Our Favorite Vegan Thanksgiving Dessert: Kite Hill Pumpkin Cheesecake Tart

It’s the time of year when most of us crave a creamy, dreamy, pumpkin treat. If you’re vegan — or if you’re expecting vegan guests — grab your fork and listen up. Kite Hill’s new Pumpkin Cheesecake Tart is baked with real pumpkin and creamy almondmilk ricotta in a crunchy gingersnap crust. It’s so good that even your dairy-loving guests will be begging for a second slice!

You may already know Kite Hill as makers of fine vegan cheeses. Their genius consists of combining plant-based, nondairy nut milks with traditional cheesemaking methods. You can taste the craftsmanship in Kite Hill’s smooth, silky ricotta. It boasts sweet and cultured overtones with a buttery finish that shines in baked goods like the Pumpkin Cheesecake Tart.

This holiday season, Whole Foods Market is the only place you can find Kite Hill’s Pumpkin Vegan Tart — check your local store for availability.
