Substituting coconut milk for dairy in pumpkin/butternut casserole/souffle?

Hi all, quick question - wondering if anyone has experience with the baking behavior of coconut milk if I use it to make a combo pumpkin+butternut squash polpette-casserole-souffle

Sorry for the excess in descriptions- but I am trying to make a lactose intolerant guest happy. I wanted a fluffy and yummy concoction that rises nicely (but does not sink like a souffle)

I am combining several ideas- the Italian polpette (with squash, parmesan, mascarpone, eggs) that bakes up like a frittata of sorts, but airier and softer, like a souffle....

thinking of roasting pumpkin and squash, carmelizing onion, mix together scooped pulp. Add coconut milk and 2 or 3 eggs (or possibly separate out 4 eggs and mix first yolks, then beaten whites). add some nutmeg, maybe cinammon. and then bake...

Any suggestions/feedback?

Thanks!
