Custard filling:

3 cups cooked, pureed pumpkin (note: about a 3½ lb organic pumpkin can be quartered, seeded and then steamed before making this filling. Just let the pumpkin cool and then scrape the flesh from the shell and puree it in a blender or food processor.)
1½ Cup maple syrup
2 Tbs arrowroot
1 tsp salt
1½ tsp cinnamon
1½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
6 large eggs

Blend all ingredients thoroughly and then pour into precooked pie shells. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350o The filling will still be loose in the center when you remove them from the oven. Cool the pies and then chill before serving.
Great ala mode with homemade vanilla ice cream. Yummmmmm!

      Yes, that is true. But many people believe avoiding dairy or having a dairy intolerance puts whey protein on their “can’t have” list. That is not necessarily true. Very high quality whey proteins like Standard Process or this one work well for most people, in my experience with 1000’s of clients. Whey protein is an excellent source of glutathione, a key antioxidant.
