This pie was delicious! I substituted coconut milk instead of rice or dairy and it made it creamy and nutritious. Loved that it didn't have sugar. The texture was smooth and it was wholesome and dense, not light and fluffy like some pumpkin pies. Home whipped cream added a perfect amount of sweetness. Will definitely do this again.
