This dessert quickly became my favourite chocolate dessert. Normally chocolate fudge pies have lots of butter and cream, but this has a secret ingredient that I promise no one will notice, that makes it much healthier!
Vegan Chocolate Fudge Pie
Serves 8 // Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free (if using dairy free chocolate chips)
Pie crust, pre-baked
350g oz extra firm tofu, press tofu for 30min and drain liquid
1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk of choice
scant 1/8 tsp salt
283g ( 1 1/2 cups or more) chocolate chips (dairy free if needed)
2-3 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice (If you are used to less-sweet desserts, you can omit)
optional: extracts, flavorings, or liqueurs
Pre-bake pie crust according to instructions
Press tofu if you haven't and drain liquid (I put a cutting board and a cast iron pan on top)
Carefully melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave – google how to melt chocolate),
Put everything into a food processor and blend until very smooth. Pour into a pie.
Put in fridge until chilled. This gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits.
