This dairy-free keto pumpkin pie is fabulous!
I miss pumpkin pie. The real stuff with real crust and real whipped cream. This recipe actually quells my cravings and helps to make me feel somewhat normal this time of year.
For those who deal with food allergies and sensitivities, this time of year can be really tough. Especially if you’re just starting to try and figure out how to eat around the things you’re reactive to. The five most common food sensitivities (wheat, eggs, dairy, corn, and soy) knock out all the traditional Thanksgiving and Holiday dishes. No green bean casserole, no buttery mashed potatoes, no stuffing, and no pie.
So, you have a few choices. You can eat it anyway and compromise your health, you can try using enzymes to help you through, or you can figure out how to make alternatives that are close enough to the real thing to satisfy your traditions while remaining healthy and feeling good.
I’ve used all of the approaches and I had to learn my lesson the hard way about eating food I’m reactive to anyway, that’s how I developed autoimmunity and cancer. So, I think I’ll stick with safe alternatives from now on and I’ve created a dairy-free keto pumpkin pie that’s pretty delicious!
