31

Updated for 2018! Who says that just because you follow a special diet, you can’t have your pie and eat it too? If you’re wondering what dairy-free dessert to serve for the holidays, you’ve come to the right place! Every year, I update this listing of dairy-free pies with even more incredible recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and beyond. It includes delicious holiday pie recipes to suit a variety of free-from needs plus additional crust recipes and tips for toppings. Vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, paleo, raw, or just dairy-free pies, we have a recipe or three for you to bake, and for your entire family to enjoy.

Dairy-Free Pies: Over 75 Recipes for the Holidays with vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, raw, and paleo options.

Over 75 Dairy-Free Pies for the Holidays

Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsOf course, all of the following pie recipes are dairy-free (lactose-free, casein-free, whey-free, milk-free, etc.). Plus, the recipes are gluten-free as noted, as long as you use a gluten-free pie crust. See the crust recipes near the end of this article for some great options. Also, for the dairy-free pies labeled as soy-free or optionally soy-free, where margarine is called for, use Melt Organic or Earth Balance Soy-Free for a good dairy-free and soy-free margarine option that bakes up beautifully.

Now, onto those holiday recipes for dairy-free pies. I’ve highlighted some my personal favorites! And you can find recipes for more of my favorite dairy-free pies in Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook – the new 2nd edition!

Don’t forget the topping! Truly dairy-free whipped topping is still a bit elusive, but it’s getting easier to locate in stores. Plus, it is surprisingly easy to make your own vegan whipped “cream” (or should I say crème?) at home. For full details on both store-bought and homemade options, see my detailed post on How to Find or Make Dairy-Free and Vegan Whipped Cream.

As for dairy-free ice cream, you can get a wonderful array of dairy-free, vegan, and gluten-free frozen desserts at most major grocers these days. I highly recommend any So Delicious Cashew Milk Frozen Dessert (AMAZING!), Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert (for nut-free & vanilla flavors), Nadamoo Coconut Milk Ice Cream, or my Purely Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe in Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook.

  1. Wow! I’m not a huge pie fan, only because I don’t care for pie crust, but this list left me speechless. I have a feeling I could eat a few slices this year if these were at my Thanksgiving table.

  2. Hi Alisa. Can you recommend your favorite brand of canned coconut milk to use in the Alisa’s pumpkin pie recipe? Thanks!

    • This is a dilemma right now, as so many of the full fat coconut milks on the market right now are very watered down and don’t set up. I found Native Forest Regular (not their Simple one) was very rich and thick. I shake the can in store, and if it sounds watery, it probably won’t set up nicely. If you use the eggs in the recipe, it should be okay even if your coconut milk isn’t quite thick, but I like the richness of thicker ones.

  3. Was the Oreo pie crust recipe link updated lately? When I click, it seems to take me to a vegan apple pie recipe on The Spruce’s website. I’d love to use this to help make my popular peanut butter pie into something my dairy- and soy-free child can eat! Thanks so much!

  6. I am just noticing that some of the links say that the recipe is nut free, but the recipe includes nuts. I just wanted to let you know!
