My daughter has been gluten free for over 6 months. She is doing great and adjusting to her new diet. She loves it when I make one of her favorites dishes in a gluten free version. She is requesting pumpkin pie. I found a gluten free pie crust mix and gluten free pumpkin pie filling but the recipe I have calls for sweetened condensed milk. She also has severe lactose intolerance. What is a good dairy free substitute for sweetened condensed milk?

Thanks!

My mom has made dairy free pie for my bro for years. She uses coconut milk. If your recipe has sweetened condensed milk you might want to consider adding more sugar, or finding a recipe that uses regular milk or cream.

I say start now with test pies. :)

I have used almond milk (vanilla is extra yummy) in pumpkin pie with excellent results:)

I use the recipe on the Libby can of pure pumpkin.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I will try it with the vanilla almond milk. She drinks plain almond milk every day so I can give her what is not used in the pie. Do you think an equal substitution or less since almond milk is not as thick as sweetened condensed milk?

I used a bit less-- about a half cup less. I didn't sub the almond milk for sweetened condensed, though. I used it instead of the evaporated milk.

One of my cookbooks says to replace sweetened condensed milk use an equal amount of Cream of Coconut (but I have never seen this product yet in my stores). The company is Coco Lopez.

Or for a dairyfree version: Combine 3 cups vanilla soy or coconut milk with 1/2 cup sugar.
Simmer and reduce to 1 and 1/2 cups. Thicken with 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot mixed with an additional amount of 2 tablespoons of the soy or coconut milk you are using. Then cool it and use it any recipes that call for sweetened condensed milk. (This is to substitute for a 14oz. can of condensed milk).

I have not tried this yet so don't know for sure how it will work. I copied it down because I also want to make pumpkin pie. I also have severe lactose intolerance and lately tried the Lactaid Milk which says it is 100% lactose free which I seem to be tolerating so I might try boiling that down with the 1/2 cup sugar instead. I bet using and boiling down the coconut milk would really be good but they don't always have it at the store so the Lactaid Milk would be the alternative thing for me to use.

Yes, you should make as many test pies as possible. You have time to do at least 5 weeks worth, if you start now. ;) If the almond milk doesn't work out, there is always the canned coconut milk version with honey, extra spices and pecan topping.

A recipe was posted today for "Easiest Dairy Free Condensed Milk" on the website www.Wholenewmom.com. I would purchase a can of whole fat coconut milk...Thai Kitchen brand...add sugar, and boil it down as mentioned in the article just before the actual recipe for the easier version.

Cream of coconut is found in some natural food stores and I once saw some in the natural food aisle of a supermarket, and when I went back to purchase it, it was gone....never saw it again! I refuse to order some online and pay shipping charges. Next time I come across some, I'll definitely buy it to try it out.I'm also severely lactose intolerant, and am allergic to milk in addition.

You can find Coco Lopez in most liquor departments or at a liquor store.

And it IS sweet.

Thank you, pricklypear and Ginsou. :)
No wonder I couldn't find it...I was looking in the wrong places. I had no idea it was used to make pina coladas.

Are you sure you need sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk? Just make sure you are substituting for the right one.

Thanks everyone. I made the pie on Sunday and it was a big hit (it was a big pie and it was polished off last night - it lasted less than 24 hours). By the way, it was evaporated milk and not sweetened condensed milk so I made an equal sub for vanilla almond milk. She loved it!

Well, we all know where to purchase Coco Lopez now....I found it in the liquor section of the supermarket yesterday. When I first saw it several months ago, I must have been looking for Redbridge beer. I have made it a habit to just browse up and down the aisles...you never know where or what you will find!
