Are you gluten-free but think Thanksgiving or Christmas isn’t complete without Sweet Potato Casserole?  Try this gluten-free, dairy-free sweet potato casserole recipe that you make in a crockpot!

I think one of the worst things about having dietary restrictions from food allergies and intolerances is the inability to partake in many holidays.

I’ve always had a love affair with food.

Then, I began to have some health issues and thyroid medication wasn’t touching some of my thyroid symptoms.  After a while, and having done some research, I determined I needed to try going gluten-free.  Later, I learned I also needed to cut other foods out of my diet, and a major problem food was dairy.

Dietary restrictions were like a death sentence when first making changes to the foods I was eating.

Gradually, though, I found suitable gluten- and dairy-free replacements for most of my foods.

Still, holiday foods weren’t usually safe.  So, I end up making a plate of food for myself every holiday and rarely get to actually eat a real Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

That had to change!!!

So, I hosted Thanksgiving and made sure everything I made was safe for my food allergies.  I decided I would eat like royalty and hopefully show friends and family, in the process, that eating gluten- and dairy-free wasn’t as bad as anyone makes it out to be.

The first year I host, I made a last-minute decision to search for a gluten-free and dairy-free sweet potato casserole recipe.  In my mind, holiday meals aren’t complete without a humongous helping of sweet potato casserole.  If you don’t agree, I’m not sure we can be friends 😉

Reynold’s Slow Cooker Liners (because cleanup is SO much easier with these)

Feel free to experiment with your milk and sugar substitutions in this sweet potato casserole recipe too!

I’ve made this gluten-free, dairy-free sweet potato casserole with coconut sugar instead of brown sugar.  Sometimes I’ll use coconut milk (not canned) in place of the rice milk.

That’s what I like about this recipe!

It’s easily adaptable, just know that I’ve never tried to make this vegan by using Flax Eggs, so if you ever try it and it turns out, let me know!

Now, take this bad boy to your next family gathering.  If your gluten eaters decide to be jackwagons and not try it because they won’t be persuaded gluten-free is yummy.  Their loss and your gain … which happens to be like 2 lbs in a day.

I’ve been known to sit down and nearly make a meal out of this gluten-free, dairy-free sweet potato casserole.
