Kosher Non-Dairy Pumpkin Pie

Nothing too fancy. Local stores don't have evaporated or condensed milk. I have Libby's pumpkin pie can. Thx!

I found a recipe on by Paula Deen. Is there a parve substitute for cream cheese?

  1. I made a pumpkin pie using a coconut soy creamer and it was okay, but not great.

    I know folks have had great success using silken tofu for custard pies, so I'd say check that out. This recipe had great ratings!


      I've never made this, but I thought I remembered that there was a pumpkin pie recipe on this blog.

      By the way, I don't think they make non-dairy evaporated or condensed milk; I've certainly never seen it.

      1. My neice makes the Vegan Pumpkin Pie from this Vegatarian Times recipe and it is acceptable to this non-vegan.............

          1. I make a parve pumpkin pudding using the libby's recipe on the can. I substitute an equal amount of almond milk for the evaporated milk and bake it without the crust. Everyone enjoys it.

            In some of these type of recipes I go on the assumption that the use of evaporated milk is due to availability (ie it was all that was available in the south during certain periods) or when nutritionists were trying to up the nutrition like adding dried milk to bread during the thirties with the Cornell formula or companies were pushing certain products (after all who makes the evaporated milk).

              I do exactly the same, except I use the crust. I used a shortbread cookie crust once, but I don't remember who makes it. It was so good we were fighting over it. Graham cracker crusts work too.

              Kosher parve graham cracker crusts are pretty easy to find.
