Let us take a moment to appreciate how versatile and adaptable the humble pumpkin can be! Have you tried pumpkin pie before? It is so creamy and subtly sweet and feels like the most nourishing comfort food.

This isn’t just any old pumpkin pie though! It’s not only vegan, refined sugar-free and gluten-free, but it’s also made with Cocavo Turmeric & Lemon! Which adds such a delicious, zingy twist (and colour) to the pie!

Turmeric is naturally anti-inflammatory and has been used in India for all sorts of remedies since ancient times. Adding Cocavo Turmeric and Lemon into this pie means you are giving yourself a whole wide range of health benefits (as well as a decadent dessert).

Make sure you add a little bit of pepper to activate the curcumin to get all the goodness out of it.

• 3 tbsp lemon juice
