To Make The Crust or Not to Make it
If you’re feeling a little intimidated by the idea of making your own crust, fear no more. You can pick up one of our favorite ready-made crust at your favorite grocery store. This recipe uses a graham cracker pie crust and it works so well. If you’re feeling crafty, you’re welcome to make your own plant-based crust at home.
When it comes to tofu, make sure you buy the silken tofu (or soft tofu) which you can find both in the shelf-stable and refrigerated section of your grocery store.
Let’s talk about toppings! Let’s face it, this is the funniest part of making pies, smoothie bowls, oatmeal, and others. For this creamy 4-Ingredient Chocolate Pie, we have a few fun suggestions.
If you want a fresher option, then topping it with some fresh berries is a great idea. Fresh raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries go so well with such a succulent and chocolate-filled pie. If you’re feeling decadent, then a plant-based whipped cream (store-bought or you can make one a coconut whipped cream at home) is the way to go. Adding some chocolate shavings on top and a few mint leaves can elevate this homey pie to a fancy dessert.
For vegan chocolate chips, look at the ingredients and make sure they don’t say “contains milk.” I usually buy the Trader Joe’s or Guittard semisweet chocolate chips. For the piecrust, Keebler’s graham-cracker crust is a good bet.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for 45 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.)
In a blender or food processor, blend the melted chocolate, tofu, and vanilla until creamy.
Pour the tofu-chocolate mixture into the piecrust and place in the freezer for 30 minutes or until the filling solidifies. The pie can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
