Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie

9 posts in this topic

Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to make pumpkin pie that is lactose-free and also tastes good? I have never experimented with this before but was hoping some of you more experienced folk would have some answers. Can soy milk replace sweetened condensed milk? I'm assuming not, but are there any alternatives then? Thanks in advance!

Soy milk can replace cow-juice, you may have to adjust

the sugar i the recipe some,

and lactose-free dairy milk is also an option.

There are many web sites e.g. vegan sites or

food-allergy related sites, where specific recipes

and techniques are given....

The results apparently are really good.

In the final picture, with the flavorings

and other ingredients, the taste component

of dairy milk may not be that major.

So there should be no reason to doubt that

dairy-free or lactose-free pie can be superb.....

Because I keep kosher, my pumpkin pies have been made with Coffee Rich Nondairy Creamer so that I am not serving a milk product after a turkey dinner .. while it isn't perfect, it does make life simpler ... and I add a little brandy to the creamer which makes it more festive ... :wink:

I have made pumpkin pie many times with either Silk soy milk or Rice Dream replacing the evaporated milk or cream. I've never seen a recipe calling for sweetened condensed milk, but these wouldn't be an exact replacement for that. But you can make the recipe on a can of pumpkin and sub soy or rice milk with no problem at all.

You don't need to replace sweetened condensed milk. Use the Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe and use your choice of milk substitutes (soy milk, non-dairy creamer, or coconut milk) to replace the evaporated milk. No need to adjust the sugar content then.

Great, thanks everyone! I've never made a lactose-free pumpkin pie before and usually just ate the regular kind and dealt with the pain afterward, but this year I'm determined to have a pain-free Thanksgiving.

This pie is dairy and egg free, and actually really good. My daughter likes it better than the label-label-label recipe, and I like it equally well.

Thanks for the post....this looks like it would work pretty well, I think I'll try it for a lactose intolerant friend.

      Hey all,
       
      I've made thicker and creamier sorbets with 25% to 35% sugar strained fruit purees and sugar, syrups, and other stabilizers that have worked well. However, because it's so much fruit and little to no water it can be an expensive project.
       
      I am trying to make "Water Ice" or "Italian Ice" in my home ice cream machine. Think of textures similar to Rita's Water Ice, Court Pastry Shop, or Miko's in Chicago. It eats much lighter than a sorbet but isn't really icy, but it's also not thick like sorbet. Ritas uses "flavoring" and sugar, while the other two use fruit juice. I'm thinking of thinning the strained fruit juice with water and adding a stabilizer, but I'm having trouble getting this in my home ice cream machine without it freezing solid like granita.
       
      Can anyone suggest a way to use real fruit juice, water, and a combination and concentration of stabilizers to get a looser, frozen fruit dessert that isn't icy?

      So I've been looking for the ultimate matcha brownies (technically blondies but it just doesn't have the same ring to it). I've made chewy and fudgy regular brownies, but I find white chocolate based blondies to be much trickier. I have made a few matcha brownie recipes in the past, but they all came out sad and cakey. So I have taken it upon myself to come up with my own recipe. My matcha brownies came out very moist and "fudgy" but not chewy. I'm thinking next time I should try using vegetable oil instead of butter and only dark brown sugar.

      I've searched high and low for a recipe for lemon mousse, firm enough to make little 'eggs' to go on a dessert plate. Ideally, it should not be based on lemon curd or lemon cream, but just plain old lemons.
      Also, please throw me the best chocolate mousse recipe EVER - I'm in a mousse phase....
      Thanks in advance.

      Once again, I tried to recreate my mother's shortbread cookies, using her recipe, and they didn't turn out. They were so crumbly they fell apart when you picked them up. I'm very attached to this particular recipe -- she told me that she got it from the first boy who ever kissed her, whose Scottish mother was renowned for them. That's one way to get a recipe!) She made them at all holidays. Here the recipe:
      1 cup of butter
      1/2 cup of sugar
      2 cups of flour
      pinch salt
      I've been creaming the butter and suger and adding the flour, chilling it and rolling it out and baking them at about 300 degrees. They spread more than hers did and they're just way crumbly. The taste is good, though.
      I wish I could as her for advice, but she's no longer with us -- can anyone help me?

      last night was my first attempt at a blueberry coffecake. it came out awesome but i felt that the topping part could be better. basicall, from the top of my head, it was 1 cup of brown sugar, 2/3 c flour, 1/2 cup of small diced up butter, and some cinnamon.
      the topping came out ok but seemed a little "grainy" like sandy and didnt have that crumbly bubbly style top.
      suggestions? thanks. will post pics next time.
