Special Diet Notes & Options: Dairy-Free Coconut Lime Pie

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, and soy-free. Just be sure you select your graham cracker crust wisely, as some brands contain dairy or other top allergens.

For a gluten-free and dairy-free coconut lime pie, there are gluten-free crusts from brands such as Mi-Del, or you can make your own with this recipe (which includes a vegan option). Simply use gluten-free grahams, like our favorite, Kinnikinnick.

For vegan and vegetarian, alternatives to gelatin do exist! We haven’t tested it in this recipe, but many people swear by vegan jel.

Serves: 8
  1. Pour 1 ½ cups coconut milk beverage into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the three gelatin over the surface of the milk and then let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk the milk and the gelatin together and add the ½ cup of sugar. Place the mixture over medium heat on a stove top, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved and the milk begins to steam. Do not boil milk.
  3. Once the milk begins to steam, remove the pan from the heat. Rub the mixture between two fingers to ensure that the gelatin and sugar have dissolved. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut milk yogurt with the remaining 1 cup coconut milk. Add lime juice and the warm milk and gelatin mixture to the bowl. Whisk well.
  5. Ensure that the custard is at room temperature before pouring into the prepared pie crust.
  6. Refrigerate pie overnight or until firm.
