Squash Pie gluten free dairy free paleo option

This is one of my favorite desserts, ever.I just love the Garden of Eating recipe for Squash Pie, found here on Rachel's blog. I simply my preparation even a bit further by just cooking a whole butternut squash for 1 hour in the oven, then scooping the flesh into the VitaMix. I add these slightly modified ingredients
  • (3/4 C coconut milk, 
  • 3 eggs, 
  • 1/4 cup honey plus 
  • 1/4 tsp stevia, 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tapioca starch which can be swapped for nut flour if you are going starch free, 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, 
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 
  • dash of salt 
 into the blender and mix. I dump it into my baking dish and bake at 350 for 1 hour. It's so easy, and so delicious! I recommend letting it cool completely, as the cold serving brings out the natural sweetness. Enjoy! I even love this more than homemade pumpkin pie, and that is high praise coming from me :)
