Easy Dairy Free No Bake Pumpkin Pie Recipe

One Thanksgiving my assignment was to bring pumpkin pie for dessert. Husband found a no bake pumpkin pie recipe. He wanted to make it to add something a little new and different to the Thanksgiving dinner menu that has been set in stone since 1986.

Keep reading to learn how to make this simple and delicious pumpkin pie dessert!

He makes the pie. The family enjoys the pie and Husband and I are high fiving ourselves because it is a much better tasting pie than the dry and/or slightly burnt pumpkin pies we’ve had in years past. 
Yay for trying new things for Thanksgiving dinner!


Oh nope.

Nope ditty nope, nope, nope.

How to Make a Dairy Free Graham Cracker Pie Crust

I needed a graham cracker pie crust for a no bake pie recipe (which I will post soon on Lazy Budget Chef!) As I read the graham cracker pie crust labels in the grocery store and I was ever so sad to find out every single one of those store bought pie crusts have butter in them.

I’m sure it tastes great but it isn’t something I should taste test with a dairy allergy.

Fortunately, the pie crust label also told me it takes a mere three ingredients to make a graham cracker pie crust. So I popped over a few aisles, bought a box of honey flavored graham crackers because I was feeling fancy, raced home and started to experiment.

And ta da! I made a milk allergy friendly graham cracker pie crust!

You can use plain, cinnamon, chocolate, etc. graham crackers in this recipe of you like. I went with honey because it will compliment the pie filling I will use to fill it.
