1 Cup pitted and chopped dates, soaked and drained, with the liquid reserved
1 can coconut milk (13.66 oz)
1 1/2 Cups pumpkin puree (Note: 1 large can of pumpkin is 3 cups)
2 Tsp pumpkin pie spice (adjust to taste; can substitute with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves)
1/2 tsp salt
1 blind-baked, 9" pie crust (click Here for the Almond Shortbread Crust)
In a blender, combine the dates, coconut milk, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and salt, and process until smooth (if it is too thick to blend completely smooth, add small amounts of the reserved date soaking liquid until it blends smooth).
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust and smooth. Place, uncovered, into the refrigerator and chill for 24 hours before slicing and serving. Allowing the pie to chill uncovered will both firm up the fats in the coconut milk and slightly dehydrate the filling. This dehydration will allow the pie to be more creamy and sliceable, and will concentrate the flavor.
Serve cold with your preferred whipped topping.
