Pumpkin is a great fall fruit, which can be used both as a savoury side dish or a sweet dessert.
Pumpkin itself is full of healthy nutrition, including both vitamins and minerals. New research indicates that specific carbohydrates in the squash family may even contribute to a reduction of both cancer and cataracts, due to health-promoting substances like carotenoids and other antioxidants.
If you have a tendency to hypertension, winter squash and pumpkin are rich in minerals like potassium and magnesium, which support healthy blood pressure.
However, treats like pumpkin pie can be off the menu for individuals with allergies. Unfortunately, most desserts contain the duo of best known food allergens: dairy and gluten.
As another benefit, you can make this recipe without any sugar.
It gets its creamy goodness from coconut – another nutritional powerhouse. So, here’s a modern version of an old favourite that you can serve to your allergic family members and make no apologies!
