Dairy Free. Gluten Free. Soy Free. Grain Free. Vegan Version.
This recipe is a remake of a Thanksgiving tradition that is a must have at your celebration! Most pumpkin pie recipes rely on canned evaporated milk or heavy cream to provide the rich, creamy flavor. I don't know about you, but milk that can sit on a shelf for 365 days before going bad is a bit scary to me! I use full fat canned coconut milk here instead to give that rich, creamy flavor and consistency.
My mother in law makes an amazing traditional pumpkin pie that my husband dreams about all year long...he literally cannot celebrate Thanksgiving without this pie!! In the 5 years we've been married, we've spent several Thanksgiving day celebrations away from his family and his mother's pumpkin pie and no pie seems to be able to meet his expectations. But a few years I met the challenge...with this recipe! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We don't do tofu any substitutes? Thanks!

Hey Billie! Yes, if you eat dairy but do not eat soy, then you can substitute 2 eggs and 1/4 cup creamer/half and half. Blend the creamer in at the same time of the other ingredients and then after it is well mixed, add the eggs and blend until combined. Then pour it into the crust. Hope that helps!!
