Fall desserts are all the rage, but what if they were a little easier to make this summer?
We’re talking pumpkin pie, but not a chocolate or caramel one, or a chocolate-and-caramel pie with vanilla ice cream.
We’re not talking about the kind of pumpkin pie you make at Thanksgiving dinner or the kind that comes with pumpkin soup, but one you can make at home, and make in minutes, no stove required.
It’s the fall dessert recipe for you.
It can be made with chocolate and coconut milk or with cream cheese, cream, and butter.
The only ingredient you’ll need is pumpkin, but you can use any flavor.
To make it easier to keep track of the ingredients and recipes, we’re using this recipe to demonstrate what you can do with coconut water and coconut cream.
Just remember to let the coconut water cool down before adding any of the other ingredients.
Add the pumpkin and stir until all the water is mixed together.
Taste the pumpkin to make sure it’s just right, and if you need to, add more water if needed.
Then add the coconut cream, if you use it, and mix well to combine the ingredients.
Pour the mixture into a pie dish or a pie plate, if desired.
This is an easy dessert to make and is a great way to enjoy fall and the fall holidays without spending much time indoors.
