If you didn't decide what to make as Thanksgiving dessert yet, these little pumpkin tartlets would do a great choice! They're sweet, dairy, gluten and sugar free and absolutely delicious. I always said that raw desserts are so much better and tastier then baked desserts and as raw vegan, you won't miss anything during the holidays. You can enjoy sweetness and deliciousness of holidays even the healthy way.
They're easy to make and you can even use decorative paper tart cups to make them look even more festive. To make the star on the top can be a little tricky, but not impossible. You need to just slice the carambola (or star fruit) thin, cut slits in the the star and put them together. I wish you all the best Thanksgiving!
