The approaching Thanksgiving holiday always gets me in the mood for something pumpkin. I just threw this dish together on a whim and it turned out to be quite wonderful.
- 4 tsps organic pumpkin puree (I like Farmer’s Market brand, and it has a BPA free liner)
- 2 TBSP organic pecan butter (I love Blue Mountain Organics nut butter, they sprout them for you.)
- Dash of organic cinnamon
- Dash of stevia
- 3 TBSP Primal Whipped Cream
- Mix the pumpkin, pecan butter, stevia and cinnamon together in a bowl.
- Get the Primal Whipped Cream recipe on the following page.
- (If you don’t do dairy, then you could use the Paleo Whipped Cream recipe from the following page instead, that is made from coconuts. I haven’t tried it with that option, but I imagine it would taste just as good.)
- Make the Paleo Whipped Cream as instructed on that page.
- Fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture gently, until it is all mixed together and smooth and creamy. It only takes a minute or so.
That’s it. Easy Peasy. Enjoy this delightful dessert during the holiday or any time of year you might be in the mood for pumpkin.
You could add additional spices if you like, like nutmeg or a pumpkin pie spice blend. A variety of different nut butters could also be used in place of the pecan butter, if you want to experiment. I suppose almonds or walnuts would work just as well. However, in my opinion, the combination of pecan and pumpkin is exquisite.
Pumpkin is rich in a variety of nutrients like vitamin A, C, and E, potassium, iron, folate, choline and others, while pecans are a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, several of the B vitamins and more.
This pumpkin pecan cream recipe is also very low in carbs, (less than 10 grams) so it is a nutritious dessert that can be enjoyed without guilt, exacerbation of symptoms or fear of harming your health.
Another fabulous treat for everyone, even those with Candida overgrowth, insulin resistance, sugar and carb addiction, adrenal fatigue, depression, anxiety, compulsive overeating, SIBO, or any type of autonomic nervous system disorder and those concerned about their waistline. However, it is so rich, creamy and satiating that it will also work well to satisfy a carb craving.
Not only that, it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish to make, so its quick and easy as well. If you’ve read my recipes before, you know that I am all about quick and easy when it comes to the kitchen. 😉
This dish was so good that you could actually use it in place of pumpkin pie, if you are looking for an alternative.
