Imaginative uses for squashes and gourds....!

Just a quick post today. I made my first pumpkin pie. Its good. Here is the rough recipe: (i made 3, so vary quantities depending on how many you make!)!

3 cups of walnuts
3 cups of dates
2 cups lucuma

2 avocado's
1 cup coconut butter
3tbs cinnamon
piece fresh ginger
1 cup soaked dates
1 tbs allspice
3 cups chopped pumpkin
1/4 cup chia seeds
tbs vanilla
pinch salt

Blend the dates and walnuts (helps if you soak dates first) and press into a pie tin/mould. I made it with a deep crust. Set in the fridge.

Blend the pumpkin in high power blender (or food processor) add all other ingredients and blend till smooth, pour into crust and put it in the fridge to set, or freeze! I decorated mine with goji berries and pumpkin seeds. Photos to come!
