Description

A smooth, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth vegan chocolate pie recipe topped with dairy-free yogurt or whip. Gluten-free & no-bake.


Ingredients

Crust:

Filling:

Optional Toppings:

  • a few tbsp dairy-free yogurt for swirls*****, cacao nibs, chocolate coated cacao nibs, chocolate covered amaranth balls, edible rose buds and petals. Other topping ideas: coconut whip cream, shaved chocolate.

Instructions

  1. Process nuts, dates, and salt in a food processor into a fine crumble. Add agave and cacao powder and process to combine. Transfer into a 7″ tart pan (or pie plate) and press into a crust along base and edges. Place in the freezer while working on the next step.
  2. Blend the tofu into a smooth consistency in a power blender. Add all remaining filling ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour over prepared crust and tap the pan on the counter a few times to smooth the filling out.
  3. Optional: drizzle the yogurt over the cake using a cake decorating pen or pipping bag, create desired swirl pattern, sprinkle with any additional toppings. Freeze cake for 1 hour to set. Afterwards keep it refrigerated until serving. Enjoy!

Notes

*Use toasted pumpkin seeds for a nut-free version.

**Can also use chocolate chips. I recommend using your favorite chocolate bar or something similar for best flavor.

***If substituting with maple syrup, keep in mind it’s usually a bit sweeter than other liquid sweeteners, so you might want to start with a bit less and adjust the flavor to your liking.

****The espresso powder adds an incredible rich chocolate flavor to this pie.

*****A runnier yogurt works best (some dairy-free varieties can be a little dense).
