The Best Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Be Thankful for Vegan Pumpkin Pie.

That spicy and creamy custard filling. That flaky and rich buttery crust. You know what I’m talking about… pumpkin pie! The time is finally here to indulge in this classic taste of the holidays.


Wouldn’t you love to gratify those taste buds of yours while also choosing the healthiest and cleanest version of this pie? With so many diet restrictions these days, I am always looking for ways to make our favorite recipes enjoyable by all. So, when my clients began asking for a vegan, flax free pumpkin pie, I knew I had my work cut out for me. Thus this journey began, to construct a pie void of all the above ingredients, but of course, not while compromising that classic and delicious taste.

Voila! From my kitchen to yours… vegan pumpkin pie. Enjoy

I decided to make my crust from scratch, but you could easily buy a frozen one.

The Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp of sugar

  1. Chill the flour and mixing bowl.
  2. Cut the vegan butter into the flour and mix until its coarsely combined.
  3. Get your hands in the bowl and knead until the butter is all blended; it will be crumbly.
  4. Start adding ice water until dough forms to itself. Roll dough into a ball and gently begin to roll out the dough moving away from your self until it is about 2-3” in diameter bigger than your pie dish.
  5. Gently fold in half and place in center of pie pan so that the edges just barely hang off.
  6. Flute the edges by placing the thumb on the outer side of the crust and the two index fingers on either side of the thumb in the inside of the crust.
  7. Push the thumb forward while pulling the index fingers toward you.
