Moo-less Chocolate Pie

This is from a very simple recipe from the Food Network, and it was soooo easy to make and really really good. I’ve already taste-tested this and it was a hit with vegans, vegetarians, and even omni’s.

The ingredients are really simple and easy, and it was fun to make too. It only took 20 minutes, from the start of setting up, to finishing. So this is quick as well.

The recipe:
2 cups chocolate chips (dark chocolate is the best in my opinion, and almost a requirement if you are vegan)
1/3 cup coffee liqueur
1 block silken tofu
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon agave nectar (I prefer raw agave nectar,which is a delicious honey substitute)
1 prepared chocolate wafer crust

Place a small metal bowl over a saucepan with simmering water. Melt the chocolate and coffee liqueur in the bowl. Stir in vanilla.

Combine the tofu, chocolate mixture, and honey (agave nectar) in the blender jar. Liquefy until smooth. If you find it is a bit too thick or rich, add a few splashes of plain soy milk to loosen it up.

Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the filling is set. Enjoy!

  1. ha, love the name of that pie.

  2. Looks delicious – I am definitely going to make this! We have all the ingredients at home, although I’ll have to make the crust since ready-made crusts are not available where we live.

  3. […] pie was very easy to make, and quite delicious as well. I found the original filling recipe through Eric at VeganGrub, and my only additions were a little bit of Grand Marnier, some salt to make the chocolate flavor […]

  4. Whoa – I’m glad these are just pictures cause I swore I gained 5 pounds just looking at this….

    Yea, chocolate and me cannot be in the same room for too long:(
