This turned out great! I used unsweetened almond milk and a gluten-free crust made from scratch. I also used cloves instead of nutmeg. I had to bake my pie for 60 minutes to get the center to set. I don't know if it's the kind of milk I used or if it's because I chilled my pie crust before baking. My advice is to keep baking until the middle isn't jiggly anymore.

Great recipe! Did you know you can whip coconut cream. Get coconut milk in a can (asian food section), refrigerate and when you open the can, skim the cream off the top. It can be whipped just like whipping cream. Save the coconut water for smoothies.

I used this recipe last year and changed it up to meet my needs. Heads up- NON DAIRY creamer has MILK protein in it, so if this is for someone with food allergies, I would suggest canned coconut milk, which is what I used. Full fat, not "lite" canned coconut milk works just like regular milk, tastes awesome, and can be whipped in a blender to make non-dairy whipped cream as well! I am partial to the Thai Kitchen brand. :) I also added a bit of nutmeg to the crust (homemade) before baking, in addition to the pie filling. It added a nice flavor! My son was thrilled to have a "safe" dessert to eat last year! <3

I absolutely loved this! I make pies every year for my family of pumpkin pie lovers and it was a major hit! I'm the non-diary eater in my house too. My family liked this pumkin pie more than the normal recipe and some didn't even notice that this was the same pie that I was eating. My Grandpa even said he thought it was awesome and he didn't even know that it was non-diary! Usually, some of my family avoid eating foods that are friendly to the non-dairy eater but they loved this one!

I'm a nursing mom to an infant with dairy & soy allergies,which means that I too have to avoid dairy & soy. I did use rice dream when making this. it was good. it at least allowed me to have a slice of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. It had good flavor, but lacked creaminess and richness I'm used to with "regular" pumpkin pie. It was more like eating sweetened, spiced pumpkin in a pie shell than creamy pumpkin pie. But if our allergies don't go away, this will be made yearly for my daughter.

Not bad for pareve and super easy! I used vita-soy soymilk and I even found a pareve frozen pie crust at Safeway. I will make this for Thanksgiving so I can offer a kosher dessert that actually tastes like pie. Thanks for posting.
