Vegan Chocolate Fudge Pie

Vegan Chocolate Fudge Pie - the easiest dessert to make, and also sneakily packed with protein from a secret ingredient that no one will notice (even the healthy skeptics!). Vegan, plantbased, gluten free, dairy free and so so easy to make! #vegan #chocolate #vegandessert #plantbased #tofu #highprotein #healthydessert #healthyish #glutenfree #dairyfree #chocolatepie #fudgey #easydessert | Foody First

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)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-bake pie crust according to instructions

  2. Press tofu if you haven't and drain liquid (I put a cutting board and a cast iron pan on top)

  3. Carefully melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave – google how to melt chocolate),

  4. Put everything into a food processor and blend until very smooth. Pour into a pie.

  5. Put in fridge until chilled. This gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits.
