Fool everyone this holiday season with a delicious dairy free pumpkin pie that is smooth, creamy and delicious! We have several food sensitivities and allergies in our extended family, so we have to modify recipes for every gathering. That doesn’t mean that we sacrifice on taste though!
Once when I was very new to dairy free baking, I made a vegan cheesecake with a ground cashew base/ maple syrup sweetener and it was absolutely awful!! My brother-in-law loves pretty much any dessert you put in front of him, but even he stopped after two bites. It was dreadful!
So from then on I test any recipe I make before bringing it to a function. This time you won’t have to worry because I have done the testing for you!
Allergy Friendly Pumpkin Pie
This pie is easy to adjust for other allergies as well. If you have a gluten allergy, substitute a gluten-free crust.
This pie comes out creamy and flavorful. You won’t even miss the dairy that used to be in it, because the coconut milk provides that smooth texture. The spices are just right, not overpowering or too weak to taste.
No one at your family gathering will know that there in anything different with your pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving.

Hopefully this helps you simplify your Thanksgiving Day plans. This pie is the perfect one to make the day before and allow the flavors to meld in the fridge.
Just don’t forget the whipped topping! My mother became famous in our family for forgetting the whipped topping during the holidays. We were always running around town trying to find anyone open that still had some in stock.
Now I always have a tub or two in my deep freezer, just in case she forgets again! Sorry ma!
