Dessert for your ACD Christmas

Merry Christmas from Bailey, the cat in the kitchen
You don't have to skip dessert at your Christmas celebration just because you are following an anti-candida diet (ACD). Try making a single-serve squash pie that's suitable for ACD-phase 1 and vegan. And don't forget the vanilla ice cream! You can have this for breakfast too!

Single-Serve Squash pie

Here's what you need for one large serving (or two smaller servings):

For the squash pie
1/2 cup squash puree (I used delicata but you also can use pumpkin)
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (Or almond or hemp milk)
1 T. unsweetened shredded coconut
1 T. sunbutter or tahini (or other seed or nut butter)
1 T. ground flax seeds
1 T. chia seeds
1 T. SunWarrior protein powder (or other rice protein powder of choice)
1 T. coconut flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2-1 tsp. cinnamon
stevia to taste

For the vanilla soft-serve ice cream:
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
2 scoops SunWarrior vanilla protein powder
stevia to taste
Optional: 1 T. vegetable glycerine
1/8-1/4 cup additional coconut milk

Here's what to do:

Do the prep for the "ice cream." Blend the ingredients in your food processor. Pour the milk mixture into ice cube trays or silicon mini-cupcake pans. Place in the freezer to harden into milk cubes.

For the squash pie, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray a five-inch ramekin with pan spray or two smaller ramekins. Mix all the ingredients in your food processor. Pour the dough into the ramekin(s). Place the ramekin(s) on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake 30-35 minutes until the pie gets golden on top and pulls away slightly from the sides of the ramekin(s). Allow to cool before serving. Pie may be removed from the ramekin(s) if you are careful.

Vanilla soft-serve ice cream (ACD-Phase 1 friendly)

Finish up the ice cream while the pie cools. Put all the milk cubes in your clean food processor. Add stevia to taste, optional glycerine and just enough coconut milk to blend your ice cream. Mixture will be like soft-serve ice cream. If you want it more scoopable, put the ice cream in the freezer to harden slightly before serving.

This soft-serve ice cream makes a great topping for your Christmas-day pancakes too!
