Peanut butter filling

Looking to make a dairy free peanut butter filling , what's the best way to dilute it? (Water, Oil, etc?)

  1. My usual is peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and a little milk, so I would think your best bet is to substitute margarine and a non-dairy milk (almond maybe?) for the last two.

    1. I've seen recipes for 'whipped cream' using one can of frozen coconut milk beaten with 1 cup powdered sugar, till fluffy. I suppose you could fold peanut butter into this.

      1. What are you filling?

        That will inform us, better, on how to advise you.

          Agreed. Peanut butter filling for a pie is very different than for a sandwich cookie....

            I'm not too familiar with those, i think its similar to a custard filling?
            Using a vegan coconut whipped cream mixed with the peanut butter would be amazing- the pb overpowers the light coconut flavor. Coconut cream recipe here:
            Or this vegan peanut butter pudding is simple, just needs to be chilled to set up:
            I don't think you would have great results simply taking peanut butter and "diluting" it.....
