We are getting closer and closer to Thanksgiving and I am glad to share my dairy-free sweet potato casserole with you. This recipe like others on our website started with some type of passion/desire. In this case, Joe’s love of coconut. Since he was a kid, he has loved coconut. He says it reminds him of the tropical adventures (like the TV show Gilligan’s Island) or the trip to Hawaii when he was a teenager. This recipe will not take long to make and it is an instant classic with most people. Especially if you like coconut!
You can even whip up some before Thanksgiving and try it out now! I know you will love it!!
Please note: This recipe is Dairy-Free, Processed food free (except for the Yams), Gluten-Free, all natural, Vegan. It is not a low-calorie side dish however. Just remember, good things come in small packages, so take a smaller scoop! Many of the items in the recipe list go to Amazon – but I did find the only item that was more expensive was the Sweet Potatoes. I found them at Food Lion for $3.86 for each 2lb can.

Dairy-Free Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Keywords: Thanksgiving, Christmas,
Recipe Yield: 20 Servings
Preparation Time: 30M
Cooking Time: 55M
Total Time: 1H 25M
- Sweet Potatoes (2 Bruce’s 2lb cans)
- Salt & Pepper (1 tablespoon total)
- Coconut Milk (1 13.5oz can)
- Coconut Flakes – optional (1 cup)
- Pecans (2 cups)
- Butter (1 Stick)
- Cinnamon (2 tablespoons)
- Mini Marshmallows (half bag)
- Coconut Sugar (1 Cup)
Sweet Potato Preparation:
I’m using a 13.5 fluid ounce can, I have used half of this milk in this recipe before. What I have decided to do is to mix in the whole can based on volume. If I use two or more 1lb cans of Sweet potatoes, then I will use the whole can. You will need to cook longer but it adds flavor and in my opinion worth it!
Final Dress up:
Add some whole pecans and marshmallows on top – place in oven for 5 minutes or less on Broil. *NOTE: keep an eye out so they don’t burn! – You can also add a mixture of 1 cup pecans, 1 cup of coconut sugar and then melt 1/2 stick of butter. Mix it together and spread on the top of the dish. Cook on broil for 6 minutes max.
We hope you enjoy our Sweet Potato Recipe with Coconut, it is one we use several times a year. It is almost a fool proof dish (outside of melting the marshmallows) and can be added to many meals.
Until next time!
