If apple cider and pumpkin pie had a baby, this would be it! Alllll the goodness of pumpkin pie with the tang of apple cider spiced up a bit! I mean, could it get any better?
….Oh yes, it CAN get better!
This pie is 100%:
• Grain Free
• Gluten Free
• Dairy Free
• Egg Free
• Refined Sugar Free
• Fruit Sweetened Only
• Easy To Digest
• High In Protein
….And it contain gut healing properties from the health benefits of Vital Proteins Gelatin! Click HERE to read why I take it every single day.
But wait! There’s more! (man, I feel like some kinda of corny infomercial but, hey, let’s just go with it haha!)
I also used Fire Cider (much different than plain apple cider vinegar) to kick up the flavor and health benefits.
What’s so different about Fire Cider? For one, it’s fermented. And two, it’s 100% raw. And three, the powerhouse of ingredients speak for themselves.
Ingredients: Apple cider vinegar, raw honey, oranges, lemons, onions, ginger, horseradish, garlic, turmeric, habanero pepper.
It’s also organic. Needless to say, this gut friendly, immune boosting “pie” must be made this Christmas (or at least New Years!)
For The Crust:
2 Evo Hemp’s Pineapple Almond Bars (20% off: lilsipper) – I love using these bars as crusts! Such a hack and they’re delicious too with CLEAN ingredients (duh).
For The Topping:
Orange slice (if you want to get fancy)
1. Crumble up both Evo Hemp bars and press firmly into pan / dish (If using something OTHER THAN a springform pan, I suggest lining it with wax or parchment paper first.). Set aside.
2. Pour pumpkin puree, apple sauce, Fire Cider, and cinnamon into your blender and puree.
3. Next, add Vital Proteins Gelatin while bender is on lowest speed (if you have that option), secure lid, then blend on high a few seconds.
4. Pour puree into your prepared pan with crust. Lightly tap pan / dish on counter to ensure no air bubbles are present. Add almond flour and thinly sliced orange (toppings are all optional) then refrigerate a few hours until firm.
