Can I substitute condensed sweetened coconut milk for evaporated milk in a pumpkin pie recipe?

I’m using the famous Libby’s recipe but it calls for evaporated milk and I’m vegan. Can I sub sweetened condensed coconut milk?

And maybe reduce the sugar in the original recipe, as the sweetened coconut milk adds to the total sugar.

Hey Natalie,
Since condensed milk is thicker than evaporated milk, we recommend doing a 1:1 swap with regular coconut milk if you happen to have some on-hand. If you only have condensed, sweetened coconut milk, thin it out with a little bit of water and you should be all set.
Hope that helps!
