Want to play a fun game with your family at the dinner table? Ask them to guess which ingredients are in this pumpkin chocolate pie. I'm sure that they will never guess that what makes it smooth and creamy is .... wait for it ... TOFU!

Yep, filled with plant-based protein and pureed pumpkin, this pumpkin chocolate pie is actually nutritious for you! Most people think that tofu is just for savory dishes, but I love using silken tofu in desserts, smoothies, baked goods, but especially in pies! (I tend to use extra firm tofu in my savory dishes.)

Tofu has a bad rep of being bland and tasteless but if you learn how to use it you will end up loving it! For savory dishes, you can marinate it for a couple of hours with your favorite sauce and spices and for sweet preparations, you won't even taste it and it will add a firmer consistency.

It not only tastes amazing but it looks beautiful! Doesn't it? You will absolutely love it and will keep on coming back to it! A plat-based dessert classic.

I've served Pumpkin Chocolate Pie countless times over years and it's always a hit. Plus, it's so easy to make!

  • 1 cup of vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 15 ounces of pumpkin puree
  • 1 ½ cups of silken tofu
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 prepared vegan pie crust
  • Dollop of whipped cream for garnish (optional)
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon for garnish (optional)
  • Extra chocolate chips for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Mix with a fork until smooth. (If the chocolate is still lumpy, microwave for 20-second intervals, mixing in between, until the chocolate is completely smooth.)
  • Combine melted chocolate, pumpkin puree, silken tofu, brown sugar, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and ground cinnamon in a blender and blend on high until completely smooth.
  • Pour pie mixture into the prepared crust and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Let pie set in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours.



  • Pumpkin pie with chocolate needs time to set in the refrigerator in order to firm up. I highly recommend making it the night before to give it more time to firm up.
  • Make sure you are using the right tofu! Silken tofu is quite different than regular tofu so be sure your package states that it is silken. If you want to learn more check out my guide to tofu.
  • Using homemade pumpkin puree? Be sure to drain it well as it tends to have much more liquid than canned. I find that using canned pumpkin is easier and generally produces more consistent results.
