Sadly, store-bought, traditional pumpkin pies are not vegan-friendly. Nor are they particularly healthy, unless you consider sweetened condensed milk some kind of vitamin supplement. Luckily though, Jugofresh has both health-conscious Miamians and meatless eaters covered when it comes to Thanksgiving desserts this year.

Chef Paco has whipped up four options for pre-order ahead of Turkey Tofurky Day. All raw, the options include key lime, chickpea cookie dough, pumpkin and coconut carrot.

"These pies are not only for raw food enthusiasts," says Jugofresh owner Matthew Sherman. "They are for anyone and everyone that would like to have a delicious and healthy option alternative to traditional desserts over the holidays. We would put up our pies against any traditionally made holiday desserts. Eyes closed you would pick us every time and that only gets reinforced by your digestive system after the holiday has passed."

All pies are raw, vegan, gluten free, have nuts in 'em and must be frozen for two hours prior to serving. The menu options include:

Raw key lime pie with coconut flakes and chlorella dusting

Filling: lime, agave, coconut meat, avocado, vanilla extract, grey sea salt, coconut oil, crust: almond, date, vanilla extract, grey sea salt, coconut oil

Garnish: coconut flakes, chlorella

Raw chocolate chickpea cookie dough derby pie with raspberry coulis and sliced fruit

Filling: cashews, coconut meat, coconut mylk, coconut oil, agave, cacao powder

Crust: almond, date, vanilla extract, grey sea salt, coconut oil, raspberry coulis (raspberry, lemon, agave, vanilla extract)

Garnish: coconut flakes, raspberries, pineapple, banana
