This time of year it's pumpkin spice everything and that is definitely NOT something I'm complaining about.
We had a conversation before church this morning in the leaders meeting where several people mentioned that they didn't care for pumpkin pie because of the texture. I personally love it, but I get that not everyone does, including a few members of my own family, so this year I'm making us a Turtle Cheesecake instead.
- 1 cup of cashew milk
- 1 cup of almond flour
- 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup diced pear (choose a hard one or you could use apple)
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp ground vanilla
- dash of salt
- 1 drop Wild Orange essential oil
- 1 drop Cinnamon Bark essential oil
- 1 drop Ginger essential oil
Stir together the cashew milk and almond flour over a low heat until you reach the desired texture for your porridge (depending how thick you like it this could be 5-20 minutes).
Stir through all the other ingredients and heat for a further 2-3 minutes then enjoy!
You can adjust the oils to your liking, but this was a pretty good mix for us, please do ensure that you're using food grade essential oils for this as most oil on the market are not edible.
