No-Bake Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Who says pumpkin pie is only for the holidays? In my opinion, this beauty should be made all year round. From winter to summer, autumn to spring, it's seriously delicious.

Why is Thanksgiving only one day? Why do we share what we are thankful for 1/365 days? In my house, we celebrate both Canadian and American Thanksgiving. But even 2 days of being thankful seems pretty measly. Not only that, only 2 days of pumpkin pie seems crazy. Every day should have an element of thankfulness to it, and every holiday deserves a pumpkin pie – like this no-bake vegan pumpkin pie.

My Thanksgiving menu has evolved over the past few years. How many times do you let expectations and rules guide how you prep for the holidays? From being too strict on food rules, to making just about everything under the sun because I feel like I should, and now to featuring plant based items that can be made ahead, so that I can relax and enjoy the process – it’s been a journey to get here, but I’m glad I’ve arrived at this point. Thanksgiving is really just about being present with the ones you love.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are things that I am thankful for:

  • A roof over my head

  • Delicious + nutritious food to eat

  • Supportive family and friends who make me feel at home

  • My legs for letting me run races and achieve goals (despite current injuries)

  • My husband for caring for and loving me

  • My ability to see and explore the world

  • For friends that feel like family, and family that feels like friends

  • For this no-bake vegan pumpkin pie

Have a healthy holiday season with your friends and family – no matter the day, be sure to share something you’re thankful for all 365 days of the year.
