Paleo Pumpkin Pie

I was at Trader Joe’s doing a paleo stock up shopping trip when I saw cans of coconut cream. I was intrigued and tried to figure out what I could do with it. I got it home and opened it and found a super thick and rich coconut product. Yum! It reminded me of evaporated milk, so I figured it would make a great pumpkin pie. Boy am I glad that I was right! I was a bit nervous as this was my first attempt at a paleo pie, but it turned put awesome!
