Honestly, what would Thanksgiving be without pumpkin pie?!
Pumpkin pie has become the quintessential fall dessert and a necessary–yes, necessary–component of Thanksgiving dinner. Simple, slightly sweet, and bursting with fall flavor–it’s the perfect ending to a decadent feast and it seems to wrap everything up in a nice, neat bow.
For some time now I’ve been wanting to make a Personal Pumpkin Pie. You see, I’m the type of person who eats an entire pie when there’s one sitting right in front of me. Basically, I have no self-control, especially when it comes to dessert. So, if I make smaller, personal-sized desserts, I’m (sometimes) able to avoid grossly overeating. My favorite mini dessert comes in the form of pie. I’ve shared quite a few mini pies on Almonds & Avocados in the past: Mini Raw Cacao-liscious Pies, Mini Raw Key Lime Pies, Banana Coconut Cream Pies, and Raw Coconut Cream Pies. Though these pies are “mini” versions, they’re actually quite large and filling. And what do all of these pies have in common? They’re all raw, and each one is dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined-sugar-free. They’re also full of flavor! YAY for healthy, delicious desserts!
