Thanksgiving will probably look different for a lot of us this year. A little less grand, a few less people… but that doesn’t mean the food needs to be any less delicious. And whether you celebrate with a small turkey, a tofurkey or no turkey, there are many healthy and delicious food choices to meet everyone’s tastes. For me, Thanksgiving isn’t complete without cranberry sauce. I feel that one cannot really enjoy turkey or tofurkey without a side of that tangy fruit.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I have been busy preparing our holiday menu. While my family and I have a lot of favorite dishes that we enjoy making each year, it’s always fun to try new recipes. One food that we love to get creative with is sweet potatoes.

Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks for all we have, for overindulging in foods, and hanging out with family and friends. I am thankful for all of these things… and I am also thankful when a delicious dessert ends a fantastic meal! This recipe takes the traditional pumpkin pie and updates into a deliciously decadent dessert that is dairy free, gluten free, vegan, and even pretty healthy. (Shhh, don’t tell anyone.)

Loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals, you’ll get a mouthful of potassium, magnesium, selenium and lutein in every bite, plus a good dose of vitamins A, C and E.
