I'm making a chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving, but it calls for evaporated milk. Is this absolutely necessary, or could I use rice milk? I read that someone else used coconut milk as a evaporated milk substitute...would that work? I'm not sure what the purpose of evaporated milk is, so I don't really know where to start with finding something else to use...

Thanks!

Evaporated milk is basically milk in which 50% (I think) of the water has been evaporated -- so it is kind of like cream in that it is thick, but it is not cream....basically concentrated milk if you will (disregard if you already know this, I was just segueing into my point

Maybe like a vegan *cream* would work? A thick milk-like replacement? Coconut milk could work, it has about the same consistency but I dunno about the coconutty flavor, it might be too much but probably would taste really awesome.

Good luck I am sure it will be just lovely!

ETA: I think rice milk will be way too thin imo

I've used rice milk in place of evaporated milk in pumpkin pie, but I use less- 8oz of rice milk in place of a 12oz can of evaporated milk.

I'm not familiar with the particular recipe you're using, so I don't know if you really need the moisture or the fat in the recipe. But just hearing the words "chocolate" and "pecan" makes me think coconut milk work just fine!

I'm not vegan, nor have I ever tried this, but would coconut milk work? Coconut milk is pretty thick......

In The Joy of Vegan Baking, Colleen suggests using an unsweetened non-dairy milk and adding a thickener like arrowroot, kudzu etc.

Subbing because I was just about to post this exact question! I have a recipe for a yummy corn chowder that I just love, but it calls for evaporated milk and I figured out recently that DS is dairy allergic.

Use cashew cream.  Use one cup of soaked cashews, drain, then put in blender or vitamix covered with cold water.

Blend.
