The pie will taste its best if you use fresh pumpkin instead of readymade pumpkin purée which contains less carbohydrates, but won't give the pie its natural sweetness. You want all the pumpkin goodness in this fantastic pie – skip the can! (If possible.)
If you prefer a dairy-free pie, just substitute butter and cream for coconut oil and coconut cream.
