Pumpkin & Coconut Pie (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

by Michelle on June 7, 2010 · 14 comments

in Dairy Free

Okay I have to say this may not be exactly like a traditional pumpkin pie, it’s maybe more like a tart.. but what ever it is, it tastes really good. It also is gluten free and dairy free.  It is nicely spiced and has a delicious creaminess due to the coconut milk and the base has a nice crunch made from almonds (and buckwheat if you add it) and coconut oil.

Enjoy :)

Yum! I love pumpkin pie and with coconut milk!? What a fabulous idea! I’ve always made my pumpkin pie with soft tofu, and it’s superb tasting recipe but with my choosing to avoid soy products these days it is nice to find an alternative. Thanks!

@Melodie Thanks! I love coconut milk and use it instead of dairy all the time. Oh tofu would be a pretty good substitute too- I’ve made a chocolate tofu pie once before which was pretty nice but very rich! Yeah I don’t have soy much either (except Tamari). Soy seems to be in as many foods here as you find corn in food in the US- so a lot!

@Heather Thanks Heather! I’ve only had it once or twice and that was made by my brother, so I’m going on how I think it should taste. So hope you like it!

Wow Michelle this looks delicious! I’ve never actually eaten a pumpkin pie before but I know they are quite popular in America. I really want to give this a go! In my study break :)

Thanks for this great recipe, it sounds really interesting and I’m going to give it a try!

@Carlie, thanks! Let me know how it goes :)

This looks and sounds amazing! I love pumpkin and coconut! I will definitely be making this. I haven’t cooked at all with coconut sugar yet – how do you like it? I’m very curious to try it but haven’t found it here in Prague yet.

Thank you Beth! Let me know how it goes :)
Coconut sugar- well it has a less molasses taste than rapadura sugar, I actually prefer coconut sugar over rapadura. I find coconut sugar is more versatile than rapadura because it has a less specific taste.

Wow…pumpkin and coconut…what a fabulous combo! I’ve bookmarked and totally want to make this soon, it sounds so tasty!

Hi Michele! Thanks for sharing this article at the Two for Tuesdays recipe blog carnival! Looking forward to you hosting the traveling carny as well!

I adore creamy dreamy pumpkin pie! Gonna try your recipe and then hopefully replace my mother’s for Thanksgiving! Her’s, while good, is not nearly as healthy as yours looks!

Hugs! Alex

Thanks for hosting the carnival and glad to be apart of it soon!
I hope you love my pumpkin & coconut pie! I’d love to know how you like it!
