dairy-free dessert raw vegan

 

I’m breaking the rules. I’m sharing something pumpkin-spiced in the summer. Gasp!

All of our attention and use of pumpkins goes to the fall. I am granting permission to use pumpkin all year round. Hip-hip-hooray.

Sure, there are many ways to add pumpkin, but it’s hard not to add the spice. 

Here is a pumpkin spice “cheese”cake to satisfy your withdrawal without the cold weather and without the dairy.
