    • Shari – it can very well be raw if you put the pumpkin into a food processor and puree it. It does not have to be cooked :-).

        • The pumpkin is pre-cooked, it’s just that the pie is not (meaning raw), so you can definitely use cooked pumpkin. ~ Jen HB Support

  1. Just to clarify, the pie is served cold but not frozen, correct? And does it have a strong coconut flavor?

    • This is a recipe I’ve used before: 1 tsp ground cardamom, 1 tsp ground allspice, 1 tsp ground cloves, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 2 tsp ground ginger,
      Mix spices together in a small bowl.
