. It's fabulous because it's not only keto, it's vegan, and the filling is no-bake too!
Our friends Chris and Larry recently went on a Vegan Diet. So when they come over for Thanksgiving dinner with their son and daughter, both now in college, I'll make this pie with my Nut-Free Vegan Pie Crust. Old friends, they landed in Boulder when we did in 2002. We met through our older boys, who went to pre-school together back when we all lived in Manhattan.
While most vegan dessert recipes are super high in sugar, this low-carb pie is sweetened with only 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and thickened with a full cup of coconut milk fat. That's the stuff you scrape off the top of a can of coconut milk. With still more fat from coconut oil, this Vegan Pumpkin Pie is the perfect healthy dessert recipe. If you're on a low-carb high-fat (LCHF) diet Keto Pumpkin Pie is for you!
For a perfectly keto pumpkin pie simply omit the maple syrup from the recipe below. I often make it for myself this way and transfer the filling into 1 cup mason jars turning it into crustless mini-pies or individual servings of custard. Sugar-free pumpkin pie will let you stick to a strict diet while indulging in something decadent during the holidays. For more very low-carb recipes see my Ketogenic Recipes page.
This egg-free, dairy-free, vegan Keto Pumpkin Pie will save you both time and oven space on Thanksgiving. First, with only 7 ingredients total it's super easy to make. Second, given that this pie filling sets in the fridge you'll have one less item occupying your oven on turkey day. I make the crust Tuesday, let it cool overnight, prepare the filling Wednesday, pour it in the crust and refrigerate it until Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. Then voilá it appears like magic at the table!
I have so many readers who are allergic to eggs. This pie for you! Traditional pumpkin pie is simply a pumpkin custard thickened with eggs, then baked in a crust. My rich and creamy low-carb Vegan Pumpkin Pie is thickened with fat, so no need for eggs. Yes, the egg-free pumpkin pie of your dreams has arrived at last! And if you suffer from egg allergies take a look at my Egg-Free Recipes page.
Most pumpkin pie recipes contain dairy in the form of heavy cream, evaporated milk, or the like. Because so many people that have Celiac Disease also have dairy allergies I've created a dairy-free pumpkin pie.
My Vegan Pumpkin Pie pairs perfectly with my Nut-Free Egg-Free Pie Crust which is also 100% vegan. Yes, I've created a nut-free, egg-free, vegan pie crust recipe which will work well for anyone with a food allergy at your Thanksgiving table. Check out more egg-free, dairy-free recipes on my Vegan Recipes page! You can use this special vegan pie crust to complete your Vegan Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving or make it in my Paleo Pie Crust! I've tested it in both and it is fantastic either way!
This post is an oldie but goodie. I first shared this recipe in 2017.
