I hope your day is going great! I wanted to let you know I finally found a great vegan sweet potato pie recipe that is so tasty! My inspiration came from Chocolate Covered Katie, but I made it twice, and realized I liked my changes. So I present my vegan sweet potato pie recipe!
Vegan Sweet Potato Pie
This wasn’t the first time I made this pie. Actually, I baked this pie twice, because I was invited to a party and I wanted to make sure I got the taste right. I am Black, if you didn’t notice, and sweet potato pie is quite a thing in the Black community, especially in the South. The party was certainly not full of vegans, and I wanted to come correct. Although I was nervous, everyone loved it.
For this recipe, I used a graham cracker crust. It was vegan, which was a find. Just read the back of the pie crusts, and you can find one too. You can also make one from scratch, which of course, is ideal. The crust gave the recipe the extra sweetness I was craving. I also made some coconut whipped cream, which I will add as a recipe soon!
