Dump pie crust mixture into pie plate. Press crust down firmly into pie plate. Form into a crust. Press down firmly. Crust is now ready. (set aside).
Next, make raw pumpkin pie filling. Throw pumpkin pie filling ingredients into your high speed blender and blend from low to high until very, very silky smooth! ( try not to add any additional water other than what is called for. If it isn't blending properly, stop blender. Remove lid. Insert knife down side of blender - create air pocket. Remove knife, put lid back on, continue blending).
Pour pumpkin pie filling into pie dish on top of crust. Smooth out top of pie with a knife or back of spoon. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap.
Place completed pie in freezer for at least 4 hours.
Keep in freezer at all times. If serving slice immediately as needed and eat frozen. Tastes like real pumpkin pie - raw style!
You can also substitute the pumpkin and carrot for cocoa or dark chocolate, banana, strawberries or whatever fruit or veggie of your choice.
