Vegan Pumpkin

The crisp fall air swirls ushering in a new season, autumn is here. This cooler season has us reaching for long sleeves and wrapping scarfs around our necks to keep warm. The leaves on the trees are transforming from the familiar shades of emerald we have grown accustom to in summer into explosions of ruby, citrine and amber. Birds flutter to and fro anticipating their departure to warmers climates. Their safe sanctuaries hidden in the leaves are being exposed with each leaf that floats to the ground. A new scene is being painted on the landscape for us to enjoy.

Fall is a special time of year. For me, the season is all about pumpkins. I love going to the pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin, carving it and toasting the seeds. I love pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin chili. If it is made from pumpkin I will be eating it and this is why I love pumpkin nice cream. This yummy dessert is guilt-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan, it’s perfect! Make up a batch and enjoy it with friends and family throughout the season. Be sure to let us know how much you love it.
