Pumpkin Pie Recipe - Need Substitute For Sweetened Condensed Milk
0

15 posts in this topic

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!

    • Blood results - odd
      Hi I have been given a  working diagnosis of celiac disease TTG 103. I had the endoscopy yesterday and I am awaiting celiac serology ( tests go to a different lab so take longer). my GI Dr ordered more tests and some have come back odd, my ferrtain was 9 ( range 20-204) my folate 4.4 ( range 3.1 - 20.5) my B12 982 ( range 187-883). FBC  mean cell volume 76.9 ( range 80-100) mean cell haemaglobim 24 ( range 26.9 - 32) mchc 312 ( range 320- 359).   All other results appear to be in the normal range.  My question is the high B12 is odd, has any one else had anemia/ b12 deficiency symtoms whilst having high B12.   I went to the Dr as I am feeling awful, dizzy, palpitations and breathlessness and think it's to do with my iron, my gp was beyond useless and thinks it's all due to an infection as I had a temperature of 37.9. I still feel awful but not Like I have flu awful if that makes sense. I have gone gluten free as I have had the panel and the endoscopy now but feeling so much worse than I have in a long time. Gp has taken blood for CRP and FBC to rule out sepsis as I was feeling pretty broken as he though my iron levels would not cause these symptoms. I am going to try and get hold of my GI Dr or his sectary tomorrow and go back to the Gp and beg for iron.

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
