This pumpkin pie tastes traditional but the ingredients are anything but! Creamy cashews and soy milk replace the canned condensed milk and mineral-rich dates replace the sugar. This healthier alternative to the holiday classic is so creamy and luscious it won’t stay around for long… so be prepared. You may want to make two!

Colin Campbell's plant-based nutrition program through eCornell University and plans to continue her education in order to help others realize a healthier lifestyle, a greener planet, and a more compassionate world.
