Raw Pumpkin Pie from RawGuru

We wanted to make a raw pumpkin pie. We found two raw pumpkin pie recipes one from rawguru and one from fullyraw.  We are making them both and comparing them. Thanking Courtney again for assisting us with this pie!!!!
This one will be less sweet due to only using 15 dates plus a banana instead of 3 pounds of dates but  has more fat with the coconut, cashews, and cacao butter. We are using a white Cinderella pie pumpkin for both.
We made a few minor changes cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips and lucuma powder instead of mesquite.

The crust:
1 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup cacao butter
1 cup walnuts
½ cup almonds
10 dates
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon carob powder

2 tablespoons cacao nibs


1.Let soak the cashew overnight.
For the crust:
1. Melt the butter in a bain-marie.
2. Process the walnuts, the almonds and the coconut  in a mixer , separately, until finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until the composition starts to hold together when squeezed.
3. Press the mixture into the bottom of a mold lined with parchment paper, and set aside in the fridge.
To make the cream:
1.Drain well the cashews.
2.Combine all ingredients in a food processor (except the chocolate chips)  and mix until everything is smooth. Add the chocolate. Pour the cream over the crust, smoothing out. Place it in the frigo to let it stiff. Decorate with some chocolate.
