Dairy free substitute for butter
I'm going to attempt a paleo strawberry pie, but its going to be fed to a group they includes someone extremely sensitive to lactose and the recipe calls for butter. Even ghee wouldn't be okay. In any other dish, I would fall back on bacon fatty or soothe animal fat, but that seems wrong for a baked good, especially a pie. I would imagine most pills would be inappropriate as well. Coconut oil is probably my best hope, but its there something I could mix the oil with to get something that's closer to butter?
Also, regarding a completely unrelated recipe, is there a dairy free milk substitute that isn't coconut milk but will have similar properties of creaminess?
