Helpful Tips For Vegan Chocolate Pie
Reach for a medium firm tofu. If it is too firm it will not blend up the way you want it too. Make sure to take the time to whip it up to give it that thick and creamy consistency.
So I used a prepared pie crust but you are welcome to make your own vegan pie crust. Even a classic graham cracker crust instead of a cookie crust tastes delicious.
Allow The Pie Time To Set Up
Make sure you take the time to let the pie set up in the fridge. This is going to help firm up the filling so when you slice the pie it holds the shape. Otherwise, it will fall and spread once sliced.
Vegan Chocolate Pie Variations
Instead of a whipped cream or cocoa dusting add on some shaved vegan chocolate. This will add extra sweetness to the pie but also add tons of flavor.
Toast up some pine nuts and sprinkle over the top of the pie for a nice crunch factor. Or with some slivered almonds.
Next, you could consider topping your pie with fruit. Fresh raspberries, strawberries, or any other type of fruit you would like. It will compliment the chocolate tremendously.
You could add a layer of jam to the pie. Whether you spread some on the crust, add dollops that you swirl around the pie, etc. It will add a nice sweetness.
