Get ready to eat like a Kardashian. We've got the recipe for the gluten- and dairy-free dessert the famous family will be eating this Thanksgiving
Out of all the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney easily takes the prize for health and wellness junkie. As any true KUWTK fan will know, Kourt (and her kids) follow an organic, gluten-free, and dairy-free diet. The world has long been fascinated with figuring out her every food move, including her go-to salad order, what she eats before and after a workout (here, an R.D. weighs in on whether you should copy her), and all her weird health obsessions, from liquid probiotic drinks, to clarified butter—a.k.a. ghee, to yes, her placenta.
Well, thanks to new recipes on her app and website, you can also find out how she eats for Thanksgiving, too. While each of the dishes she's shared—including a non-dairy creamed spinach and Kris' sweet potato soufflé—are relatively healthy, we can report that she still eats you know, normal Thanksgiving food—and that includes pumpkin pie. But since this is Kourtney we're talking about, her crust calls for organic vegan butter and gluten-free flour, and she swaps out the traditional condensed milk for coconut cream in her pumpkin filling. Still, the recipe doesn't stray too far from the pumpkin pie you know and love if you feel like giving the Kourt version a try for your own Thanksgiving meal.

- 12 tablespoons cold organic vegan butter
