I have to admit, I don’t really like pie. Well, I like the filling, but always left the crust. Now that we have gone grain-free, the crust has become something entirely different than what I grew up eating. Paleo pie crusts are often times very dense and filled with nuts. That’s all good, but the filling is still the best part.
This is exactly why I came up with Paleo Pumpkin Pie Pudding!
It’s the pie filling without the crust, and it still has all the amazing flavor. Serve it topped with your favorite whipped cream and you have something pretty darn amazing!
Guess what? This delicious treat is actually good for you too! Let me tell you why…
- Pumpkin: high in Vitamin A. Also contains Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, antioxidants, and fiber!
- Coconut Milk: full of healthy fats and contains lauric acid, which is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease-causing organisms
- Raw Honey: the main health benefits for which we revere raw honey today come from the unique blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients and other health components that it possesses. The two key beneficial components of truly raw honey are bee pollen and propolis
Go ahead, have a big bowl of pumpkin pie goodness!
