Step 3: Pumpkin Puree

Blend the mashed pumpkin on high until smooth.

Step 4: Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

To the blended pumpkin add 1/2 cup brown sugar, a pinch of salt (1/8 tsp)
and pumpkin pie spice;

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 ginger

Step 5: Blend

Add 1/2 cup coconut milk and 3 eggs to blender.
Mix until filling is smooth and evenly spiced.

Step 6: Pour

Step 7: Bake

Bake your pie in an oven pre-heated to 450℉ for fifteen-twenty minutes.
Reduce heat to 350℉ and bake for 30-40 minutes more.

Pie is done when the top cracks or when a toothpick comes out of the centre clean.
Let cool.

Step 8: Serve

Cut the pie and serve with whipped cream or the topping of your choice.

For a low-calorie version just remove the sugar completely - the pie will bake fine and the texture will not be affected.

    If I read correctly you do not bake and gather the pumpkin flesh at all, I hadn't thought of that way...thanks for an interesting variation.
