Dearies, this post is simply an update of deliciousness. Vegan deliciousness in the form of sweet potato pie that is! And the truth is that this pie is so rich and wonderful that it is reminiscent of cheesecake and even rivals my earlier recipe for sweet potato pie that includes eggs and dairy milk. If you are vegan or just trying to lower cholesterol this holiday season, I hope you will give this vegan sweet potato pie recipe a try-it's so easy and worth it!
Here's the recipe:
-Vegan Sweet Potato Pie-
2 Organic Sweet Potatoes (1 1/2 Cups)
3/4 Cup Turbinado Sugar
2 Tbsp. Corn Starch
3/4 Tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp. Nutmeg
Pinch of Salt
1 Tsp. Vanilla
3/4-1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk*
1/4 Cup Plain Vegan Yogurt
*Start with 3/4 and move up if needed.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash sweet potatoes and prick them with a fork. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until done. Remove from the oven and lower the heat to 350 degrees. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool and measure out 1 1/2 Cups of sweet potato.
Measure out your sugar and mix it with the corn starch, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Place the sweet potato in a mixing bowl. Break it down and make it as smooth as possible. Add the sugar mixture and combine. Then add the almond milk, yogurt, and vanilla. Blend till completely smooth. Pour into crust and place on the middle rack in the oven. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Allow to cool on a baking rack for at least 3 hours.
