Have you seen all of the Allergy Inspiration Tarts? If not, be sure to check them out. That’s where the idea for this pie filling came from. Interestingly, depending on how much slurry you use, this vegan corn free recipe morphs between a thin pie filling and gets as thick as jello. How’s that for versatility? I will tell you this going in: this corn free vegan dessert recipe isn’t for everyone. You have to enjoy cooked oranges for this to be a success.
Interestingly, this was my first time ever having cooked oranges as a dessert. I thought I would love it… I didn’t. Mr. Low No/Sugar LOVED this dessert. I told him he could have mine and he thought it was a trick of some sort, haha. I preferred the lemon pie filling over the orange, but in a pinch, I’d still eat the orange recipe.
If you’re corn free and able to source wax-free safe oranges, I’d say try this out at least once. Even though it wasn’t for me, I still wanted to share the recipe because it’s a good corn free recipe. Furthermore, I think it’s so important to try ALL of your options (at least once) when you’re living the food allergy and special diet life.
Last note… I should really say, it’s a great recipe if you’re corn free and have other limitations. If you can have items such as eggs or gelatin, this may throw you for a loop. If you only have a handful of safe ingredients, this is an epic recipe.

While this recipe follows the letter of the law for AIP, it’s not quite the spirit of the law. If you are AIP, you CAN make this. I suggest enjoying this in very small amounts though. I’d advise the same for anyone who is diabetic.
There are two versions of this recipe that were created, and I’ll be sharing both. You may notice that with the Allergy Inspiration Series, I do that a lot. It’s my way of shedding light on the development process when things aren’t quite what I want them to be.
In this case, both recipes tasted about the same. The textures were VERY different. Take your pick 🙂
