Default Sweet Potato Pie recipe

Modified from the recipe included on the "Organic Sweet Potato Puree" can, all ingredients are from Trader Joe's:

Creamed (unheated) honey, 1 large heaping spoonful
Light coconut milk, 1 14oz. can or slightly less (I used about 8 oz., I wish they had full-fat, but that's what I got)

Heat those two on the stove on low heat to just liquify the honey and mix it with the coconut milk.

1 can TJ's organic sweet potato puree (15oz.)
1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 or 2 dashes of vanilla
2 eggs

Mix the sweet potato, spice, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl, slowly/gently to not whip a bunch of air into it. Then combine this mixture with the coconut milk & honey mixture.

Prep a pie dish or a 9" x 9" pyrex baking dish with your oil of choice (honestly, I just used a little EVOO spray). Coat the oil with almond meal. Pour in the pie mixture. Bake at 425F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 for 35-40 minutes.

Cool and eat. We ate it while it was still decently warm.

If you have an issue with the canned puree, feel free to boil & mash sweet potatoes. I don't have the time, personally...

Good stuff!
