Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Lemon & Lime Pie.

I use condensed coconut milk in a few of my recipes, that and dairy free whipping cream are the only specialist ingredients I use that you can’t buy at the supermarket.  Your local health store can often stock these items and if you google them a number of online health shops and vegan stores often carry them.  They are both great substitutes for the original dairy version and open up a whole new options of desserts that can be made.  To make this recipe you will need a can of coconut condensed milk -if you are just gluten free this can be easily substituted with traditional condensed milk.

This recipe also comes in a few variations to suit what you have in the store cupboard.  When I was thinking of this recipe I originally pictured it as having a biscuit crumb base but gluten free digestives were out of stock at the supermarket.  Luckily I have a good supply of gluten free flour so made a pastry style tart case.  If you are the opposite to me and have gluten free biscuits and no flour substitute the pastry base with 200g of crushed digestives mixed with 100g of melted dairy free spread.
