It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie—and your special diet is no reason to leave it off the menu.

This recipe calls for coconut milk, but there’s no coconut flavor to this traditional pumpkin pie. It tastes best when made the night before and allowed to sit in the refrigerator. This recipe can be made egg-free with good results. And if you need a gluten-free pie crust recipe, you’ll find one here.
